What's New for 2020

AHA is currently planning this meeting to be an in-person event AND a virtual event.

The decision to move forward as a hybrid event or convert to a totally virtual event will occur 60 days prior to the meeting.

We know that many of you are fighting, both personally and professionally, on the front lines during these uncertain times.

The AHA is committed to supporting your life-saving efforts with COVID-19 resources, research funding opportunities and disseminating the latest in cutting-edge resuscitation science and clinical practice.

We also are looking towards the future to ensure that we continue to support your work when we return to a state of normalcy because the dissemination of science and new learnings must always continue. In the interim we want to stay connected to the people that we care about as well as news, information, and education.

Program Description

This year, the 2020 Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS) will be a two-day event with both on-site and virtual options. 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.
