Passing of Dr. Richard Aickin

It is with great sadness that ILCOR announces the passing of our friend and colleague Dr. Richard Aickin. Richard died surrounded by his family on the morning of Sunday 8 May 2022.

Richard served the resuscitation community in many important ways throughout his career. His leadership contributions included chairing the New Zealand Resuscitation Council, and Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation (ANZCOR), and the ILCOR Pediatric Life Support Task Force. Richard truly lived ILCOR’s mission of saving more lives globally through resuscitation.

He will be greatly missed as a colleague and friend.
