Bernd Böttiger studied human medicine at the University of Heidelberg. Since 2007 he has been full professor and director of the Clinic for Anaesthesiology and Operative Intensive Care Medicine at the University Clinic in Cologne.
One focus of his scientific work is cardiovascular arrest and the subsequent reperfusion.
This mainly includes the transient global cerebral ischemia. The intensive scientific occupation with this subject area takes place through an interdisciplinary combination of clinical and basic-oriented experimental research.
success in this context is the international multicenter study on thrombolysis during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (TROICA) carried out under his leadership. His working group and himself have received numerous national and international prizes for previous scientific work.
For years he has also been committed to training the population, especially schoolchildren, in resuscitation techniques on a national and international level. From 2009 - 2016 he was a member of the executive committee of the German Society for Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine (DGAI).
