Abstract:

The Sixth Wolf-Creek Conference was held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Rancho Mirage from June 4, 2001 to June 7, 2001. Approximately 70 internationally renown experts on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation attended the Conference and presented their most recent research findings. Four Army Medical officers attended and observed the Conference. The experts specifically focused on issues of optimizing waveforms and emergencies for defibrillation, mechanical options for improving blood flow during cardiac arrest, more optimal vasopressor interventions during CPR, myocardial and cerebral preservation during CPR, and outcome measurements. The proceedings of the Conference will be published in a Supplement of the Journal of Critical Care Medicine.
