SMART WEBINAR ON-DEMAND – Minimally Invasive CO2 Removal: From Theory to Practice

The WEBINAR entitled “Minimally Invasive CO2 Removal: From Theory to Practice” held on 1 July, 2020, in collaboration with SMART (Smart Meeting Anesthesia Resuscitation Intensive Care), is avaiable ON-DEMAND until 1 JULY, 2021.


Chairperson: M. Quintel (Goettingen)

First physiology: the Baby Lung, the COVID-19 Lung and potential role of COremoval

L. Gattinoni (Goettingen)

Mini-Invasive COremoval: experience in Hypercapnic Respiratory Failure

M. Maggiorini (Lucerne)

Application of Mini-Invasive CO2 removal in ARDS and COVID-19

D. Chiumello (Milano)

During this webinar we will analyze the potential of minimally invasive extracorporeal CO2 removal (LF-ECCO2-R). Starting from concepts of respiratory pathophysiology, we will discuss the differences between a lung in the clinical context defined as ARDS and in COVID-19 disease, and try to identify the best patient-tailored ventilatory strategies including rationale and potential for a well-designed minimally invasive extracorporeal CO2 removal system in the management of the patient’s ventilatory support in order to prevent potential ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI).
