Bernard Lown is a pioneer in research on sudden cardiac death. He invented the defibrillator and introduced the technique of cardioversion. He discovered the use of lidocaine in treating ventricular arrhythmias. Very early in the course of his career Dr Lown shed light on the relationship between potassium and digitalis.
