Short Description

We have previously organized ERA-EDTA supported CME courses at the Institute of

Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering (IBBE) in Warsaw on “Kinetic Modelling

and Adequacy of Dialysis” which included fluid management. We are now shifting the

focus from solutes to fluid management, which by many is seen as equally or even

more important as it poses more complex problems than solute status and removal,

not least when it comes to assessment of “dry weight”. Another change is that the

course is now more clinically oriented.

Therefore we changed the name of the course to "Management of fluid overload in

dialysis patients". This course will focus on assessment of fluid status and methods

for fluid removal in dialysis, and kinetic modelling of fluid removal in dialysis. It

targets above all younger physicians, nephrologists or physicians in training to

become nephrologists, but –space allowing - other attendees including non-MD

researchers and nurses will also be welcome.

The main aim is to provide up-to date knowledge and new insights into the complex

problem of how to assess, monitor and maintain adequate fluid status in

maintenance dialysis patients. Specific questions related to each of the specific

dialysis modalities (hemodialysis, hemofiltration, peritoneal dialysis) are reviewed

and discussed. The attention is focused on the optimisation of fluid removal by

dialysis and the mechanisms of fluid transport in the body during dialysis

In addition, for the sake of completeness, fluid management in pre-dialys ESRD,

acute kidney injury and heart failure patients will also be discussed briefly, as

nephrologists also take care of these patients.

Following two optional (not mandatory) pre-course introductory lectures (optional) on

the basis of mathematical modelling in dialysis - for those who are especially

interested in this topic - the main part of the program has a strong clinical emphasis.

But in addition it will also contain lectures on the appropriate quantitative

assessment, and kinetic modelling, of fluid status and fluid removal by dialysis.

Lectures will not hide the fact that many factors other than dialytic fluid removal are

important to consider in order to maintain euvolemia in dialysis patients. This will be

addressed in the opening general talk and in lectures throughout the program.

Venue: The course venue, International Center of Biocybernetics, Warsaw, has ideal

facilities for a course like this with adequate lecture rooms, area for posters from

participants and coffee break and lunches, and furthermore it is ideally located only

15 min away from the international Warsaw Chopin airport.

Costs: A registration/course fee of 250 € will cover participation, course materials, coffee breaks and lunches. The latter two are important to reduce time outside the

lecture room and to facilitate active interactions between participants and lecturers

during Meet the teacher session combined with coffee break and informally

throughout the course.

The fact that all contacted lecturers – who all are experts in various aspects of fluid

management in dialysis - have already agreed to participate speaks strongly to the

perceived need among the Nephrology community of a course like this.
