The Society of Critical Care Medicine's Critical Care Congress features internationally renowned faculty and content sessions highlighting the most up-to-date, evidence-based developments in critical care medicine. This is a presentation from the 2021 Critical Care Congress held virtually from January 31-February 12, 2021.

Learning Objectives

  • Illustrate methods for improving outcomes of pediatric patients with severe infections using pharmacokinetics to optimize antimicrobial dosing
  • Describe and appraise animal model data supporting the use of personalized pharmacometrics that optimize antimicrobial dosing to improve survival
  • Demonstrate how different antimicrobial adsorption and clearance profiles impact optimization of dosing while on extracorporeal therapies such as continuous renal replacement therapy or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation
