Welcome message
Dear colleagues,

We warmly welcome you to the "2nd Spring Symposium of Applied Cardiovascular Physiology and Treatment in ICU and Anaesthesia" organized by the Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care - University
Hospital Split, Université Paris Cité - Paris 7, and Department of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care - University Hospital Careggi, Florence.

The "1st Spring Symposium of Applied Cardiovascular Physiology and Treatment" took place in Zagreb in June 2022. and brought as the main topic "systemic and regional cardiovascular changes in acute conditions".

This year Symposium is focused on "organs crosstalk’s" in critically ill patients as the central topic observed and discussed from different points of view related to haemodynamic changes, inflammatory and immune characteristics
, diagnostics, therapies, and mechanical supports.

We are looking forward to meet you all this year and in the years ahead.
