The aim of Care for Heart And Brain - is to enhance the knowledge on targeted temperature management (TTM), increase the readiness and stimulate the preparedness to institute therapeutic hypothermia and/or prophylactic controlled normothermia, respectively, in patients in need of tissue and organ protection, uncontrolled body temperatures possibly adding - per se - to neuronal damage. Furthermore, we want to share evidence and clinical experience in the management of accidental hypo- and hyperthermia.
The 5th Innsbruck Targeted Temperature Management Symposium - covers a large spectrum of scientific and clinical topics in the field of emergency and critical care medicine. Besides the rich program about the present knowledge, current practice and future perspectives, this trinational conference is complemented by a parallel symposium for nursing professionals on June 2, 2017.
We are looking forward to another successful and inspiring symposium and to welcoming you to Constance in June 2017.
