CHICAGO, IL--The American Heart Association awarded Clifton W. Callaway, MD, PhD, the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award in Cardiac Resuscitation Science at its Resuscitation Science Symposium 2018. The award recognizes leaders in the field of cardiac resuscitation science. Callaway, Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Emergency Medicine, studies resuscitation medicine with special emphasis on brain injury after cardiac arrest. He has developed a translational research program devoted to the topic of resuscitation from sudden death. Emphasizing the continuity of care during resuscitation, he has collaborated with prehospital care providers and emergency physicians to study acute cardiac interventions, developed a platform to study intensive care interventions, and worked with partners in rehabilitation to study long-term outcomes after cardiac arrest.
