Abstract:

This grant funded expenses related to the third Safar Symposium held at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine on June 23, 2005. 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 The Inflammatory Response in Resuscitation and an afternoon session on Advances in Human Simulation Education. The symposium featured 10 speakers 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 Symposium was linked to the annual Peter and Eva Safar Lecture for the Sciences and Humanities at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine along with the first clinical consortium of trauma investigators both civilian and military focused on a potential clinical trial of a novel resuscitation approach to traumatic arrest called Emergency Preservation and Resuscitation.
