As with each ESICM Annual Congress, the scientific programme of LIVES 2012 boasts an array of specialised subjects from the field of intensive care and the sessions provide updated insight and data from experts in a variety of disciplines. However, this year, the lineup of our popular Hot Topics Session has jammed presentations and discussion of more highly anticipated trials in one exceptional session than ever before.

This session will mark the first presentation of several key studies from the field, with simultaneous publication of two articles in JAMA. Leading experts will delve into the following topics/study results:

  • Tight glycaemic control in children influences neurocognitive function after ICU
  • Daily sedation holidays vs. protocolised sedation: Any difference?
  • The PROSEVA trial: Effect of prone positioning in patients with severe and persistent ARDS.
  • Albumin for volume replacement in severe sepsis. The ALBIOS Trial.
  • Fluid resuscitation with 6% HES (130/0.4) vs. normal saline. The CHEST trial.
  • Standards of care and clinical outcomes for patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. The EuSOS study.
Be sure to mark your agenda for this groundbreaking session!
