#MyBSEcho2021 | Catch up and take stock

BSEcho2021 is your chance to get up to date on everything that matters in echo.

With so much going on, and only so many hours in a day, it has been a struggle to keep up with all the changes and progress in echo over the last year.

That’s why #BSEcho2021 is vital for me. With such a huge range and breadth of talks available, both in the live sessions an the additional tracks, there really is an update on pretty much everything.

Of the live presentations, I am delighted to see a session focused on the often-polarising topic of ICU.

It usually people's favourite or least favourite area of echo, but is rapidly expanding. Knowing how the modality can help with fluid assessment, about the changes in mechanical ventilation, and how sepsis affects the heart, can really help us to manage very sick patients. I would say anyone who does even an occasional echo in ICU will find these talks very useful. 

Overall, I am very much looking forward to #BSEcho2021, and really can't wait to hear all the talks.
