This symposium gathers international experts and provides comprehensive coverage of topical and controversial areas related to cardiac arrest. It will be of interest to a broad range of clinicians who know the basics but want highlevel knowledge and interaction with experts who are at the cutting edge of current practice and research.

The London Cardiac Arrest Symposium will explore key areas of cardiac arrest management at a high level and has speakers from seven countries. The day will start with a session devoted to drowning. After hearing about an amazing resuscitation story of multiple drowned teenagers we will hear about the physiology and management of drowning and then the use of ECMO in treatment. Experts will examine the utility of newer interventions including REBOA, ECPR, new technologies and pupillometry. Management dilemmas will be explored and include termination of CPR pre-hospital, post resuscitation care from the perspective of ICU and the cardiologist. Recent research will inform a presentation on airway management in cardiac arrest and a debate on the use of Epinephrine. This years keynote lecture will be delivered by Professor Laurie Morrison from Canada.
