Council on Cardiopulmonary, Critical Care, Perioperative and Resuscitation (3CPR)

Message from the Chair

Sébastien Bonnet, PhD, FAHA

The Council on Cardiopulmonary, Critical Care, Perioperative and Resuscitation’s bench-to-bedside and community approach ranges from integrated cardiopulmonary physiology to issues of critical care, emergency cardiovascular care and CPR. This is an exciting time for the Council; the past few years have seen growth in our membership and new programs, including the formation of a robust Early Career Committee and inclusion of pre-hospital providers into our activities and programming.
