Day 2: November 24, 2017

The first IFAD day will start on Nov 24th with a plenary session with lectures on Sepsis 3.0, critical care year in review and avoiding massive transfusion. Afterwards the day moves along in two parallel sessions with topics for intensivsits, anaesthetists or a broader audience. After lunch 6 master class satellite symposia will be organsied. Not to be missed is the hot topics session with presentation of IFA endorsed research (supported by unrestricted educational grants covering the fee for Open Access publication) within the FOAM philosophy. Before the first day plenary "Wrap It Up" closing session given by the fantastic SoMe (social media) team there will be a focus on the hypotensive shocked patient and the patient with fluid overload.
