He has also served for 5 years as a Member of the Editorial Board of Circulation. He is also working on brain and heart protection in cardiac arrest and stroke by therapeutic hypothermia. He has recently developed new techniques of hypothermia for brain protection in OHCA and Stroke. This technique has been fortuitously used after resuscitation of his wife at home in June 2011 with absolutely no neurologic deficit despite 6 minutes of no flow.

This device was mostly designed for major neurologic disorders.
