• 7th IFAD 2018

    SPECIAL RATE  ONLINE REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

    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.

Physiological characteristics of Renal Circulation

  • Receives about 20% of CO, very active vasoregulation, very low oxygen consumption, but medulla very sensitive to hypoxia
  • Extremely adaptive to circulating blood volume (from 16 mL to 300 mL/hr); activation of neurohormonal system (RAAS, ADH) will decrease diuresis in response to low GFR
  • Even improvement in MAP with vasopressors may not improve renal function in setting of low blood volume

 

Detrimental effects of fluid therapy on renal function

 

Should we use diuretics EARLY during shock?

Oxygen delivery and consumption

SvO2 tells you there’s a problem with oxygenation, flow, carrying capacity, or consumption (not specific though)

 

Mixed vs central venous: not perfectly correlated, but decently so

 

If, ScVO2 is low; think CO, VO2, Hemoglobin, Oxygenation, Acidosis (Dissociation)

 

Monett

ETCO2 determinants: Alveolar ventilation, CO2 production, pulmonary blood flow

CO2 production:

  • Aerobic: adrenergic stimulation, fever, shivering, agitation, sepsis
  • R quotient: carbohydrate intake
  • Anaerobic: buffering of anions

 

Washout:

  • Increased minute ventilation
  • Cardiac output

 

**If CO2 production is constant, then changes in ETCO2 reflect ventilation or cardiac output

 

The relationship between changes in CO/ETCO2 are not linear at extremes of output

 

During CPR, can help monitor cardiac output/efficacy of CPR and help determine patient viability

 

Monitoring of ETCO2 as evidence of volume responsiveness during passive leg raising

 

Marik

“Humans are not yeast and rarely become anaerobic.”

 

Lactate does not cause acidosis; it consumes H+ and actually causes alkalosis

Lactate is not produced by tissue hypoxia (mountain climbers with paO2 of 24 and lactate)

Muscles create lactate to use as fuel for heart/brain during exercise (no evidence of tissue hypoxemia)

 

 

Supply dependency/critical oxygen delivery happens at CO of 1 - why do septic patients develop hyperlactemia? Hyperadrenergic: creates more pyruvate than can be processed by Krebs cycle

Thiamine is essential for processing of pyruvate

Lactate administration during stress is beneficial, and removing it may be detrimental
