This year the SAFAR symposium was a two-day event that celebrated the 50th anniversary of the development of CPR. The program, for the first time, included a Multi-Departmental Trainee's Research Day. It also included the traditional sessions on Resuscitation and Simulation, along with the 30th Peter & Eva Safar Lecture. WISER hosted the afternoon session of the Eighth Annual SAFAR symposium on June 2, 2010 which were simulation based as in years past. Also, as a service to the simulation community WISER arranged for a live web-cast of the afternoon sessions. The sessions ran from 2pm - 5:25pm. Individuals who took part in the web-cast were able to communicate by chat functionality in real-time with the moderators of the afternoon lectures.
