Mr Koster's career started in 1977 when he became a cardiologist in the Wilhelmina Gasthuis in Amsterdam. At the new Academic Medical Center, he fulfilled many different roles, from chief of the Coronary Care Unit to chief of the Emergency Cardiac Care unit. Mr Koster followed training and practiced intervention cardiology and implantation of cardiac devices (pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators, ICD's).
At the same time his research focussed on emergency cardiac care. After that his research centered on management of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). A large intervention study of benefit of automated external defibrillators (AED's) was performed between 2000 and 2002. Ever since, he has promoted and followed the very successful introduction of AEDs. At first the devices were placed with police, fire fighters, first responders. Since 2009 they have also been intensely widespread in residential communities. He retired from the cardiology practice in 2014 but has since dedicated much of his time to the OHCA study.
