Dr. Aufderheide is an internationally recognized researcher in the field of emergency cardiac care, whose scholarly achievements have had a significant impact on the practice of emergency medicine. He developed and pioneered use of out-of-hospital 12-lead ECGs, now widely practiced throughout the world. His discoveries include the detrimental effects of excessive ventilation rates and incomplete chest recoil during CPR, active compression decompression CPR and the impedance threshold device to improve hemodynamics during CPR, and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)-facilitated resuscitation for patients with refractory out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. In 2009, he was elected to the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) for his significant contributions to the fields of medicine and public health.
