"We are pleased to recognize Dr. Ziv's novel research and are excited to see the results of his critical work," said Michael Miller, senior vice president and general manager of Cardiac Care for Philips Healthcare. "As a leader in resuscitation, Philips is committed to continuing innovation in the field by supporting pioneering studies that may provide insights into the most effective ways to deliver resuscitation and ultimately lead to saving more lives."

This research could help lead to the development of treatments to prevent such damage from occurring.
