AHA's Top U.S. Cardiovascular Meeting Under Way

The 2013 Scientific Sessions taking place in Dallas includes the Resuscitation Science Symposium. Besides 18,000 in-person attendees, more than 1.5 million virtual attendees are participating.

The American Heart Association's most important U.S. cardiovascular annual meeting, the Scientific Sessions, are under way at the Dallas Convention Center through Nov. 20. This major meeting includes the Resuscitation Science Symposium, Nov. 16-27, and 26 programming tracks, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation, heart failure, cardiovascular and stroke nursing, surgery, and prevention, behavior change and healthy lifestyles.

AHA expects 18,000 health care professionals to attend in person and more than 1.5 million people to attend it virtually.

The Lifetime Achievement Award in Cardiac Resuscitation Science was presented Nov. 16 to Dr. Michael Keys Copass, professor of medicine and neurology at the University of Washington School of Medicine, medical director of the Seattle Fire Department Medic One Program, and director of the UW Paramedic Training Program. The 2013 Award for Lifetime Achievement in Trauma Resuscitation Science was presented that day to Dr. Demetrios Demetriades, M.D., Ph.D., FACS, professor of surgery at the University of Southern California and director, Division of Trauma, Emergency Surgery and Surgical Intensive Care Unit of Los Angeles County (one of the country’s busiest trauma centers) and the University of Southern California Medical Center. Demetriades has more than 495 peer-reviewed publications, six books, and 95 book chapters and is one of the most-published trauma surgeons in the United States, according to AHA.

A cardiovascular seminar about strengthening the community response to cardiac arrest events is taking place Nov. 18 from 2 to 3:15 p.m. It is scheduled to feature experts from Japan, Denmark, the Netherlands, and the United States, including Dr. Bentley Bobrow, M.D., FACEP, medical director for the Arizona Department of Health Services' Bureau of EMS and Trauma System. His topic is "New Directions in Dispatch-Assisted CPR."

Bobrow is involved in the SHARE, Save Hearts in Arizona Registry & Education, program, a statewide program the bureau began in 2004 with the goal of having Arizona achieve the world's best cardiac arrest survival rate.

The meeting will include more than 5,000 presentations and an expo with more than 200 exhibitors showcasing the latest cardiovascular technology and resources.
