ICS Education: IV Fluids - turning the tide

ICS Education: IV Fluids - turning the tide
Understanding of fluid management has improved significantly over the last few years. Those of us who work in critical care are supposed to be experts in the field but much of the physiology and practical management we were taught in the past is just plain wrong. Join us to get updated in topics such as the glycocalyx, where fluid actually goes when you give it, the importance of venous congestion, and what 'goal directed therapy' should should actually be. Find out where we went wrong, make sure your practice is evidence based and find out how to implement changes in your hospital.
