Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Resuscitation science has advanced over the past decade, leading to improved outcomes for critically ill patients with severe acute respiratory or circulatory failure. However, despite these advancements, their outcomes remain poor. For example, the survival rates of patients with cardiac arrest are approximately 10% (varying from 0% to 18%), and even among survivors, many patients are discharged or transferred to other hospitals in a vegetative state or coma. Therefore, there is a need to develop better strategies for the management of such critically ill patients.

The objective of this Special Issue is to discuss knowledge gaps and research priorities in the field of resuscitation science, as well as to present potential novel treatment strategies that seek to improve their outcomes. The scope of this Special Issue intentionally encompasses a wide range of topics and perspectives related to resuscitation research.

This Special Issue focuses on any and all critically ill patients who need resuscitative interventions, such as those with severe acute respiratory or circulatory failure, requiring the support of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, or severe trauma, as well as patients experiencing cardiac arrest. Additionally, we seek to encompass studies related to training and education on resuscitative procedures. This broad scope takes in clinical and basic research, review articles, and case reports related to resuscitation science.
