In an Australian first, doctors have used a new resuscitation technique to revive three patients who were clinically dead for up to an hour.
One of the lucky survivors was Colin Fiedler, 49, who was pronounced dead at The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, Victoria, after suffering a heart attack, The Herald Sun reported.
Doctors brought Fieldler back to life using a U.S.-made cardiopulmonary resuscitation machine called the “AutoPulse” to perform continuous chest compressions, and another machine to pump blood and oxygen to his brain and other vital organs.
Seven cardiac patients were treated with the new machine – three survived with no brain injury.
Though the machine was commercialized in the U.S. in 2003, it is only now being tested in Australia. The Alfred Hospital is the only hospital in Australia to use the AutoPulse, but doctors hope that given the success of clinical trials it will be made available in more emergency rooms.
