SAN DIEGO — The Cardiac Arrest Survival Summit, December 7-10, 2021 in San Diego, unites leaders in resuscitation education and implementation to present the latest science, training and community response to help fire, EMS and law enforcement personnel save more lives from out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest.  

The Summit 2021 core program committee has curated a lineup of plenary and concurrent sessions, as well as workshops, to ensure attendees are equipped with the life-saving knowledge they need. 

“Wherever you are – or suddenly find yourself – on the chain of survival, you’ll find Summit 2021 sessions tailored to you,” Ed Racht, MD, chief medical officer, Global Medical Response and American Medical Response, and Summit 2021 program chair, said.
