Funding Acknowledgements

The authors would like to thank the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (ACVECC) and the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society for their financial and scientific support, as well as Armelle deLaforcade, the ACVECC Executive Secretary and Kathleen Liard, ACVECC Staff Assistant for their administrative and organizational support. This work would have been impossible without the tireless efforts of the worksheet authors in the 5 RECOVER domains. Their contribution to this product can not be overstated, and their dedication to this challenging task serves as an inspiration to the veterinary profession. Furthermore, the domain chairs that guided these worksheets authors deserve great credit. The domains were chaired by Drs. Maureen McMichael (Preparedness and Prevention), Kate Hopper (BLS), Elizabeth Rozanski and John Rush (ALS), Benjamin Brainard (Monitoring), and Sean Smarick and Steve Haskins (PCA care). Also, we would like to thank the RECOVER Advisory Board for their guidance and invaluable input during the planning and execution of this initiative: Dennis Burkett, ACVECC Past-President; Gary Stamp, VECCS Executive Director; Dan Chan, JVECC Liaison; Elisa Mazaferro, Private Practice Liaison; Vinay Nadkarni, ILCOR Liaison; Erika Pratt, Industry Liaison; Andrea Steele, AVECCT Liaison; Janet Olson, Animal Rescue Liaison; Joris Robben, EVECCS Past-President; Kenneth Drobatz, ACVECC Expert; William W. Muir, ACVECC and ACVA Expert; Erik Hofmeister, ACVA Expert. We would also like to extend special thanks to Dr. Joris Robben for graciously moderating the RECOVER session at IVECCS 2011. Finally, we would like to thank the many members of the veterinary community who provided input on the RECOVER guidelines at the IVECCS 2011 session and during the open comment period via the RECOVER web site.
