T3 AI and CDSS for AKI and RRT: Are We Ready?
Moderators: Nick Selby and Neesh Pannu
Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques are rapidly expanding and have provided new insights and opportunities to risk assess, detect and intervene in several conditions. However their application requires development of clinical decision support systems (CDSS) to improve prevention and management. This symposium will highlight the advances in the field and their application for AKI and RRT.

FR4 Neonatal CRRT: Building a Program with Carpediem
Moderators: Jolyn Morgan & Dr. Cara Slagle, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital
Content: With limited resources, building out a dedicated neonatal program with Carpediem might seem daunting. Why you should and how to practically achieve this is covered in our 90-min luncheon symposium on building out a dedicated neonatal CRRT program with Carpediem. Moderated by staff from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, this symposium will illustrate how to overcome realistic headwinds to build a foundation and take pragmatic steps to implementation. Space is limited to the first 30 attendees, so be sure to grab your spot to learn more about Carpediem, both practically and clinically.

FR5 AKI and Biomarkers:
Interesting Cases from the Bedside – And How this Could Make Me a Better Clinician

After briefly discussing the current AKI guidelines and management challenges, the practicalities of integrating novel biomarkers into AKI clinical assessment and diagnosis will be covered: who to test, when, and what to do once you have the result. Three cases of varying patient complexities will be used to provide tips from those more experienced implementing biomarkers at the bedside.
