The detailed overview of the programme sessions is now available. Browse sessions to discover your topics of interest and the names of the speakers.

Allocations within the abstract-based and clinical case-based sessions will be included in the overview on a later stage.

The conference programme will develop some purely acute or purely chronic adult respiratory failure topics but will also focus the majority of its sessions on a combined track where the disease progression from acute to chronic will be discussed. Independently of their main interest, all delegates are welcome to attend this combined track as it mirrors how both types of failure meet regularly in clinical practice. However, the flexibility of the conference allows you to separately choose any session of interest from the programme.

Please note that the programme will be provided in a digital format only and no printed final programme will be available onsite.
