Program Description

This year, the 2019 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.

Conference Learning Objectives

  • Identify best practices for improved outcomes in cardiopulmonary arrest.
  • Discuss research and advancements in the field of cardiopulmonary arrest.
  • Identify best practices for improved outcomes in life-threatening traumatic injury.
  • Assess research and advancements in the field of 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.
