Program Description

NEW! This year, the 2018 Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS) will be a two-day international stand-alone conference! Resuscitation clinicians and researchers will have the opportunity to participate in lively discussion on recent advances related to treating cardiopulmonary arrest and life-threatening traumatic injury, in an intimate environment, with the ability to network with mentors and peers!
With an increasing understanding of the shared pathophysiology between cardiac arrest and traumatic injury at multiple levels of biological organization, ReSS can provide a unique opportunity for transdisciplinary interactions that rapidly translate advances in the resuscitation field from fundamental to translational to clinical to population science.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the symposium, participants will be able to identify recent advances related to:
  • Treating cardiopulmonary arrest
  • Treating life-threatening traumatic injury
  • Studying cardiopulmonary arrest
  • Studying life-threatening traumatic injury

Who Should Attend?

The audience will include emergency physicians, trauma surgeons, neurosurgeons, cardiologists, critical-care nurses, intensivists, emergency medical providers, resuscitation educators and researchers with basic, bioengineering, clinical or other experience related to treating cardiac arrest and trauma.
