Specialty programs focus on resuscitation and nursing

eP3_Story2_NEWExtend your Scientific Sessions 2016 educational experience by taking part in three specialty programs — the Resuscitation Science Symposium (ReSS), Cardiovascular Nursing Clinical Symposium and Frontiers in Science Summits: Stem Cells, Thrombosis, Arrhythmia Research and Vascular Disease.

Expect bigger things at the Nov. 12-14 ReSS. This international forum features the groundbreaking research in resuscitation and trauma science for both basic science and clinical audiences. Attendees will participate in lively and interactive discussions on topics such as: the future trauma and resuscitation trial design, inhalation therapies and brain-directed resuscitation.

The Nov. 14 and 15 Cardiovascular Nursing Clinical Symposium has programming just for advance practice and staff nurses. Attendees will gain knowledge about evidence-based practices that are crucial to the treatment and recovery of cardiovascular disease and stroke patients. Sessions include genomics as it applies to nursing, new cardiovascular medications and the updated Practice Guidelines for Continuous ECG Monitoring in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes.

The four Frontiers in Science Summits are interactive, science-focused gatherings with speakers interested in pre-discovery and pre-publication. The intimate setting and rapid-fire format sets the stage for the free exchange of ideas.

  • Frontiers in Science: Stem Cells Summit: This Nov. 15 summit highlights the latest stem cell breakthroughs and pre-publication discoveries. Sessions will examine stem cell biology; paracrine mediators of stem cell bioactivity; integrative models and translation; clinical trial tools, resources and constraints; and frontiers in stem cells.
  • Frontiers in Science: Arrhythmia Research Summit: This Nov. 14 summit brings experts in arrhythmia mechanisms, diagnosis and management. Discussions will cover arrhythmogenesis in cardiac conduction and repolarization; neuroregulation, cognition and the atria; ventricular arrhythmias in structural heart disease; atrial fibrillation channels and therapeutics and mechanisms of arrhythmogenesis.
  • Frontiers in Science: Vascular Disease Summit: This Nov. 14 summit returns for a second year with several presentations, including talks on lower extremity arterial disease, subclavian artery disease, venous thrombosis and abdominal aortic aneurysm.
  • Frontiers in Science: Thrombosis Summit: This Nov. 14 summit explores the most recent progress in thrombosis research. Topics include venous thrombosis, platelets, thrombosis in cancer patients and emerging therapies offering the promise of preventing thrombosis without causing bleeding.
