The International Conference on Advances in Critical Care Nephrology

The AKI & CRRT Conference will once again provide a comprehensive coverage of the rapidly developing field of Critical Care Nephrology and CRRT. It will highlight the recent advances in our understanding of pathophysiology of critical illness, acute kidney injury, emerging strategies in the management of sepsis, multiorgan failure, development and use of biomarkers, technical advances in CRRT and the appropriate utilization of these techniques. Our program presents exciting new developments and evidence for assessing critically ill patients, pathophysiology of liver dysfunction and AKI using a mix of invited lectures, interactive workshops, tutorials, poster sessions and panel discussions.
