Dear Fellow Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Society for Emergency Medicine in Singapore (SEMS), Resuscitation Council of Asia (RCA) and SingHealth, we are honoured to invite you to our SEMS Annual Scientific Meeting / International Resuscitation Science Symposium (SEMS I-ReSS) of 2016, which will be held on the 27th and 28th of February 2016, at The Academia at Singapore General Hospital.

With the hosting of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) on the 25th and 26th February 2016 in Singapore for their annual Business and Taskforce meetings, we will also be organizing the SEMS I-ReSS – the first international gathering of global and regional experts in Resuscitation Science following the publication of the CoSTR, outside of US and Europe.

ILCOR was founded in 1992 to provide a global forum for discussion and coordination among principal Resuscitation Organisations, such as the American Heart Association, the European Resuscitation Council, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (HSFC), Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation, Resuscitation Councils of Southern Africa, Inter-American Heart Foundation and the Resuscitation Council of Asia. ILCOR will be publishing a new International Consensus on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiac Care (ECC) Science and Treatment Recommendations (CoSTR) in October 2015. 

The focus of this year’s conference is on Resuscitation. We have put together an exciting program that will explore themes beginning from Pre-hospital Medicine, to Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support, as well as Emergency Cardiac Care and Post Resuscitation Care. Our program highlights include:

  • Pre- & post-conference workshops: Advanced ECG, ECMO CPR, Emergency Airway Management, EMS, HAZMAT Medical Life Support, Paediatrics Simulation, Transport Medicine, and Ultrasound Life Support Course
  • Lecture series from leading clinicians / researchers on resuscitation: Dr Richard Aickin, Prof Clifton Callaway, Prof Julie Considine, Prof Maaret Castrén, Dr Allan deCaen, Prof Judith Finn, Dr Erkan Göksu, Prof Karl Kern, Dr Efraim Kramer, Dr Ian Maconochie, Prof Koen Monsieurs, A/Prof Peter Morley, Dr Brian McNally, Prof Vinay Nadkarni, Prof Robert Neumar, Dr Jerry Nolan, A/Prof Michael Parr, Prof Gavin Perkins, Prof Tetsuya Sakamoto, Dr Axel Siu, A/Prof Andrew Travers, Prof Wang Tzong-Luen
  • Lectures on Emergency Medicine topics by leading local physicians: Austere Medicine, Disaster Medicine, Emergency Cardiac Care, Emergency Nursing, Medical Education, Paediatrics, Palliative Medicine, Pre-hospital Medicine and Trauma Care
  • Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Interhospital SIMGames: The annual simulation-based challenges are back with attractive prizes and trophies up for grabs!
In conclusion, SEMS I-ReSS 2016 hopes to be a global platform where our international colleagues, the local medical community, our nurses and allied health professionals, paramedics and medical students can meet and share our ideas, experiences and teachings on the Art of Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine, and have fun while doing so.
