IV fluid administration is one of the most common interventions in acute care, but it can be frequently mismanaged, thus we support ongoing education related to fluid stewardship, join us for a session on fluid stewardship
How to set up a sepsis and fluid guideline in your unit (Limited places during IFAD2023)
Despite the request from the WHO many countries do not have a national sepsis plan. Fluid prescribing has been shown to be associated with significant morbidity and mortality and many patients who receive intravenous fluids suffer iatrogenic harm. Now is time to do better!
Learning objective: 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.
More than 80% of hospitalized patients receive IV fluids. However, 1 in 5 patients may suffer complications or morbidity due to inappropriate administration of IV fluids.
Overview and objectives: The course will start by refreshing core topics in point of care ultrasound of the heart, lung and abdomen. Then we will quickly move towards hands-on sessions to put this in practice. The CACU programme is innovative to meet the needs of beginners and advanced practitioners. The CACU course offers a fantastic opportunity to meet and greet expert sonographers in a small interactive group. You will have a true VIP experience on the front seat where you will be able to improve your skills during the hands-on sessions and to test your knowledge during the interactive cases with voting.
