General Information

The 2017 Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS) is a three-day international forum at Scientific Sessions 2017 where resuscitation clinicians and researchers can participate in lively discussion on recent advances related to treating cardiopulmonary arrest and life-threatening traumatic injury.

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.

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 treating cardiac arrest and trauma.

Key Highlights

Key ReSS highlights include: the Young Investigator Networking Event, interactive poster sessions, original science oral abstracts, and educational sessions developed by the most significant thought leaders in resuscitation and trauma.


Again this year, there is no separate registration to attend ReSS 2017! Your Scientific Sessions registration now includes access to the Resuscitation Science Symposium 2017 programming.
