Industry Partner Resources

Learn about clinical breakthroughs and advances that lead to better patient care during these thought-provoking presentations. Each session is presented by leading experts in critical care and offers a thorough analysis of the developments and controversies affecting most intensive care units.

SCCM offers various sponsorship and advertising opportunities for companies to promote their brand launches or current therapies, conduct a focused program on disease awareness, or discuss their current pipeline activity.

The views, opinions, and resources expressed are those of the sponsor and do not necessarily reflect the views, opinions, or resources of SCCM.

Fluid Deserves a FRESH Look - Especially in the COVID-19 Era

Learn about the importance of a comprehensive understanding of IV fluid types, fluid physiology, and evidence to support and refute fluid use in specific populations. We will discuss the significant outcomes of the recently published Fluid Response Evaluation in Sepsis Hypotension and Shock (FRESH) Study.

This session was organized by Baxter Healthcare Corporation and presented during SCCM's 50th Critical Care Congress.


The Clinical Utility of the BioFire Pneumonia Panel During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Dr. Tufik Assad will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on his hospital, and how the BioFire Pneumonia Panel has provided timely and precise pathogen identification in patients with lower respiratory tract infection. By better understanding co-infection rates in patients with COVID-19, his team has been able to initiate or de-escalate antibiotic therapy when appropriate.

This session was organized by BioFire Diagnostics and presented during SCCM's 50th Critical Care Congress.


Implementing Bedside Percutaneous Ultrasound Gastrostomy: Process Re-Engineering for Critical Car

The typical processes of initial gastrostomy placement are inefficient and complicated, both operationally and clinically. Attendees will learn how implementing a bedside percutaneous ultrasound gastrostomy (PUG) process resulted in quicker time to ICU discharge and better resource utilization. Topics will include pairing tracheostomy and gastrostomy (TPUG) and experience in the COVID-19-positive patient population.

This session was organized by CoapTech and presented during SCCM's 50th Critical Care Congress.


Pathway to Individualized Hemodynamic Management:Incorporating Pressure, Flow, Predictive Parameter

Exploring concepts surrounding pressure and flow management, this session will review current literature surrounding the use of continuous advanced hemodynamic monitoring for differentiating the cause of hypotension, introduce parameters such as the Acumen Hypotension Prediction Index (HPI)™, and review potential clinical applications through an expert panel discussion incorporating a live Q&A.

This session was organized by Edwards Lifesciences and presented during the SCCM 50th Critical Care Congress.


Current Trends in Critical Care Nutrition

Current nutrition evidence and trends in the critical care patient will be discussed. Dr. Rosenthal will focus on literature and science regarding the chronic patient, and Dr. Evans will focus on the clinical application of nutrition therapy in the acute patient.

This session was organized by Fresenius Kabi USA, LLC and presented during SCCM's 50th Critical Care Congress.


Procalcitonin’s Role in Antibiotic Stewardship & SARS-CoV-2 Infection, Secondary Bacterial Infectio

The role of procalcitonin (PCT) in SARS-CoV-2 has been unclear. The first part of the presentation will evaluate whether PCT concentrations can stratify and prognosticate secondary bacterial superinfection and patient outcome in the setting of SARS-CoV-2 infection. In the second part of the presentation, the role of PCT and stewardship recommendations in decreasing length of antibiotics therapy in pneumonia patients will be discussed.

This session was organized by Thermo Fisher Scientific and presented during SCCM's 50th Critical Care Congress.


Infusate and Risk Factors to Consider in Vascular Access

Vascular access decisions for critical care patients can be complex when infusate properties and complication risks both play a major role. Join Gregory J. Schears, MD, and Marcia A. Ryder, PhD, MS, RN, BSN, as they explain evidence that will guide practitioners in making decisions on vascular access that lead to practices with the potential to mitigate negative patient outcomes. 
This session was organized by BD Medical and presented during SCCM's COVID-19: What’s Next conference.


Hypotension Prediction: A New Frontier in Critical Car

Advanced hemodynamic parameters assist clinicians in making more precise interventions. Machine learning now provides clinicians the likelihood that a patient will trend toward a hypotensive event. This session examines the physiologic principles of hypotension, introduces the Acumen Hypotension Prediction Index (HPI)TM software, and demonstrates its application through case studies.  Presented by Alan Heffner, MD, Michael Scott, MB, ChB, FRCP, FRCA, FFICM, and Ricky Bengel, PA. 

This session was organized by Edwards Lifesciences and presented during SCCM's COVID-19: What’s Next conference.


Hypervolemia in the ICU: A Novel Approach to Fluid Management

Hypervolemia is a common complication in the ICU and is associated with increased length of stay and mortality. Ultrafiltration with Aquadex FlexFlow® allows for timely treatment and can be prescribed by any physician trained in extracorporeal therapy. Ultrafiltration has been shown to reduce certain post-operative complications and improve cardiac performance.

This session was organized by CHF Solutions and presented during SCCM's 49th Critical Care Congress.


Challenges of Sepsis Diagnosis and a New Approach Using the Host Immune Response, SeptiCyte®

This session showcases the new SeptiCyte® RAPID test running on the Idylla™ platform. Learn about SeptiCyte® RAPID, a host response test, with actionable results in approximately one hour, differentiating sepsis from systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) with high negative predictive value (NPV), thus expediting and improving patient management for critically ill patients being admitted to the ICU. Steven P. LaRosa, MD, will address the challenges of current sepsis diagnosis and a new alternative approach leveraging the host immune response while Russell R® Miller III, MD, will present highlights from the VENUS study, a clinical validation of SeptiCyte® LAB. 

This session was organized by Immunexpress and presented during SCCM's 49th Critical Care Congress.
