ESICM Lives Highlights 2018

ESICM LIVES Highlights

Bringing you the latest news and insights from 31st ESICM LIVES Congress | 20–24 October 2018 Paris, France |

The 31st annual European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) LIVES Congress taking place in Paris from the 20–24 October 2018, promises to be an exciting event with an international audience of over 6,000 attending physicians, covering the latest discoveries in intensive care medicine.

Join us as we discuss the latest insights from the ESICM LIVES Congress, including key data, in our series of highlights published each day from the Congress. Topics covered include weaning from mechanical ventilation, sepsis profiling, post thoracic surgery, delirium, and cardiac arrest.

  • Life after cardiac arrest: outcomes and challenges

    Return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) following cardiac arrest is often thought of as a great achievement, but what does life looks like for the patient following cardiac arrest? Read more to discover the impact cardiac arrest has on outcomes and some of the challenges faced during recovery.

  • Delirium: a confusing condition often missed

    The incidence of delirium within intensive care units (ICUs) is often high, but are physicians spotting the signs of the condition early enough? Read more to find out about novel delirium prevention, prediction, and assessment techniques being discussed at the 2018 ESICM LIVES Congress.

  • Cardiac surgery: what happens next?

    Assessing the potential risks of cardiac surgery is key to improving surgical and patient outcomes, yet post-operative complications remain a common occurrence, in particular atrial fibrillation, vasoplegia, and infections. But are physicians following prevention guidelines to minimise these risks? 

  • Sepsis: not one size fits all

    Sepsis remains a complex and critical condition to treat, but is there another way of identifying the condition and do subtypes exist? In this article we discuss the latest technology hoping to change the future of sepsis.

  • Mechanical ventilation 90 years’ on: when and how to wean

    Mechanical ventilation has existed for 90 years but returning patients to independent breathing remains a key issue in critical care. In this article we discover the challenges still faced and novel solutions for successful weaning.

  • Five Best Abstracts Awards

    These five award-winning abstracts are not to be missed. This year’s winning abstracts uncover new insights into mechanical weaning, cardiac arrest, antibiotics, vasopressors, and intensive care unit (ICU) pain.
