Philips and American Heart Association Present Fourth Annual Resuscitation Fellowship Award
Date:11/12/2010

ANDOVER, Mass., Nov. 12, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHI) today announced that Dr. Hung Wen Lin, Ph.D., research fellow at the Cerebral Vascular Disease Research Center, Department of Neurology, University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine, has been selected as the recipient of the fourth annual American Heart Association-Philips Resuscitation Fellowship Award.

The $100,000 grant, which is funded over a two-year period by Philips, is intended to encourage young investigators in the early stages of their careers to pursue basic and clinical research related to resuscitation.  The American Heart Association-Philips Resuscitation Fellowship Award will enable Dr. Lin to continue his research on the effects of cardiac arrest on brain circulation.  It's anticipated that Dr. Lin's research will contribute to identifying a standard therapy to preserve brain function following cardiac arrest.  

"With advanced technology and a resolve to support the resuscitation and emergency care community in saving lives, Philips has long been a champion for the advancement of research," said Derek Smith, senior vice president and general manager, Therapeutic Care, Philips Healthcare.  "In that spirit, we are honored to support the AHA and its international community of thought leaders with funding in pursuit of innovation."

Dr. Lin will be presented with the Fellowship Award on November 13, 2010, at the Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS) meeting, which is held each year in conjunction with the AHA's Scientific Sessions.  This year's meeting will take place in Chicago, Illinois, at the McCormick Place Convention Center.  

Philips is a world class leader in emergency care and resuscitation solutions.  The Philips family of resuscitation products reflects the principles and intent of the newly unveiled American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines 2010 for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiac Care, as well as the new European Resuscitation Council (ERC) Guidelines for Resuscitation 2010.

Philips HeartStart defibrillators are tailored to support the needs of all types of responders, from lay people to professional healthcare providers.  Philips defibrillators combine ease-of-use benefits, such as voice instructions and compact design, with clinically proven features for heart rhythm assessment and defibrillation as well as CPR coaching and data management.
