ESICM webinars have become a popular online tool to help members access the best and most up-to-date research and clinical practice information… AND an opportunity to interact with top experts from across the field of intensive care medicine!

Each month, one of our scientific sections organises a one-hour interactive session led by top experts, featuring a hot topic related to clinical practice.

All registered participants can submit questions during the live session.

We also offer interactive webinars from our two representative groups, N&AHP and NEXT, as well as industry partner supported sessions.

All sessions are recorded and are made available (approximately 5 days after each live session) for active ESICM members to access freely (24/7). Find these videos below.

ESICM Partners Webinar – Live debate


TPE, the ICU experience – Yes, you can!

This Live Debate Webinar will be an advanced teaching opportunity for critical care specialists and all those involved in acute care medicine.

Four ICU Specialists will provide a state of the art presentation about the management of critically ill patients with organ dysfunction requiring TPE. In addition to the level of evidence extracted from the literature and the experts’ experience, technical aspects will be presented in a way that allow clinicians at the bedside anticipate barriers to optimal and safe TPE. Last, lessons from patients recently managed with TPE will allow all attendees to prove their clinical skills.

The main objectives of this webinar are:
1/ To put forward that TPE is best performed in the ICU for several groups of patients;
2/ Using materials already available in our ICUs and skills learned with other technologies, every ICU specialist is able to provide TPE for those patients who have a clinical indication;
3/ TPE is a therapy that applies to many different conditions, but has specificities and criteria for success that depend on each single disease
