State of the Future of

Resuscitation Conference

Join us for the Inaugural State of the Future of Resuscitation Conference!

Experts from around the world will discuss a wide range of topics related to advances in resuscitation science and clinical practice.  The goal is to discuss ways to combine the best evidence and experience from the innovative work of the participants to optimize the systems-of-care approach to cardiac arrest.  At the conclusion of the meeting the speakers will draft a Task Force report based upon a summary of the lecture content and panel discussions.  The Task Force report will focus primarily on pre-hospital advances, with the intent to create a blueprint for clinicians.  This blueprint will include sections on advances in lay rescuer CPR, delivery of more effective responder CPR and defibrillation, and multiple developments in advanced resuscitation.  The report will provide readers with the most up-to-date science and technology including expert opinions and the latest pre-clinical and clinical evidence that can be used today and in the future to optimize outcomes after cardiac arrest.  The Task Force Report will be published in JEMS.
