Dr. Shahram Bayanati is a board-certified physician from Iran, now based in Canada, and he brings over 20 years of medical expertise to the Save A Life Initiative Advisory Board. Dr. Bayanati began his medical profession after graduating from a well-known medical school in Iran, where he began studying and teaching different specialities, from teaching health care subjects as a professor and practicing as an emergency physician in the cardiology ward in an established hospital in Tehran, Iran. He has worked in several fields, but has kept his primary focus on emergency cardiology.
Dr. Bayanati has experienced first-hand the importance of CPR and ACLS, as he has personally saved many lives with the protocols, including a 10-year old boy who experienced congenital heart disease and was revived by Dr. Bayanati himself. He has now become an advocate for proper ACLS and CPR training and is currently an ACLS instructor and practicing physician in Canada. He hopes to continue working to spread this critical education to other countries alongside the Empowerment Team at the Disque Foundation.
