Join us in Amsterdam, this year, the end of November (23-24) for the 7th International Fluid Academy Days (iFAD), a concise 2-day symposium on fluid management and organ function monitoring in the critically ill.
"The best fluid is probably the one that has not been given (unnecessary) to the patient"
We are very pleased to announce the 7th International Fluid Academy Days (iFAD), which will take place on November 23-24th 2018 at the Pakhuis De Zwijger, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The iFAD is an innovative Critical Care Educational meeting in true SMACC spirit. This conference provides the highest quality of Critical Care education and is guaranteed to innovate and inspire. Recent advances in fluid management, and hemodynamic and organ function monitoring in the critical care setting will be reviewed in a comprehensive manner for intensivists, anaesthesiologists and emergency physicians as well as interested internists and surgeons.
