Dr. Keith Lurie is a cardiac electrophysiologist and resuscitation scientist who has developed novel ways to resuscitate patients experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. He has helped to develop new devices and methods that optimize cardiopulmonary resuscitation and improve the likelihood of survival following cardiac arrest. These include the development and assessment of various resuscitative techniques such as the impedance threshold device (ITD), active compression-decompression (ACD) CPR, the development of devices to elevate the head and thorax during CPR and the development of a coronary sinus catheter and left ventricular pacing system for heart failure. A professor of Emergency Medicine and Internal Medicine at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Lurie also directs a NIH-funded research laboratory at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis.
