James Jude Wikipedia
James R. Jude (June 7, 1928 – July 28, 2015) was an American thoracic surgeon who was one of the developers of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
While working as a resident at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore in the 1950s, Jude made the discovery that manual pressure applied to the exterior of a patient's chest could restore cardiac output in the case of cardiac arrest. He later went on to promote CPR among the medical community. Jude practiced thoracic surgery in Miami. For his contributions to the development of CPR, he received the Hektoen Gold Medal from the American Medical Association with William B. Kouwenhoven and Guy Knickerbocker.
