Master course (integration and simulation) in Haemodynamics

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


Michelle CHEW MD, PhD, Professor Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine, Linköping University Hospital, Linköping, Sweden

Xavier MONNET MD, PhD, Professor of Intensive Care, Medical Intensive Care Unit, Bicêtre Hospital, Paris-Saclay University Hospitals, Paris, France; Chair Cardiovascular Dynamics Section, ESICM

Endorsement: The Course is endorsed by the Cardiovascular Dynamics Section, ESICM.

Welcome to Level 3. Master course (integration and simulation) in Haemodynamics.

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 an advanced level topics such as the effects of intra-abdominal pressure, hemodynamic effects of ARDS, fluid overload & restrictive fluid resuscitation, venous effects of norepinephrine, ECMO, HLI in ARDS, effects of PEEP, weaning-induced pulmonary oedema and much more.

An application will be made to the UEMS EACCME® for CME accreditation of this event.

  • Build upon your knowledge of cardiovascular haemodynamics and your personal experience at the bedside through interactive and white board lectures, workshops and video case analysis
  • Share knowledge with experts & peers and debate cases with common pathologies such as sepsis, post-operative haemodynamic instability, left- and right heart failure, trauma, pulmonary embolism
  • Get an overview of current haemodynamic treatments and monitoring technologies
  • Understand Frank Starling and Guyton physiology at the bedside
  • Filling Pressures: CVP and PAOP
  • Arterial Blood Pressure monitoring: non-invasive, invasive and pulse pressure analysis
  • Cardiac output monitoring: PAC and less invasive devices. Using CO monitors to improve tissue perfusion
  • Recognise shock and use of perfusion markers: lactate, SvO2, ScvO2, PCO2v-a difference
  • Heart-lung interaction and dynamic indices of preload
