    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.

Comment: This workshop can only be booked when attending the IFAD2017 meeting on Nov 24-25, 2017, at Hilton Congress Centre, Groenplaats, Antwerp, Belgium

Background: Definitions of sepsis and septic shock were last revised in 2001. Considerable advances have since been made into the pathobiology (changes in organ function, morphology, cell biology, biochemistry, immunology, and circulation), management, and epidemiology of sepsis, suggesting the need for reexamination. This formed the basis for the new Sepsis 3.0 definitions. Also recently the 4th update of the surviving sepsis campaign guidelines was published. For the first time parameters assessing fluid responsiveness were included and the CVP criterion was abandoned. However when adhering to the SSCG, every patient with sepsis regardless of his/her comorbidities should receive 30 ml/kg in the first 3 hours according to the SEP-1 mandate.

Learning objective: This workshop will outline the basic principles in the treatment of sepsis and septic shock that underlie the need for individualized and personalized care. This workshop will help to understand the mechanisms of sepsis and how to implement the guidelines at the bedside. In analogy to antibiotic stewardship you will learn about sepsis stewardship. In this workshop different aspects will be discussed: the new sepsis 3.0 definitions, the updated surviving sepsis campaign guidelines, the risk of bundles of care, hot topic: decatecholaminisation in sepsis, and the future of sepsis care, given by top speakers, each experts in their field.
