Surprising new way to resuscitate. Belgian emergency doctor: “But not suitable for everyone”

Don’t be surprised if you soon see a rescuer at work with no fewer than two defibrillators. Belgian doctors have recently started using a new technique to treat cardiac arrests. This makes them one of the first in the world, together with Canada and New Zealand. Emergency doctor Philippe Dewolf (UZ Leuven) was even able to save a life with it a few weeks ago. He explains which patients it is suitable for and what the benefits are for them. “After our ‘classic’ resuscitation failed seven times, the DSED technique was the deciding factor.”
