Program Description:

Critical care practice & related pharmacotherapy encompasses a wide variety of disease states. New developments challenge the practitioner to stay abreast of emerging therapies & novel treatment strategies. This conference will focus on clinical controversies or novel therapies across the gamut of critical care medicine. We are excited to again partner with Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to continue to include a pediatric track this year and are thrilled to expand our audience to include critical care physicians. Joe Mull, M.Ed, CSP will deliver our keynote session entitled, “No More Team Drama: Ending the Gossip, Cliques, and Other Crap that Damages Workplace Teams.” Our clinical topics will highlight the “P’s of ARDS: Proning, Paralysis, and Pulmonary Vasodilators,” “Keep Cool: Targeted Temperature Management Nuisances in Practice,” “Fluid Management Controversies in Pediatric DKA,” “Vaping implications in the PICU,” among others hot topics. Additional conference activities will include hands-on education where participants will get to interact with multiple technologies surrounding volume-resuscitation and intravascular volume assessment in critically ill patients.
