Resuscitation 2010 Congress

Porto 2010
From 2nd until 4th of December 2010, the Resuscitation Congress organized by the European Resuscitation Council will take place in Porto, Portugal. This congress takes place each year in a different European country and is famous for great scientific programs. Every year more participants interested in the subject of cardiopulmonary resuscitation visit the congress, and organizers expect this one to be the biggest yet. New CPR guidelines came out just recently and a good portion of the talks will be devoted to them, but judging from the preliminary program there will be a lot of other interesting topics presented by some of the leaders in the field.

We will be there as well, and not just as passive participants. Our founder, Dr. Ivor Kovic, will present his scientific work together with his colleagues.

On Saturday, 4 December in room Miragaia between 11:00 – 12:30, Dr. Kovic will talk about mobile phones in the chain of survival. He will demonstrate some of the fascinating ways mobile phones can help us increase survival rates of sudden cardiac arrest. During the talk he will also mention his CPR invention which utilizes mobile phones to offer CPR prompts & feedback. All those interested in the subject will be able to see and test our CPR PRO Cradle and mobile app after the talk.

Dr. Kovic is also the coauthor of another paper which will be presented as a poster. Paper titled “Comparing methods for weight estimation of children” will be displayed in the Poster Room. The authors will be answering questions during the Poster Tour 22 on Friday, 3 December during lunch.

See you in Porto!
