During this webinar goal directed therapy will be discussed within the bigger picture of Patient Blood Management by 4 national and international speakers. Goal directed therapy can minimize the need of allogenic blood products and therefore may improve patient outcomes.
Prof. Dr. Van de Velde, also moderator of the webinar, introduces Patient Blood Management and preoperative optimisation of the patient. The possibilities without the availability of point-of-care (POC) diagnostics are discussed by Dr. Casu. The next subject, by Dr. Fattorutto, covers a protocol based on the use of POC. The last speaker, Prof. Henskens explains how to implement a protocol in your hospital.
