【DE】Symposium Intensive Care Medicine + Intensive Care: Topic Tips

Dear colleagues,

Whether interactive TED sessions, panel discussions, multi-professional lectures, meetings with a focus on COVID-19, emergencies in emergency services or obstetrics: As always, the range of topics of the symposium Intensive Care Medicine + Intensive Care at MESSE BREMEN and the Congress Centrum Bremen (CCB) is diverse. Also at the 33rd Edition from Wednesday to Friday, 15th to 17th February 2023, the participants deal with many aspects of intensive care medicine and care, anesthesia and emergency medicine as well as hospital management. The approximately 160 sessions and workshops deal with current topics, new findings and effects of the pandemic on everyday hospital life.

Here is a selection of exciting topics that might interest you in your reporting:

  • Pflexit, the exodus of employees from the nursing industry, is on everyone’s lips. According to a study of an online job market (end of 2021), a quarter of respondents want to get out of work. Especially among younger people up to the age of 34, the frustration is so great that they want to turn their backs on the industry (despite safe jobs). The reason: too high workload and compaction, unattractive pay and a bad care key. But the Federal Statistical Office (May 2022) comes to a completely different conclusion for the entire republic: In hospitals, the number of nurses increased by 18 percent between 2010 and 2020. What’s the point of Pflexit? Does it exist or not? In the panel discussion “Pflexit considered differentiated”, among other things, Dr. Michael Isfort from the German Institute for Applied Nursing Research on the current state of the industry. (Wednesday, 15. February, 12.15 p.m. to 1.45 p.m., Hall 6, Room 6)
  • Sterile disposable products meet the highest quality standards in everyday hospital life and offer the highest level of safety and hygiene, but also produce waste. According to the Deutsche Ärzteblatt, hospitals are the fifth largest waste producer in Germany with seven to eight tons of waste per day. This means that on average, about six kilos per patient are produced per day. For comparison: The ordinary citizen brings it to 1.7 kilos – and this is already a peak in Europe, according to the trade journal. Whether the medical industry commits environmental sins and needs to do more for sustainability is the topic of the round “Medical Ethics and Climate Ethics – a common assessment”. (Friday, 17. February, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., Hall 6, Room 6)
  • If your own lungs fail, ECMO is the last chance for many patients. However, around three quarters of people over the age of 60 in Germany do not survive treatment with the artificial lungs – this is significantly more than in international comparison. This is the conclusion of a team from the University Hospital Frankfurt in a study (February 2022), which has been published in the specialist magazine European Journal of Anaesthesiology. What is lacking? Experts say about the experience. At the meeting “Innovations of respiratory therapy in intensive care medicine”, among other things, Prof. Dr. Peter Spieth from the University Hospital Dresden, which structures must be created from ventilation to the ECMO program. (Wednesday, 15. February, 10.15 am to 11.15 am, Hall 6, Room 6)
  • Another hot topic is the DRG system. A government commission is working on cornerstones of hospital reform, which will be important for pediatrics, obstetrics and day-hospital treatment. Experts already expect the first effects on intensive care medicine, which will be discussed in the hot topic session “Is our hospital system facing change? – Opportunities and dangers for intensive care and intensive care”. (Thursday, 16. February, 08.15 a.m. to 10.15 a.m., CCB, Kaisen Room)
  • No symposium without “Lewandowski’s Magic Mystery Lectures”: On the initiative of Prof. Dr. Klaus Lewandowski from Berlin focuses on the symposium “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, the horror novel by the Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson. Actress Mechthild Großmann, prosecutor in the “Münster” crime scene, reads novel passages. An interdisciplinary team of speakers accompanies the reading scientifically, solves medical-scientific puzzles raised in the novella and promotes philosophical, ethical-moral and criminal questions. (Wednesday, 15. February, 4.45 p.m. to 6.45 p.m., CCB, Kaisen Room)
  • How would you have decided? Whether difficult ventilation cases in intensive care medicine or the special case in anesthesia, emergency medicine or intensive care: At the popular TED sessions, participants have the opportunity to interactively discuss and coordinate difficult and extraordinary cases from everyday hospital life. (The dates of the individual TED sessions can be found in the program on the website.)
  • Another highlight of the symposium is the format “International Medical Class” of the independent and non-profit RobinAid Foundation. It is mainly committed to the medical care of children living in developing countries and regions affected by poverty and crises. A wide range of topics are covered under the title “Global Critical Care 2023.” In the “The pandemic is not over” session, the experts report on the characteristics and courses of children with COVID-19 infection as well as on special aspects of COVID-19 infections in newborns and infants. The sessions are offered bilingually with direct connections to the projects on site. (Friday, 17. February, 12 noon to 2 p.m., group room 3). The complete program of the “International Medical Class” with the individual dates can be found on the website.
  • Corona has more or less let the lives and everyday life of many trainees and students get out of hand – also in medicine. Practical instruction on patients is essential for prospective intensive care nurses and physicians. Virtual teaching and testing cannot replace clinical classroom teaching at the bedside – or can they? The session “Teaching, education and training in times of the pandemic – and teaching for “after”” sheds light on digital education and training as part of the DigiPal project, a national learning platform with virtual patients. The modernization of medical education, including interprofessionalism, as well as training and further education in nursing will also be an issue. (Friday, 17. February, 10.15 am to 11.15 am, Hall 6, Room 6)
  • According to the campaign “Germany recognizes sepsis” funded by the Federal Ministry of Health, a person dies of blood poisoning every seven minutes in Germany. With approx. 75,000 recorded deaths annually, sepsis is the third most common cause of death in this country after cardiovascular disease and cancer. Therefore, it is once again a key topic of the symposium. The experts highlight blood poisoning in patients with a heart defect, kidney weakness, coagulation disorder, and pregnancy. (Thursday, 16. February, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., CCB, Kaisen room).
