The course starts with a good physiological ground and then it moves to bedside management.

It leverages innovative educational methodology combining keynotes, interactive lectures, PechaKucha sessions (short, snappy very visual and concise presentations of narrow, clearly defined topics) and whiteboard sessions used for explaining difficult topics and summarising PechaKucha sessions.

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