Late-Breaking Abstracts in Resuscitation Science at ReSS
These innovative abstracts will provide the latest breakthroughs in basic and clinical science, presenting cutting-edge, exciting and pivotal research results.  Posters will be presented on Saturday evening, and Orals will be presented on Sunday afternoon. 

ReSS Session XIV, State of the Science - Hypothermia, 2:15 - 3:30 PM at the Omni Dallas Hotel. 
This session will include a panel of hypothermia experts who will summarize the state-of-the-science related to hypothermia.  ReSS will adjourn after this session to allow participants to attend the late- breaking clinical trial session being held in the Dallas Convention Center.

Scientific Sessions Late Breaking Clinical Trials LBCT.01, Acute Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Care, 4:00 - 5:19 PM in Hall E of the Dallas Convention Center.
ReSS attendees are invited to attend this session at no additional cost.  These hypothermia clinical trials will be presented in this session:
  • Randomized Clinical Trial of Pre-hospital Induction of Mild Hypothermia in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Patients Using a Rapid Infusion of 4oC Normal Saline - The aims of this randomized clinical trial were to determine whether early in-field cooling improves survival, functional status in resuscitated cardiac arrest patients.
  • Target Temperature Management 33°C Versus 36°C After Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest, A Randomized, Parallel Group, Assessor Blinded Clinical Trial: TTM - This randomized trial was designed to investigate the optimal target temperature management strategy after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest with regard to survival, neurological function and safety.
