The use of EED during CPR
The physiological basis and rationale for using the EED during CPR are outlined in the Physiology tab.
W. W. Woodward was the first to report on the use of an EED-like device (Esmach Bandage) to revive a patient in cardiac arrest. It was in the Lancet in 1952 (Woodward W.W.. Lancet
1952; i: 82). See copy of original note herewith.
