Resuscitation Science Symposium 2021 will be held November 12-14, 2021 at the Westin Waterfront Hotel in Boston, MA. 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.

The 3CPR Council’s areas of focus encompass integrated cardiopulmonary physiology, critical care, emergency cardiovascular care, and CPR. The council takes a bench-to-bedside and community approach to clinical care, research, and basic science. Pulmonary hypertension and regulation of pulmonary circulation have been topics of ongoing attention.

The CVSN Council accelerates the discovery, interpretation, and application of science to enhance cardiovascular health and treat cardiovascular diseases and stroke. The council helps develop scientific statements and advisories, guide professional education activities, provide scientific expertise, conduct research, translate findings, and promote evidence-based practices in clinical settings.
