Critical Care Curriculum Group Chair, Christopher Carroll, MD, FCCP, shares some early insight into the CHEST 2023 educational curriculum. Find out what hot topics Dr. Carroll is excited to see presented during education sessions in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi, October 8 to 11. To see what else is in store, browse the full educational program.

“For CHEST 2023, we really made the effort to cover a lot more advanced topics in critical care,” he said. “We have some excellent sessions on advanced ventilator physiology and leveraging technology to improve patient management. We also have some great sessions on waveform analysis that dive into respiratory and cardiac physiology in a way that we haven't really done before. It's going to be an exciting meeting.”

Key Sessions

Advanced Ventilator Management: Where Technology Meets Physiology
Cardiac Waveforms in the ICU
Case-Based Ventilator Graphics: Using Ventilator Graphics to Optimize Patient Management
A Systematic Approach to Undifferentiated Shock: From POCUS to PACs!

Dr. Carroll has been attending CHEST Annual Meetings since 2003 and believes that, over the years, the educational sessions presented keep getting better. Sessions have adapted to focus on education both for people who are early in their careers, as well as those who have been out of fellowship for years and are wanting to explore more advanced topics, including literature reviews.

Key Sessions

Big Data in Sepsis: From Epidemiology to Diagnosis
Evidence-Based ECMO: Advancing Support Beyond Historical Data
From Intubation to Extubation: A Review of the Most Recent Literature

“This year, there will be more of a focus on the implications of what we do in the intensive care unit,” Dr. Carroll said. “There are also going to be a lot of great sessions on improving the patient and family experiences, both in the ICU and after ICU discharge. We will also be focusing on how caring for these patients affects clinicians.”

Key Sessions

Beyond Survival: Approaches to Optimize Critical Illness Recovery
The Power of Narrative Medicine
The Intersection Between End-of-Life Care, Professional Burnout, and Team Engagement in Critical Care

“We spent a lot of time curating the critical care curriculum this year and carefully taking what people submitted to us into consideration to build the best program and the best learning experience we could,” Dr. Carroll added.

Dr. Carroll looks forward to attending these critical care sessions alongside fellow CHEST 2023 attendees. Visit the annual meeting website to learn more about the meeting.
