What's New for 2020

#ReSS20 will now be a 100% virtual experience.

After months of thorough, thoughtful review and discussion, and with a continued commitment to the health and safety of participants and staff, the American Heart Association will present the Resuscitation Science Symposium as a 100% virtual experience in light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event will be held November 14–16, 2020, with registration opening in mid-August.

We also are looking towards the future to ensure that we continue to support your work when we return to a state of normalcy because the dissemination of science and new learnings must always continue.

Late-Breaking Resuscitation Science Abstract Submission

The incentive to disseminate the latest cardiovascular and stroke science to colleagues around the world has never been greater.

To address this abundant need the Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS) is reimagining the way science is shared! Now YOU can present from ANYWHERE. Connect... Engage...and Share!

Accepted abstracts:

  • Will be presented virtually
  • Gain a greater overall reach for your science with a larger audience
  • Grow your network and discuss your findings with the audience using live chat
  • Can incorporate video clips, animations, 3D models, audio presentations and more!

Program Description

This year, the 2020 Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS) will be a virtual three-day event with both on-site and virtual options. 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.
