Highlights from the 2019 edition
A new edition of the Mechanical Ventilation – State of the Art 2019 Master Class has just has just wrapped up. A total of 10 experts and 50 participants from 21 countries came together for three days at the ESICM Training Centre in Brussels. Here are some of their comments on what they liked best about their experience:
- Extraordinary lecturers, interactive approach, our answers always discussed with further info from the experts and relevant supporting studies
- The experts, the workshops, white board sessions
- Small groups caffes, but I wish there was more time for each one
- I will make more use of the oesophageal pressure measurement available and I will discuss more bedside with my colleagues and ventilation practitioners next to the mechanical ventilator
- This event will influence my practice on use of driving pressure, time of prone positioning, better analysing ventilator curves, different methods of recruitment manouvers, maybe buying oesophageal catheter to measure oesophageal pressure
- More than one aspects to improve in my practice after this master class:) …Setting PEEP in ARDS but also in COPD patients; Use of driving pressure; More aggressive approach towards the patient recovering from ARDS with high tidal volumes (ie sedation instead of accepting high TV), while using P0,1 more often….

Highlights from the 2018 edition
The 5th edition of the Mechanical Ventilation – State of the Art 2018 Master Class was yet another success! A total of 7 experts and 39 participants from 14 countries came together for 3 days at the ESICM Training Centre in Brussels. Here are some of their comments on what they liked best about their experience:
“High standard talks and interaction with experts and colleagues.”
“I think the course provided a broad range of subjects, which eventually covered the entire topic of mechanical ventilation.”
“The faculty were extremely knowledgeable and experienced. It was especially informative when they focused on discussing their current clinical practices, as informed by an intimate knowledge of the evidence base.”
“The proximity with the experts and also being able to consolidate the teaching later on, at our own pace by having the lectures/audio.”
“The lectures, shared experience, clinical scenarios, clinical based discussions”
