The CRRT Conference is a unique forum that continues to provide a comprehensive coverage of the rapidly developing field of Critical Care Nephrology, AKI and CRRT. It highlights the recent advances in our understanding of pathophysiology of critical illness, AKI, emerging strategies in the management of sepsis, multi-organ failure, and the use of biomarkers to assess and manage patients with renal dysfunction. This year's program presents exciting new developments and evidence for assessing critically ill patients with imaging techniques, new definitions of AKI in liver disease, cardiorenal syndrome and key strategies to improve renal recovery. Experts will cover a wide-ranging review of the most recent technical advances in CRRT and the appropriate utilization of these techniques. Results of recently completed trials for prevention of contrast induced AKI, management of shock, and removal of endotoxin in sepsis will be presented. A mix of invited lectures, controversies, interactive workshops, tutorials, poster sessions, panel discussions and meet the expert sessions are planned to continue the tradition of multidisciplinary interactions throughout the conference.

Updated consensus recommendations on pathophysiology, risk assessment and management of patients with AKI post surgery
• Controversies in Management of the Critically Ill Patient
Diuretic Use for AKI, Drug Induced Kidney Disease, RRT for End Stage Liver Disease, Protecting the Kidney; Results from Trials in AKI and Sepsis
• Challenges and Controversies in Renal Support & CRRT

At the end of this conference attendees should be able to:

1. Describe the recent advances in the pathophysiology and management of critically ill patients with a focus on sepsis, multi-organ failure, infections, lung and kidney injury in different settings.
2. Discuss the best ways to identify, treat and follow up patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) resulting from different causes utilizing biomarkers, imaging and lab studies and applying educational tools to raise awareness of AKI.
3. Describe the principles and practice of renal replacement techniques including CRRT, IHD and plasma exchange and demonstrate how to setup and use these techniques for managing critically ill patients.

The CRRT target audience includes: MD/DOs, NP/PA/Nurses, Dieticians, Industry, Pharmacists, Residents and Fellows. Specialties include: Anesthesiology, Cellular & Molecular Medicine, Critical Care, Emergency Medicine, Family & Preventive Medicine, Geriatrics, and Internal Medicine.
