The London Cardiac Arrest Symposium 2022 - Tuesday 6th December 2022


This symposium, Chaired by Professor Jerry Nolan, Past ERC Chair and Editor in Chief of Resuscitation, 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.
