Keywords: 10 th jubilee conference, 2018
This year the 17th of November was not only the International Student’s day but also the day when the AKUTNĚ.CZ conference took place. This time it was quite special occasion – it was the jubilee 10 th time, when doctors, nurses, students (basically all anaesthesia and intensive care fans) met all together in the Campus of Masaryk University, Brno.
Assoc. Prof. Petr Štourač, MD, PhD, luanched into an opening speech, he sincerely and warmheartedly welcomed more than 1100 participants. The speeches of many guests of honour followed afterwards. The opening ceremony was closed by traditional announcement of Dr. Mach Prize winners – Dr. Kosinová and Dr. Krajčová and also Dr. Seidlová’s new book on perioperative care was presented.
After the opening ceremony the participants could choose from a variety of different lectures and workshops. Except for the usual main sections for doctors and nurses, the parallel sections such as pediatric anaesthesia, clinical pharmacology and obstetrics anaesthesia took place. The section devoted to young anaesthesiologists was part of this year’s conference as well, after last year’s great success.
Except for the lectures there were 11 workshops not only for doctors, but also some of them were for medical students to practice their skills and expend their knowledge. The most popular ones were Point-of-Care Ultrasonography and on Mechanical Ventilation workshops.
During the lunch break, 7 authors were presenting their work in Poster section. Each poster pointed out different and very interesting topic and so it was very hard for jury to decide which one was the best. For this year the winners were Dr. Vavřinová and Dr. Štětková with their poster on Fatal Outcome of Tumor Lysis Syndrome.
The atmosphere was very pleasant and friendly during the whole day – the statistics are speaking for themselves – 1103 participants came, 59 lectures were presented, 51 workshops took place, 1700 sandwiches and 1344 pieces of cakes were eaten. Thanks to you all the participants of the jubilee 10th AKUTNĚ.CZ conference and we can not wait for the next year – save the date November 16, 2019!
