    9th International Fluid Academy Day - October 26th 2019 - Valencia, Spain

    Description

    A neglected topic for way too long, the interest in fluid therapy seems to be quickly rising as the medical community is making a shift from looking at fluids as a mere method of stabilization towards the appreciation of its relevant side effects.

    Many questions remain to be answered indeed:

    • Is the upgrade from saline 0.9% to balanced crystalloids worth the extra cost?
    • Does HES still have a place in the OR?
    • Do we have to fill the gap left by HES on ICU with crystalloids, other colloids or even albumin?
    • Is it really impossible to avoid fluid overload by using only crystalloids?
    • Is there still a definitive place for human albumin?
    • How do we treat and monitor specific patient populations, like patients with trauma, liver failure, brain edema and right heart failure among others?
    • How do we avoid a one-size-fits-all regimen in perioperative goal-directed therapy?
    • What with the fluids beyond resuscitation?
    • And what do the authors of the big fluid trials do in real life themselves?

    The 9th International Fluid Academy Day will again be a 1 day concise meeting on all aspects of fluid managament and hemodynamic monitoring in the critically ill.

    Date: October 26th 2019, 8:00 - 18:00

Petition to retire the surviving sepsis campaign guidelines

Petition to retire the surviving sepsis campaign guidelines

We need a paradigm shift in the way we develop guidance and treat our sepsis patients

Fill in the petition. Guidelines that go beyond guidance and move to regimented, time-based prescriptions of care must be based on unassailable evidence. Even then, the clinician's assessment of the individual patient should allow a diversion from the guideline directed care.

    Over the last decades we have used aggressive fluid resuscitation as a cornerstone in the treatment of shock, however, with only little evidence to support this. Early venconstriction may avoid fluid overload.
