An Australian man who was clinically dead for 40 minutes has been brought back to life by a new resuscitation technique, according to News.com.au.


Colin Fiedler, 39, was one of three cardiac arrest patients brought back to life after being dead for between 40 and 60 minutes at The Alfred hospital, which is experimenting with new techniques in the emergency department.

The site reports the hospital is testing a mechanical CPR machine, which performs constant chest compressions, and a portable heart-lung machine to keep oxygen and blood flowing to the patient's brain and vital organs.
