Asia Pacific Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) Course
The course is designed for general neurosurgeons taking care of the growing number of patients with NPH and also for the experienced hydrocephalus specialist who wants to gain advanced knowledge and discuss sophisticated hydrocephalus issues.
Home Parenteral Nutrition
Home parenteral nutrition has become a life-saving cornerstone of therapy for patients with a short bowel, and for those with surgically untreatable intestinal obstruction and severe dysmotility disorders. Following the successful workshops held in conjunction with the prestigious Universities of Warsaw (in 2010), London (2011), Bologna (2012) and Prague last year, we are delighted to be able to invite you to participate in the fifth meeting which will be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The aim of this annual meeting is to update dedicated professionals on the latest achievements in HPN as well as to address the science and particularly the clinical practice associated with successfully establishing and maintaining patients on home parenteral nutrition. The meeting will be suitable for all those working with or hoping to work with patients on home parenteral nutrition and will be accessible not only to doctors but also to pharmacists, nurses, and dieticians. This year’s meeting will also include a focus on problems in children so paediatricians are particularly welcome.
3rd ESPEN LLL Course
A two-day program designed to strengthen the physician's knowledge on Specialized Nutrition Support (SNS), especially about clinical nutrition, and help them develop expertise in the provision of SNS. The course taps into the latest scientific knowledge through a combination of lectures and case presentations.
2nd European Advanced Fluid Therapy Conference
Intravenous fluid therapy is essential for the management of hospitalized patients in medical as well as surgical wards.
In perioperative care and intensive care fluid management is critically influencing patient’s morbidity and mortality.
Fluids are Drugs, so basic knowledge about physiology of fluid homeostasis, precise monitoring of fluid balance, accurate documentation and evaluation of fluid therapy are fundamental elements of good clinical practice. But in the everyday activity we still face the problem of inappropriate
fluids application and the deleterious consequences of hypovolemia or overhydration. Therefore, training in
fluid therapy is a basic task for medical education. The Conference of Aesculap Academy in Kraków creates a very good opportunity to reappraise our understanding of fluid
management and to discuss all new and controversial topics related to this particular area of therapy.
Chairman of the Conference
Prof. Andrzej Kuebler
Workshop Implantation Techniques for Venous Access Ports
Following the successful first edition of our international workshop on Implantation Techniques of Vascular Access Devices, we are delighted to invite you to actively participate in our second international course. In this multidisciplinary multi-professional course, you will share knowledge during several interactive courses on ultrasound principles, implantation techniques and perioperative guidance for catheter tip location with IEG. Moreover you will be offered the opportunity to perform yourself vascular assessment in vivo and echo-guided punctures in vitro. You will also get a chance to see some live procedures of catheter implantations, directly transmitted from the OT. Care and maintenance for the devices will be discussed as well as postoperative complications during the lifetime of the port.
