Invited speakers and meeting format:
The ISIAMOV 2007 planning committee is composed
of leading academic, clinical and device industry representatives.
This planning committee has selected internationally known
speakers to present on topics relevant to the monitoring of
oxygenation and ventilation. The Conference is scheduled for
March 15-17, 2007, with an anticipated attendance of 250-300.
The format is envisioned to include plenary lectures, round
table discussions, scientific poster presentations and vendor
demonstrations. It is believed that the small venue, interactive
round table discussions, and research-oriented topics will
prove fertile ground for lively interdisciplinary dialogue
and participant camaraderie. The ultimate goal is to establish
an environment leading to greater collaboration between academics,
clinicians and the device industry.
The objectives of the symposium
are to bring together clinicians, device developers and researchers
for an interchange of expertise and ideas in the areas of:
non-invasive monitoring of oxygenation and CO2, as an indicator
direct blood analysis of CO2, O2 and hemoximetry, including those
conditions that adversely affect measurement.
photoplethysmography, with an emphasis on its shape and size as
indicators of physiologic and pathologic variables, e.g., cardiac
output, local perfusion and respiration.
patient safety and monitor use as it relates to the aforementioned
This event will provide a forum for highlighting
and discussing state-of-the-art concepts as applied towards new
and developing technologies. It will provide an educational forum
for people in academic, industry, and regulatory positions and highlight
the government’s commitment to proactive identification of
technical and clinical issues designed to streamline and facilitate
subsequent regulatory submissions.
It is intended that:
clinicians benefit by gaining insight on how monitoring
technologies function, with greater appreciation of a device's capabilities
engineers and device developers gain an expanded
understanding of their technology in use, associated clinical challenges,
and user expectations.
researchers appreciate both the need for optimizing
study design and the consequence of variables affecting performance
of a medical device.
the mix of attendee disciplines, diversity of
topics and intimate venue provide for lively discussion, with
the goal of spurring development of new technologies and advancing
the field of patient monitoring.
