Conference Summary

8th Annual Therapeutic Hypothermia And Temperature Management: Current And Future Directions is organized by University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine Division of Continuing Medical Education and will be held during Mar 15 - 16, 2018 at Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay, Miami, Florida, United States of America.

The target audience for this medical event is physicians, researchers, nurses, technologists in the areas of acute care, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrest, ICU, stroke, and trauma. It will also be of interest to surgeons and other physicians, residents, nurses and allied healthcare professionals. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 14.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Conference Description :
The importance of temperature management and therapeutic hypothermia has been a subject of ongoing experimental and clinical investigations in different fields of patient care. While mild to moderate levels of hypothermia protect and promote functional outcome in experimental and clinical studies, mild levels of hyperthermia may worsen outcome in some patient populations. Although there has been some success in translating positive results from the bench to the bedside, there is a need to continue to discuss with leading thought leaders when therapeutic hypothermia may be most appropriate to utilize in a patient population and under what conditions would temperature management be recommended.

The purpose of this meeting “Therapeutic Hypothermia and Temperature Management: Current and Future Directions” will be to gather leading scientists and clinicians in the field of therapeutic hypothermia and temperature management. A series of lectures by authorities in this field, as well as roundtable discussions, will be organized around a two-day meeting, allowing attendees interested in this topic to discuss the various obstacles that are ahead as temperature is utilized as a treatment paradigm in clinical situations.

Conference Objectives are :
Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:
• Assess the importance of therapeutic hypothermia in post cardiac arrest
• Analyze different approaches to individualize temperature management in patients with hematomas and ICP control in patients with diffuse brain injury
• Evaluate intravascular cooling techniques with minimal variation in body temperature
• Evaluate the effectiveness of intraoperative temperature management

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
