Date:11/7/2008

Rhode Island Hospital's Dr. Ohad Ziv will use grant to advance resuscitation research

NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHI) today announced that Dr. Ohad Ziv, Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiologist at Rhode Island Hospital, has been selected as the recipient of the second annual American Heart Association-Philips Resuscitation Fellowship Award.

Funded by a grant from Philips Healthcare, the Fellowship encourages young investigators in the early stages of their careers to advance the resuscitation field through basic and clinical research. The American Heart Association selected Dr. Ziv based on the merits of his research proposal and its applicability to the field of resuscitation. The award, which provides a $100,000 grant over a two-year period, will enable Dr. Ziv to pursue research on the influence of underlying heart disease and genetic background on the characteristics and mechanisms of ventricular fibrillation.

Dr. Ziv will be recognized at an awards luncheon taking place at the American Heart Association's annual Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS) on November 8 in New Orleans. This meeting is held each year in conjunction with the association's Scientific Sessions.

"I am honored to receive this prestigious award from the American Heart Association and Philips, and feel privileged to stand alongside two remarkable organizations that work tirelessly to move the field of resuscitation forward," said Dr. Ziv. "I look forward to doing my part to deepen our knowledge of this complex field of study."

Dr. Ziv's research will allow scientists to better understand the possible etiology of ventricular fibrillation, which is the most common cause of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). This research could help lead to the identification of a heritable component of the disease. Currently, the out-of-hospital SCA survival rate in the U.S. is only six percent.
