Greetings from Medanta-Medicity, Gurugram, India!
Critical care is an integral part of Nephrology. The practice of Nephrology has changed much with the availability of bedside point of care ultrasound and now with the introduction of newer modalities of KRT, including hybrid therapies like SLED and CRRT, CARPEDIEM and others. However, these facilities are not available everywhere and expertise is often lacking. In many centres, often there are no pediatric and adult nephrologists to manage patients with AKI in ICU.
Keeping this in mind, we have decided to conduct this CME and Certificate Course on Critical Care Nephrology both for adults and pediatrics this time. The content will include state of art lectures on topics of practical importance like- KRT in ICU, Fluid management, biomarkers, use of inotropes in sepsis etc. Additionally, we would also have talks and discussions on the use of newer treatments for sepsis-like extracorporeal therapies in sepsis and ECMO therapy. We would also have hands-on workshops on CRRT, SLED, Peritoneal Dialysis, vascular access, and point of care ultrasound for adults and pediatric nephrologists.
We are fortunate to have renowned national and international faculty in adult and pediatric critical care, Nephrology which include- Dr Andrew Devenport from the UK, Dr Abhilash Koratala, Dr Jevier Neyra, Dr John Mahan, Dr Timothy Bunchman and Dr Rupesh Raina from the USA, Dr Mignon McCulloch from South Africa, Dr Martin Bitzan from Dubai, and Dr Yap from Singapore among others.
The conference would start on 3rd March Friday at 4 pm. The venue of the meeting will be Hotel Westin, Gurgaon. The next day, the venue would be Medanta-The Medicity Hospital, where we would have a couple of talks in the morning followed by workshops. The early bird registration charges are Rs- 6000 for the delegates and a discounted rate of Rs 3000 for students till 31st January 2023. You can visit our website www.picunephrologycourse.com for further details of the meeting.
We are sure, that this meeting would be very useful for both adults and pediatric nephrologists in this changing time.
Hope to meet you soon at the meeting!
