3rd International Symposium of Critical Care in Cancer Patients
4/30/2020 - 5/2/2020
Houston, Texas, USA
The incidence of oncologic diseases has risen in recent years. This is associated with an increase in the number of patients with cancer that can be found in Intensive Care Units. Critically ill oncologic patients have several therapeutic challenges due to their nutritional and immunologic baseline, risk of infectious diseases, and cancer-treatment toxicities. For this reason, it is essential to reduce the knowledge gaps, and provide critical care staff with updated educational resources to improve patient outcomes. This symposium addresses the complex scenarios that could be found in the intensive care units and allows the attendees to have direct contact and learn from oncologic critical care experts
