We are pleased to announce that on the 30th of November at 4:30pm, SMART (Smart Meeting Anesthesia Resuscitation Intensive Care) with ESTOR support, organizes a webinar on minimally invasive CO2 removal.

International and well-renowned speakers in ECMO and ECCO2R such as Prof. Gattinoni (Universitätsmedizin Göttingen) and Dr. Hilty (Hospital of Zürich), will participate in this online session which will be held in English.

During this webinar, the potential of minimally invasive extracorporeal CO2 removal (LF-ECCO2-R) in supporting protective ventilation and reducing ventilation burden will be analised. Starting from concepts of respiratory pathophysiology, the speakers will discuss which can be differences occurring in the lung in various clinical contexts such as ARDS and COVID-19, trying to identify the best patient-tailored ventilatory strategies. The rationale and potential for a well-designed extracorporeal CO2 removal system for the management of patient’s ventilatory support will then be analyzed in order to support the best setting for preventing ventilator- induced lung injury (VILI) by reducing mechanical power. Clinical experiences of applying the minimally invasive CO2 removal system in different contexts of Acute Respiratory Failure will be analyzed and discussed. Finally, they will reflect and discuss commonly accepted definitions like ARDS and general management flowcharts, including COVID-19 clinical context.
