    IFAD GOES AMSTERDAM !!!

    November 23-24, 2018 @ Congress Centre "Pakhuis De Zwijger", Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    We are very pleased to announce the 7th International Fluid Academy Day, which will take place on November 23rd 2018 at Pakhuis De Zwijger in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (Faculty: Pietro Caironi, Maurizio Cecconi, Luciano Gattinoni, Robert Hahn, Monty Mythen,...). The aim of this seventh edition is again to review recent advances in fluid management, and hemodynamic and organ function monitoring in the critical care setting in a comprehensive manner for intensivists, anaesthesiologists and emergency physicians as well as interested internists and surgeons. However the meeting will deal with any broad topic related to critical care. As always it is also a great way to promote professional interaction between faculty members, participants and delegates of the industry. On November 24th post-IFAD courses will be organised: 5th CACU (Critical and Acute Care Ultrasound) course (Faculty: Adrian Wong, Daniel Lichtenstein, Jan Poelaert, Xavier Monnet, Pieter Tuinman...); 1st Acid-Base Masterclass (Faculty: Luciano Gattinoni, Pietro Caironi, Tom Langer, Paul Elbers, Niels Van Regenmortel,...) and 2nd ECMO hands-on cannulation course (Faculty: Dinis dos Reis Miranda).

Learning objective: This workshop will outline the basic principles of extracorporeal life support made easy by key-experts in the field. During the course delegates will gain a good understanding of ECMO in the following areas: Theoretical concepts, basic physiology and pathophysiology, cardiac and respiratory support and monitoring, alarm settings and monitoring, role of cardiac ultrasound during ECMO, newest technologies, circuits and devices, practical hands-on sessions and simulations.

Background: The BEACH programme provides a full-day, interactive course on Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) training. The course uses a variation of theoretical presentations, practical and simulation sessions presented by an international faculty. It is the only course in Belgium to be endorsed by the International Fluid Academy and has also been accredited by the EACCME for 9 points. The course is inclusive of all course materials, food and drinks at the Hilton Congress and Conference Centre, Groenplaats in Antwerp, Belgium. Delegates will have opportunity to meet, greet and ask questions regarding all topics presented.

Hands-on ECMO equipment training
Delegates will have the opportunity to have hands-on training in small break-out groups with ECMO equipment. Delegates will experience practicing insertion of cannulas on a mannekin, circuit surveillance, monitoring, alarm settings, simulations and trouble-shooting.

    Petition to retire the surviving sepsis campaign guidelines

    Fill in the petition. Guidelines that go beyond guidance and move to regimented, time-based prescriptions of care must be based on unassailable evidence. Even then, the clinician's assessment of the individual patient should allow a diversion from the guideline directed care.
