Saturday, July 9, 1960: CPR

While there is no date or moment that cardiopulmonary resuscitation was "invented," the awareness, application and study of the procedure increases with the publication of "Closed-Chest Cardiac Massage" in the July 9 edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association. The paper adds to the work previously done by others, including Dr. Peter Safar, known as "The Father of Modern Resuscitation."
