COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS
We are strongly urging attendees to be vaccinated prior to arriving at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront so we can provide as safe a meeting as possible.

In California, unvaccinated persons continue to be required to wear masks in all indoor public settings. In light of review of the most recent CDC recommendations, to achieve universal masking in indoor public settings, we are recommending that fully vaccinated people also mask in indoor public settings. This adds an extra precautionary measure for all to reduce the transmission of COVID-19

In California, everyone must wear a mask on public transit (airports, planes, trains, buses, stations) and in healthcare settings, K-12 schools and childcare settings, correctional facilities, cooling centers, and shelters.

Everyone should take these precautions:

  • Please get tested for COVID-19 three days prior to your arrival.
  • Do not come to the event if you are sick or have tested positive for COVID-19.
  • Do not come to the event if you have been advised to quarantine or isolate by a health care provider or a public health official.
  • If you develop signs and symptoms of illness while at the event, please leave and seek medical assistance as appropriate.
  • Abide by the current mask guidelines.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Hand sanitizer and extra face coverings will be provided by organizers.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing.

PRE-CONFERENCE CRRT WORKSHOP
This elective workshop will take place on Sunday and Monday, March 6&7, 2022. Registration is available for an additional fee.

Practice Based Learning in CRRT: The Science and the Art
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.


PRE-CONFERENCE AKI SYMPOSIUM
This elective symposium will take place on Monday, March 7, 2022. Registration is available for an additional fee. You may register to attend only this Symposium without attending the full AKI & CRRT Conference.
sponsored by:
The UAB-UCSD O’Brien Core Center for Acute Kidney Injury Research

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.

MEET THE EXPERT
Seating is Limited. These elective breakfast sessions (choose from 2 on Tue., Wed. & Thur.) allow participants to meet and interact with internationally renowned experts in an informal roundtable session. This is an excellent opportunity to ask questions, learn how these experts manage patients, get guidance for projects and network. These sessions are available for an additional fee of $50.00.

INDUSTRY SESSIONS (Optional, Non-CME)
These optional sessions are presented by industry representatives to bring you the latest information from related organizations.

CONFERENCE LEARNER OBJECTIVES
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.
