Resuscitation Research Programs in Three Spheres

  • Peter Safar (a1)


Research on acute dying processes, emergency resuscitation (cardiopulmonary-cerebral resuscitation, CPCR) and long-term resuscitation (intensive therapy) have the potential of leading to so far unimagined restoration of total body function, including human mentation, after sudden cardiac death from ventricular fibrillation, asphyxia or exsanguination; and also after prolonged terminal states from trauma or other insults—conditions which have so far been considered irreversible. Since the 1950's, an increasing number of investigators have embarked on resuscitation-related research.
