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


Blood purification in Sepsis: Are we ready for it?

Blood purification filters as a treatment option for sepsis patients make a lot of sense, to remove endotoxin and sepsis mediators in high amounts….but should we do this?

Increased levels of both endotoxin and cytokines are associated with the development of organ dysfunction and impaired outcome in septic shock patients.
Pharmacological interventions aimed to inhibit endotoxin-mediated effects or to attenuate the inflammatory response have not shown a clinical benefit in patients, possibly because very specific pathways are targeted and efficacy might be bypassed by other pathways.
Therefore, a more unspecific approach may be more effective. Several filters are now commercially available that can capture endotoxin (e.g. the polymyxin B filter), cytokine (e.g. the Cytosorb-filter), or both (e.g. the oXiris-filter).

During this 90-minute Live Debate Webinar, our expert panel will discuss the (interpretation of) currently available data, the practical consequences at the moment, and what data is needed.
