This workshop is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and understanding for decision making for the effective utilization of CRRT to manage critically ill patients. The workshop will utilize case based discussions to illustrate the underlying concepts for application of CRRT. Delegates will participate in group exercises to apply their learning for the management of complex cases. At the end of this workshop participants will have an improved understanding of how to utilize CRRT for optimizing renal support. A quiz will be administered pre-and post-course for assessment.

Changing Paradigms in Acute Kidney Injury:
From Mechanisms to Management*

Acute Kidney Injury is a rapidly evolving area where several advances have been made in understanding the mechanisms and pathways of AKI and its effects on other organs. Recent identification of biomarkers has provided new tools and techniques to characterize this disorder. This pre-course workshop will provide a comprehensive review of the most recent developments in the field and describe emerging knowledge from basic and translational research. Results from clinical trials will be discussed to define the best strategies for effective management of patients and define the criteria for future studies.

*CRRT Conference Registration NOT Required for this symposium. A $30 discount will be given to attendees that register for the CRRT Conference. To receive the discount you must sign up for this workshop at the same time you register for the conference.

Limited to the first 30 delegates per session, includes breakfast. These sessions (choose from 2 on Tue., Wed., and Thu.) allow participants to meet and interact with internationally renowned experts in an informal setting over breakfast.

The AKI & CRRT conference provides a comprehensive review of advances in clinical care, research and technology in critical care medicine with a focus on the kidney and renal support techniques. The conference is designed to facilitate interdisciplinary interactions among caregivers involved in the management of patients in intensive care units. Physicians, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists and other allied personnel from industry have opportunities to learn from each other. The conference utilizes a combination of invited lectures; case based small group workshops, debates, hands on interactive and simulation based workshops. Attendees have an opportunity to interact with the faculty through focused panel discussions and symposia.

At the end of this conference attendees should be able to:

1. Describe the recent advances in the pathophysiology and management of critically ill
patients with a focus on sepsis, multi-organ failure, infections, lung and kidney injury in
different settings.
2. Discuss the best ways to identify, treat and follow up patients with acute kidney injury (AKI)
resulting from different causes utilizing biomarkers, imaging and lab studies and applying
educational tools to  raise awareness of AKI.
3. Describe the principles and practice of renal replacement techniques including CRRT, IHD
and plasma exchange and demonstrate how to setup and use these techniques for managing
critically ill patients.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of The University of California San Diego School of Medicine and CRRT, Inc.
