This inter-continental gathering has very quickly become a major event on the intensivist’s calendar, attracting delegates from all over Asia and Europe. Our decision to rotate the locations of our EuroAsia events means we are able to reach out to more and more physicians, nurses and allied health practitioners, from Asia and beyond. This year EuroAsia 2020 will be held in the fascinating city of Taipei. In collaboration with our colleagues from the Taiwan Society of Critical Care Medicine (TSCCM), Taiwan Society of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine (TSECCM), and other Asian Societies involved in Intensive Care Medicine, we have put together an innovative and comprehensive programme for professionals who are united in caring for lives.
This three-day conference from April 6-8 in Hong Kong drew more than 450 delegates from 48 countries. The extensive programme developed together with our Asian Society partners offered participants opportunities to attend interactive Post Graduate courses covering the key areas of respiratory failure and organ interaction; AKI and RRT; haemodynamics, and key issues in septic shock management. They also participated in case-based discussions with international experts and discover brand new research presented for the first time.
On Saturday, authors of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign Massimo Antonelli, Daniel De Backer and Jean-Louis Vincent hosted a special LIVE online session featuring a case-based discussion on the new guidelines. On site participants enjoyed a unique opportunity to ask questions and delve into key clinical points on implementing the guidelines at the bedside. A number of industry partners were also on hand to provide information on their newest innovative products.
ESICM would like to thank all delegates and faculty members, as well as society and industry partners for their active participation in this event!
EuroAsia 2018 was our second conference outside Europe and drew an audience of over 400 delegates from 47 different countries. The scientific programme was designed in close collaboration with national intensive care societies across Asia and included interactive master classes, case-based discussions with international experts, brand new research and networking events.
Almost 600 international intensivists came together from 39 different countries. The extensive scientific programme - developed with our Asian Society partners - covered a diverse range of interactive and topical half-day courses, including Mechanical Ventilation, Sepsis Management, Extracorporeal Life Support (ECLS) and Haemodynamic Monitoring. The 151 abstracts and e-poster presentations stimulated ideas and data from both European and Asian perspectives. Along with the latest products and services demonstrated by our industry partners, EuroAsia has once again provided a memorable fusion of intensive care practices, science, research and innovation
