Dr. Keith Lurie is a practicing cardiac electrophysiologist and resuscitation scientist who, over the past 25 years, has devoted himself to study novel ways to resuscitate patients experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. Dr. Lurie earned his bachelors degree at Yale University and his medical degree at Stanford University. He studied cardiovascular medicine at the University of California in San Francisco and later joined the faculty there. He has been on the faculty at the University of Minnesota since 1991. As one of the leading innovators in the field, he has helped to develop new devices and methods that optimize cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and, in turn, improve survival chances following cardiac arrest. In addition, he has become a respected thought leader in developing and implementing a systems-based approach to managing and treating sudden cardiac death events. Some of his most notable contributions include the development and assessment of various resuscitative techniques such as the impedance threshold device (ITD), active compression-decompression (ACD) CPR and the use of intra-thoracic pressure regulation to modulate cerebral and systemic circulation in states of severe hypotension and head injury. He has also helped to develop devices to treat heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms. He has mentored scores of research and clinical fellows over the past 30 years and he actively collaborates with multiple scientist colleagues worldwide. A professor of Emergency Medicine and Internal Medicine at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Lurie also directs an NIH-funded research laboratory at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis and he is a consultant for Zoll Medical.
