Masterclasses

  • Don’t miss the opportunity to join one of the full day Pre-Meeting Masterclasses.
    These will be held prior to the start of the meeting on Tuesday, 15 June, 2020.
  • Space is limited, pre-registration and payment is required in order to secure your ticket. Registration will be open soon.

 

Pre-meeting Masterclasses

  1. Mechanical ventilation: basic and advanced
  2. Cardiovascular dynamics: Haemodynamics at the bedside
  3. Critical Care Nephrology: continuous renal replacement therapy
  4. Neurocritical care: neuromonitoring at the bedside
  5. Nursing Science & PICU/NICU nursing: Forging and leading collaborations to advance science and have impact & Getting started with your research

Mechanical ventilation: basic and advanced

During this interactive Masterclass, participants will learn about the basics of mechanical ventilation, how to interpret scalars and waveforms, indications for and the use of advanced respiratory monitoring (volumetric capnography, transpulmonary pressure measurements, assessing respiratory effort), how to set the ventilator for various types of lung pathology and how to use alternative modes of ventilation such as high-frequency oscillatory ventilation.

We will offer two tracks: a basic track targeting students, residents and fellows and an advanced track for professionals who are already familiar with the concepts of mechanical ventilation but want more in-depth training.

Cardiovascular dynamics: Haemodynamics at the bedside

During this interactive Masterclass, participants will learn about basic haemodynamic physiology and basic and advanced haemodynamic monitoring including point of care ultrasound technology. There will be breakout sessions including simulation scenarios and ECG interpretation for the intensivist.

Critical Care Nephrology: continuous renal replacement therapy

During this interactive Masterclass, participants get familiarized with with the basics of renal replacement therapy, experience hands-on-training using renal replacement machines and learn the practicalities of initiation and common problems during provision of continuous renal replacement therapy including plasmapheresis to critically ill children. We will also discuss real life complex cases requiring continuous renal replacement therapy.

Neurocritical care: neuromonitoring at the bedside

During this interactive Masterclass, participants will learn about the basic principles and physiology of neuro-monitoring modalities that are used in the intensive care unit. Participants get familiarized with the indications for neuro-monitoring including the pitfalls and challenges, and also how to interpret amongst others intracranial pressure monitoring waveforms, qEEG and NIRS monitoring in critically ill children.

Starting research and forging and leading collaborations to advance science and have impact (Nursing Science & PICU/NICU nursing)

During this interactive Masterclass, participants will learn about developing doctoral/post-doc nurse scientists’ knowledge and understanding of building and leading interdisciplinary impactful research. Participants acquire knowledge on developing novice nurse researchers knowledge and understanding of developing their research idea into a clear plan.
