Why attend the Cardiac Arrest Survival Summit?

The science and practice of emergency cardiovascular care changes rapidly, from the home to EMS to intensive care. The Cardiac Arrest Survival Summit will feature the most innovative content and speakers from around the world to keep you informed and at the cutting edge of your field.

For three decades, ECCU has been the one place where the widest spectrum of resuscitation professionals – instructors, practitioners, program directors, and researchers, as well as SCA survivors and community champions – come together for learning, inspiration, and networking.

The evolution of ECCU into the Cardiac Arrest Survival Summit will continue to provide the quality content and speakers you expect, and now include action-oriented programs and dynamic new content that brings together a broader range of partners working on initiatives to INFORM, MOTIVATE AND ACTIVATE our global community.

Network with colleagues, resuscitation leaders and experts, professionals, survivors, community leaders and exhibitors – all working together to improve cardiac arrest survival rates. The Citizen CPR Foundation hosts the event with the support of its founding partners, the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross.
