Xtreme Everest Symposium: Human Tolerance of Hypoxia: Going to Extremes to Understand Critical Illness
June 14, Duke University Durham, NC; 11 am – 7.15 pm (EST)*
* POZOR! 11:00am EST je 17 h středoevropského letního času
This conference will review the Xtreme Everest medical research program that takes lessons learned in extreme low oxygen environments, including that found on the summit of Mount Everest, and brings them back to the bedside of the intensive care unit (ICU).
This conference is suitable for anesthesiologists, physiologists, critical care physicians, stroke medicine physicians, neurologists, basic scientists.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Better understand human tolerance and adaption to hypoxia with goal to improve outcomes in critically ill patients.
- Improve knowledge of the effects on the human body of long term exposure to low levels of oxygen, and how some individuals adapt better to hypoxia than others.
Surviving Hypoxia – Is it About Delivery or Consumption?
