Gain in knowledge acquired after listening to this MOOC:
The user knows …

  • … the importance of monitoring volume therapy as opposed to empirical volume therapy
  • … the limitations of dynamic parameters based on cardio-respiratory interactions
  • … integrated clinical reasoning on haemodynamic optimization during the perioperative period
  • … a diagnosis algorithm of hypovolaemia as a cause of haemodynamic instability during the perioperative period
  • … a therapeutic algorithm for correction of haemodynamic instability and optimization of cardiac output during the perioperative period

 

Practical skills to be acquired after listening to this MOOC:
The user is able …

  • … to apply a diagnosis algorithm of hypovolaemia during the perioperative period
  • … to apply a therapeutic algorithm for correction of haemodynamic instability and optimization of cardiac output during the perioperative period

 

Affective skills acquired after listening to this MOOC:
The user …

  • … is aware of the potential deleterious effects of hypovolaemia
  • … is aware of the importance of the diagnosis and managing of hypovolaemia since it is statistically associated with poor postoperative outcome

Fluid Management, made available on https://academy.esahq.org/esa/2016/elearning_modules/219319 and organized by The European Society of Anaesthesiology, is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide the following CME activity for medical specialists.

Each medical specialist should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). Only those e-learning materials that are displayed on the UEMS-EACCME website have formally been accredited.

Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and the American Medical Association (AMA), physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.

This module has been funded by an unrestricted educational grant from the Masimo Corporation. The content is unbiased and has been reviewed by the ESA eLearning Committee.
