EVENTO CONCLUSO - 39th Vicenza Course on AKI & CRRT - virtual meeting

39th Vicenza Course on AKI & CRRT - virtual meeting


26 October 2021
26 - 29 OCTOBER

The pandemic emergency called Covid-19 (Sars-Cov-2) continues to impose measures of prevention that include social distancing, limitation of international travels and conferences where crowding would be inevitable. For this reason, the organizing committee of the Vicenza AKI and CRRT conference 2021 has decided, in collaboration with the scientific committee, to maintain also for the 2021 edition the fully virtual modality. As last year, the special web-based platform has been further improved to ensure the perfect fruition of the scientific program, and the possibility to follow the presentations by the registered guests also a few months after the event on our educational IRRIV web site. The course will be distributed over 4 days in which the time of scientific webinars and controversies will cover the selected topics in a series of sessions for a duration of 3-4 hours/day. The webinars contain a compendium of current knowledge on Critical Care Nephrology and cover two main topics: 1) Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) describing the epidemiology, pathophysiology, mechanism, prevention and diagnosis through biomarkers and action strategies in different settings such as cardiac surgery, intensive care unit, cardiology, nephrology and sepsis. 2) Continuous Renal Replacement Therapies (CRRT) describing indications, modalities, prescription and delivery, different techniques and clinical results. Special emphasis will be given to conditions of kidney damage/dysfunction, sepsis, fluid overload and settings such as oncology, cardiology and cardiac surgery, trauma and sepsis, and finally septic shock. The new sorbents, membranes, machines and therapies available in this field are presented as well as new treatment strategies and recent trials in the field.  Finally, a section will be dedicated to the SARS-Cov-2 pandemic and the consequences in intensive care and nephrology. A series of lectures and panel discussions will be delivered during the days of the course. Our task is to put together specialists from different disciplines in a single scientific event with a multidisciplinary approach to the critically ill patient with acute kidney injury and multiple organ dysfunction. Recordings containing most of the material presented at the course will be accessible for a month to participants in order to perpetuate the educational message of the course and enable those who could not take part in any of the sessions, to follow and learn off line. For 38 years we have been a cornerstone in education and science in the field of critical care nephrology and we tried to make an important effort for a better patient care. Companies and Members from the industry of the field are invited to join the event reserving Virtual booths and scientific spaces in between the program scientific sessions, providing additional information in areas and topics of their choice. This is a unique event in 2021 and it will serve as a pillar for knowledge and education in the fields of AKI, CRRT and Critical Care Nephrology. Claudio Ronco
