1st Asian Pediatric Mechanical Ventilation Forum, Kuala Lumpur – August 2017


This inaugural forum aims to assist clinicians and allied health professionals working in pediatric intensive care units across the Asian region through educational lectures and discussion.

This forum also aims to promote discussion with regard to best practices and challenges that are present in supporting critically ill children who require respiratory support within the region. In addition, we hope that this forum will be a sustainable platform to encourage collaboration in advanced respiratory support within Asia.

This first edition of the forum focuses on important respiratory conditions such as pediatric acute respiratory distress syndrome, mechanical ventilation strategies as well as non-invasive ventilation topics. We look forward to an active participation from healthcare professionals from Asia in this inaugural forum!

The 1st Asian Pediatric Mechanical Ventilation Forum will be held in Shangri-la Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Further details regarding this forum can be obtained from www.msic.org.my.   We look forward to seeing you in at this inaugural meeting.
