Program Description

This year, the 2019 Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS) will be a two-day international stand-alone conference! 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.

ePosters and QR Codes

ePosters and QR Codes

Gain greater and long-term exposure and visibility for your poster by making it available online as an ePoster (electronic version of the poster). In addition, waiting on your poster board onsite will be a unique QR barcode that attendees can scan by using a smartphone or camera-equipped tablet to let them view your ePoster and abstract as well as listen to any recorded narration or videos you provide.

Attendees can view ePosters at workstations onsite, with their personal computer, or even on their smartphone. If attendees can’t make your presentation, they can still learn about the science through this technology. If you activate the ePoster Discussion Forum when you submit, attendees can securely and privately communicate questions about your poster and you can view how many times your ePoster has been viewed.

The 2019 ePosters can be viewed during the meeting at (link opens in new window).

To review ePosters from prior years, go to the AHA Archive at (link opens in new window).

ePoster Uploading
All poster presenters are required to upload their ePoster for online viewing. The secure ePosters submissions (opens in new window) site opens in early October. Instructions for uploading your ePoster and other media will be emailed to you in early October from Uploading is simple and quick, and you can either use the same file for the ePoster as you plan to use for print or provide a multi-page file.

Poster Printing

The AHA offers discounted poster printing services through our preferred provider, Digital Acumen's APPRISOR. We recommend you take advantage of the easy and convenient service to have your poster printed, shipped to the meeting, and hung on your board for you on the day of your presentation. Save money by printing early! Both ePoster files and poster print files are conveniently uploaded through the same secure ePosters submissions site (opens in new window).

You will receive emails with the link for the submission site and your sign-in credentials. Please add to your Contacts and check your Spam/Junk filter to ensure receipt of these emails, or email for help.
