Dr. Lyn Yaffe, Chairman & CEO, EPR-Technologies, Inc, A DotCom Magazine Interview

    About Dr. Lyn Yaffe and EPR-Technologies:

    Dr. Lyn J. Yaffe is a family medicine doctor in Gaithersburg, Maryland. He received his medical degree from University of Maryland School of Medicine and has been in practice for more than 20 years.

    Today, we have Lyn Yaffe joining us. Lyn is the Co-founder, Chairman, and CEO of EPR-Technologies. EPR Technologies is a biomedical spinoff of the Safar Center for Resuscitation Research, University of Pittsburgh. EPR Technologies is committed to the preservation of human life through rapid profound hypothermia, by pursuing techniques and patented products for emergency preservation and resuscitation (EPR) to save a life when standard cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) fails.

    In the past decade, Lyn has been actively involved in research and development programs related to patient/casualty monitoring strategies, emergency hypothermia and rapid cooling techniques for point-of-injury care to induce ultra-profound cooling and temporary suspended animation (EPR), and semi-automated to automated, rapid vessel access techniques for therapeutic hypothermia, and a range of automated needle/catheter guidance and placement technologies.

    About Lyn Yaffe
    Lyn Yaffe, M.D., was instrumental to the development of the concept of EPR during the research and development work at the Safar Center of Resuscitation Research, University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine. Lyn has been dedicated to the concept and knowledgeable with regard to its emergency life-saving utility and potential applications in the field of resuscitation. Given the complexities of the EPR procedure and the demanding setting in which it will be used, these points take on special importance in this regard. Lyn and his team are therefore the best group to bring EPR forward successful development and product commercialization. Lyn completed undergraduate education at the Johns Hopkins University, School of Arts and Sciences, majoring in biophysics, in 1968. He received his M.D. degree at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine, in 1972, and completed pathology and research post-graduate training at Columbia University, New York, NY, with additional molecular biology research experience at the Roche Institute of Molecular Biology, in 1978. In the past decade, Lyn has been actively involved in research and development programs related to (1) patient/casualty monitoring strategies, (2) emergency hypothermia and rapid cooling techniques for point-of-injury care to induce ultra-profound cooling and suspended animation (EPR), and (3) semi-automated to automated, rapid vessel access techniques for therapeutic hypothermia, and a range of automated needle/catheter guidance and placement technologies.

    About EPR-Technologies
    Our Vision is that EPR is the next emergency life-saving “Standard of Care” procedure following failure of CPR on any victim of cardiac arrest. And that every victim is able to come home from the hospital and live a normal life.

    The company is a biomedical spinoff of the Safar Center for Resuscitation Research, University of Pittsburgh, and is committed to the preservation of human life through rapid profound hypothermia by introducing patented products for “Emergency Preservation and Resuscitation” (EPR) to save a life when standard cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) fails.
