Dear colleagues!
We are very happy to announce the 10th Innsbruck Winter Symposium for Coagulation! The main focus of this symposium is “Update in Massive Transfusion”.
To provide the latest news in this hot topic, we are very proud to compile a programme with outstanding international key opinion leaders who are going to present the actual guidelines for trauma and severe perioperative bleeding, current research results and personal experiences. Main goal of the Symposium is to facilitate basic understanding and focus on new aspects and recent findings in the field of massive bleeding management. In detail, we will focus on trauma, critical care medicine, cardiac surgery, paediatric surgery and patient blood management.
We are very happy to welcome you to the 10th Innsbruck Winter symposium for Coagulation!
On behalf of the organizing committee,
Dietmar Fries, Petra Innerhofer and Corinna Velik-Salchner!
