5th Annual Conference
Doubling Cardiac Arrest
June 5, 2020
Western Michigan University
“The future of resuscitation medicine and the role of advanced perfusion and reperfusion therapies in refractory out of hospital cardiac arrest”
Dr. Yannopoulos has published more than 110 articles and many book chapters on the field of resuscitation. He has received funding from the NIH to evaluate methods to improve neurological outcomes after prolonged untreated arrest. He is the recipient of the NIH Director’s Transformative Research Award which evaluates ways to mitigate reperfusion injury after cardiac arrest.
Dr. Yannopoulos is the PI of the ACCESS trial, a phase III, multicenter US trial that assesses the effect of early access to cardiac catheterization on survival to hospital discharge for patients resuscitated after VF OHCA. Dr. Yannopoulos, in the collaboration of the Twin Cities EMS directors, has established the first ECMO-based resuscitation protocol in the US for refractory VF OHCA patients.
With the support of the Helmsley Charitable Trust, he is currently and actively assessing ways to implement prehospital circulatory support for cardiac arrest victims and transform prehospital care for extremely time critical interventions.
