Advanced Bedside Monitoring in ARF

Dates: 22-23 October 2022

Format: on-site, at LIVES 2022 Paris

Max number of participants: 60

Course Director:

Luigi CAMPOROTA MD PhD FRCP FFICM, Consultant Intensivist at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, London, Greater London, United Kingdom

This course will bring you new insights into respiratory mechanics, waveform interpretations, oesophagal pressure, ultrasound & EIT.

Participants will experience a progressive immersion in the content, active learning techniques and a variety of instructional strategies from interactive lectures and round tables with open debates on specific topics, to clinical study workshops and hands-on.

An application has been made to the UEMS EACCME® for CME accreditation of this event.

  • Up-to-date discussions on the hottest clinical topics on bedside monitoring
  • Sessions focusing on respiratory mechanics, waveforms interpretations, oesophageal pressure, ultrasound and hemodynamic, diaphragm monitoring, EIT and during high flow
  • Practical approach with lots of hands-on
  • Lots of opportunities to interact and share experiences among participants and with the team of international experts that will be facilitating the course
  • Understand respiratory mechanics & patient-ventilator interaction
  • Understand indications and rationale for advanced respiratory monitoring
  • Recognise the patient-ventilator asynchronies using waveforms, discuss the mechanism for each asynchrony and the methods to improve synchronisation
  • Learn how to optimise  lung protective ventilation settings, patient-ventilator synchrony, and patient effort
  • How to interpret flow, oesophageal- and gastric pressure and EAdi measurements in patients performing a weaning trial (determine PEEPi, PTP, WOB)
  • Understand the principles of EIT, its different clinical applications and its use as guidance for mechanical ventilation.
  • Rationale for advanced monitoring in acute respiratory failure
  • Respiratory mechanics, waveforms interpretations & EIT
  • Asynchronies
  • Difficult weaning
  • Oesophageal pressure: placement, verification & applications (in sedated patients & spontaneous breathing patients)
  • Lung and diaphragm ultrasound method & application
  • Clinical applications of monitoring
  • Junior intensivists seeking for a thorough approach in the bedside monitoring
  • Senior intensivists wanting a comprehensive refresher training programme
