This 90-minute live webinar on Precision Therapies in ICU comprised three parts:
1. Precise Mechanical Ventilation (personalised lung protection and respiratory strategy): Mechanical ventilation is a lifesaving procedure, with its own risks, complications and side effects. Optimisation of mechanical ventilation parameters requires a precise strategy, since one size does not fit all.
Speaker: Prof Giacomo BELLANI, Dept of Medicine and Surgery, Università degli Studi Milano Bicocca, Monza, Italy
2. Precision Management of Nutrition (including indirect calorimetry and individual patient needs): Nutritional therapy is built on correct assessment of an individual patient. Correct dosing of artificial nutrition will avoid under- and over-feeding and reduce complications such as infections
Speaker: Prof Elisabeth DE WAELE, Director of Intensive Care Department, University Hospital (UZ), Brussels, Belgium
3. Analytics to support Precision Health (speaking about how Analytics and CIS can help to support a more individualized care plan): Routine intensive care data is an example of Big Data, due to its volume, rate of real-time acquisition, as well as its complex and varied mix of clinical, physiological, imaging and laboratory tests results.
Speaker: Prof Ari ERCOLE, University of Cambridge Division of Anaesthesia, Cambridge, United Kingdom
