Dr. Tom Aufderheide is a Professor of Emergency Medicine with Tenure and Associate Chair of Research Affairs and Director of the NIH-funded Resuscitation Research Center in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin. He is a nationally and internationally recognized researcher in the field of emergency cardiac care, whose scholarly achievements include numerous state-of-the-art research studies and over 100 peer-reviewed publications, including two papers in the New England Journal of Medicine, that have had a significant effect on the practice of emergency medicine, particularly prehospital identification and treatment of the ischemic patient with the use of prehospital 12-lead electrocardiography and predictive instruments. He has served as principal and co-principal investigator on many important national studies, including the Public Access Defibrillation (PAD) Trial, which doubled survival rates for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and will provide the objective data on which to base national healthcare policy for the next decade.

Dr. Aufderheide is one of a handful of nationally recognized researchers actively engaged and NIH-supported in the complex area of out-of-hospital cardiac resuscitation research that is likely to significantly change national and international CPR education, training, and clinical practice, including the multi-site Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (ROC) that has both cardiac and trauma clinical trial arms. He also is funded by NIH-NINDS for the NETT Network (Neurological Emergencies Treatment Trials), which will promote and conduct clinical trials in neurologic emergencies.
