Master course (integration and simulation) in Acute Respiratory Failure and Mechanical Ventilation

Format: Pre-congress course, LIVES 2023 (Milan, Italy)
Dates: 21-22 October 2023

Directors:

Leo HEUNKS MD, PhD Professor, Pneumologist-intensivist, Department of Intensive Care, Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Lise PIQUILLOUD MD, Associate Physician, PD-MER, Intensive Medicine Service- BH 05, Lausanne, Switzerland; Past-chair ARF section ESICM

Endorsement: The course is endorsed by the Acute Respiratory Failure Section, ESICM.

Welcome to Level 3. Master course (integration and simulation) in Acute Respiratory Failure and Mechanical Ventilation.

The novelty for 2023 is the progressive approach for better integration of what is being learnt, offering our participants the possibility to choose based on their needs, skill and aims. The Master Course will integrate at advanced level topics such as respiratory physiology in special circumstances: Obesity, COPD, ARDS, pregnancy, acute brain injury, refractory hypoxaemia and physiology of gas exchange during ECMO, tracheostomy care, imaging in respiratory failure (CxR – CT) and much more.

Join us for a competence based face to face event planned for October 2023, Milan.
