Abstract:

This grant funded expenses related to the second Safar Symposium held at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine on Oct 30, 2003. This is an ADDENDUM to the final report submitted October 14, 04. This symposium is held each year in honor of the late Dr. Peter Safar, pioneer of CPR, resuscitation, critical care, and disaster medicine. The symposium focused on two aspects of medical research of importance to the field of resuscitation medicine in its broadest scope, namely, a morning session entitled Breakthroughs in Resuscitation and an afternoon session on The Use of Human Simulation in Medical Education and Research. The symposium featured 12 speakers from around the world, and was well received by over 200 attendees, including physicians, scientists, medical residents, fellows, and students, nurses, paramedics, and other allied professionals in the field of resuscitation medicine. The proceedings of the second Safar Symposium were published as a free-standing seventy-four page supplement to the February 2004 issue of the journal Critical Care Medicine. The topics presented included lectures and interactive sessions focused on novel approaches to resuscitation of victims of both military and civilian trauma, and state-of-the-art approaches to teaching optimal resuscitation strategies to military and civilian care providers - from medic to in-hospital personnel.
