A talk by Domagoj Damjanovic at the TBS24 conference in Zermatt. Kindly shared with permission.
See the TBS24 landing page for the programme and full set of talks.
In emergency and critical care, we tend to focus on the arterial side of hemodynamics. What if there was an opposed physical force, often neglected, but equally as important? If there was, how could better appreciating it affect patient management? And how could the concept even apply to CPR? Domagoj will share some current ideas, data and surprises on venous congestion and Heads-Up ECPR.
