Frank Pantridge

INVENTOR OF THE DEFIBRILLATOR

Frank Pantridge was awarded the Military Cross, for his work as a medical officer during World War II, before later being appointed consultant physician at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast. Having studied in the United States, his research inspired him to introduce the mobile coronary care unit and he later developed the portable defibrillator which he fitted in a commandeered ambulance. Though cumbersome, the prototype led to the introduction of the first truly portable defibrillator in 1968 and Pantridge’s ingenuity has led to the saving of innumerable lives.
