What is the CPCC Council's new name?
The Cardiopulmonary, Perioperative and Critical Care (CPCC) Council will change its name to Cardiopulmonary, Critical Care, Perioperative and Resuscitation Council (3CPR) on Sept. 15, 2009.
Who can benefit from the 3CPR Council?
The council targets physicians, surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, EMTs and scientists who are interested in emergency medicine, critical care/intensive care, trauma, resuscitation science, as well as pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary vascular biology. ReSS participants will also feel welcome.
What is the role of the 3CPR Council?
The council's bench-to-bedside and community approach ranges from integrated cardiopulmonary physiology to critical care, emergency cardiovascular care and CPR.
Pulmonary hypertension and regulation of the pulmonary circulation have historically been areas of investigation for many of our council members. The council is keenly interested in promoting approaches that include clinical care, clinical research and basic science.
Council activities focus on developing research interests and careers of young investigators, writing scientific statements for the AHA, supporting scientific meetings and providing representation on various AHA committees.
