    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). This website is regularly updated. Last modification by Adminstrator (Manu Malbrain) on August 2nd 2018 at 10:00 AM.

Fluid Overload Revisited

Fluid Overload Revisited

Iatrogenic hemodilution: a possible source for avoidable transfusion? - A Perel

Learning Points

The quest for the optimal Hb threshold for RBC transfusion seems a never-ending journey

Using same threshold for all patients is imprecision medicine.

Restrictive v Liberal transfusion has been extensively researched but ideal thresholds for transfusion are not known.

Dilutional anaemia may be a more significant factor.

Iatrogenic haemodilution may paradoxically decrease the DO2 due to reduced carriage in oxygenated haemoglobin.

Meta-analysis of fluid overload - J Silversides

Learning Points

Does oedema associated with +ve fluid balance contribute to organ dysfunction and mortality? Seems to in ARDS and sepsis.

Positive fluid balance is preventable - comes from maintenance fluid and drug infusions. Both of which are modifiable.

Programme of research - SR, pilot RCT, multicentre RCT

RADAR-2 pilot RCT, n=180 in 5 NI sites - starting next year
