    IFAD GOES SPAIN !!!

    9th International Fluid Academy Day - October 26th 2019 - Valencia, Spain

    Description

    A neglected topic for way too long, the interest in fluid therapy seems to be quickly rising as the medical community is making a shift from looking at fluids as a mere method of stabilization towards the appreciation of its relevant side effects.

    Many questions remain to be answered indeed:

    • Is the upgrade from saline 0.9% to balanced crystalloids worth the extra cost?
    • Does HES still have a place in the OR?
    • Do we have to fill the gap left by HES on ICU with crystalloids, other colloids or even albumin?
    • Is it really impossible to avoid fluid overload by using only crystalloids?
    • Is there still a definitive place for human albumin?
    • How do we treat and monitor specific patient populations, like patients with trauma, liver failure, brain edema and right heart failure among others?
    • How do we avoid a one-size-fits-all regimen in perioperative goal-directed therapy?
    • What with the fluids beyond resuscitation?
    • And what do the authors of the big fluid trials do in real life themselves?

    The 9th International Fluid Academy Day will again be a 1 day concise meeting on all aspects of fluid managament and hemodynamic monitoring in the critically ill.

Price: exceptionally low @ 250 EUR early bird (meals and drinks included)

Comment: This workshop can be booked either separately or in combination with attending the 40th Anniversary Academic ICU Symposium (Oct 12th 2019)

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 previously been accredited by the EACCME for 9 points. The course is inclusive of all course materials, food and drinks at the University Hospital Brussels, Auditorium Kiekens, Laarbeeklaan 101, 1090 Jette, 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.

Social Media coverage
The official Symplur hashtag of the meeting is #BEACH2019. Chair of SoMe team is Ms Marta Velia Antonini.
