Abstract and case submission

The call for abstract/case submissions for the ERS Respiratory Failure and Mechanical Ventilation Conference 2022 is now open.

Why submit an abstract or case?

The aim of the Respiratory Failure and Mechanical Ventilation Conference is to support the exchange of knowledge amongst the international scientific community. Writing an abstract for this conference is an important way for you to communicate your scientific research or clinical practice with your peers. Submitting a clinical case is also very valuable as an educational resource, which strongly supports our offering of case-based sessions.

The call for abstracts is now closed. Authors will be notified of the notice of selection or rejection in May 2022.

Online submission

You can submit your an abstract using myERS. If you do not already have an account you will be required to create one. Once signed in, you should select the “ABSTRACTS/CASES” tab and select “RFMV”.

Get involved in the programme

If you submit a clinical case, your work could be selected to be presented in a case-based session at the Respiratory Failure and Mechanical Ventilation (RFMV) Conference.

Clinical cases are a detailed reports of the symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of an individual patient. Clinical cases may contain a demographic profile of the patient, but usually describe an unusual or novel occurrence.

Online submission

You can submit your clinical case using myERS. If you do not already have an account you will be required to create one. Once signed in, you should select the “ABSTRACTS/CASES” tab and select “RFMV”.

Before you submit a clinical case, please read the instructions on how to write a good clinical case and the submission guidelines. Further details are available on the submission platform.

You may submit up to three cases covering the following topics:

  • Adult acute respiratory failure
  • Chronic respiratory failure
  • Monitoring of mechanical ventilation in children
  • Monitoring the ventilated patient
  • Noninvasive ventilation – practical aspects
  • Noninvasive ventilation and noninvasive CPAP in the PICU
  • Paediatric respiratory failure
  • Problem-solving – Case studies of NIV problems
  • Weaning from the mechanical ventilation

When preparing your case for submission, please structure it using the following sections:

  1. Case history
  2. Investigations
  3. Results and treatment
  4. Conclusions and points for discussion
