Reanimatology: The Science of Resuscitation

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  28 June 2012


The time has come when it may be asserted quite categorically that a new medical science, the theoretical foundation of reanimation, has emerged on the medical scene. At the International Congress of Traumatology held in Budapest in 1961, I proposed to call this new science reanimatology. My suggestion was based on the medical tradition of using the Latin roots of words. I am pleased that not only this term but also its notion are being increasingly used by experts in the field.
