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

Fumito Ichinose, MD, PhD, FAHA

The American Heart Association's (AHA) strategic goal to reduce coronary heart disease, stroke and risk by 20 percent by the year 2020 has led to an emphasis on the importance of resuscitation and the chain of survival in AHA activities and use of resources. The Council on Cardiopulmonary, Critical Care, Perioperative and Resuscitation (3CPR) bench-to-bedside and community approach ranges from integrated cardiopulmonary physiology to issues of critical care, emergency cardiovascular care and CPR. Pulmonary hypertension and regulation of the pulmonary circulation have historically been areas of investigation for many of our council members. The council is keenly interested in promoting approaches that include clinical care, clinical research and basic science.

This is an exciting time for the 3CPR 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.

Council on Cardiovascular and Stroke Nursing (CVSN)

Cynthia M. Dougherty, ARNP, PhD, FAHA, FAAN

Through the valued expertise of our members we are able to accelerate the discovery, interpretation, and application of scientific knowledge to enhance cardiovascular health and treat cardiovascular diseases and stroke. The CVSN Council plays an essential role in the overall mission of American Heart Association through helping to develop scientific statements and advisories, determining the nature and scope of professional education activities, providing scientific expertise and conducting research as well as promoting translation/application of new knowledge and evidence-base practices in clinical settings.
