Many questions remain to be answered indeed. What is the real impact of hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis induced by normal saline? What is the place of the colloids? What is the best colloid? Do the classic rules of thumb regarding their dosage limit and indication spectrum hold in modern times? Do we still need human albumin? What is the place of the hypertonics? How is the crystalloid vs colloid debate evolving? What will the future bring us? Can capillary leakage be treated with colloids instead of worsening it? What are the effects on the microcirculation?
And there's more! Since fluid overload is no longer seen as a cosmetic problem but as hazardous to many of our patients, a real challenge lies in the search for strategies to avoid this complication. Modern hemodynamic monitoring can help the clinician in finding thresholds to start and stop filling patients up. What is the place of the CVP and PCWP? Is there an advantage in the use of volume instead of pressure monitoring? Which technologies do we have available? What is the place of lactate? What is around the corner in non-invasive techniques?
The target audience for this day are all specialists caring for the critical patient: intensivists, anesthaesiologists, emergency physicians, internists, burn care specialists,...
The first International Fluid Academy Day was held on November 19th 2011 in Antwerp, Belgium and was a great success! A concise meeting report with summaries of the talks given by the 1st IFAD faculty is available on the website.
We hope you'll join us on this very inspiring day. Save the date!
