Programming - Resuscitation Science Symposium 2023

About This Meeting

The Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS) is an international forum for fundamental, translational, clinical and population scientists and care providers to discuss recent advances related to treating cardiopulmonary arrest and life-threatening traumatic injury.

With a growing understanding of the shared pathophysiology between cardiac arrest and traumatic injury at multiple levels of biological organization, ReSS provides a unique opportunity for transdisciplinary interactions that rapidly translate advances in the resuscitation field from fundamental to translational to clinical to population science.

Who Should Attend

Appropriate audiences 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 treatment of cardiac arrest and trauma.
