Haemodynamic Monitoring with Live Porcine Physiologic Models

Synopsis

The haemodynamic workshop is designed for doctors working in anaesthesia, emergency and critical care medicine taking care of haemodynamically unstable patients. The main objective is to equip participants with the knowledge in interpreting basic and advanced haemodynamic parameters like ScVO2, stroke volume variation and its limitations. Live animals will be used to demonstrate the changes in haemodynamic parameters for various shock states and response to pharmacological and physiological manoeuvres. Continuous haemodynamic parameters will be correlated with “live” echocardiographic examinations.
