We are delighted to announce that we have received 135 poster applications including 20 from abroad.

Even though the common theme of the conference is COVID-19, it is extraordinary to see the diversity of topics that are presented in these posters ranging from clinical medicine questions like the presenting characteristics of severely ill COVID-19 patients and medicines used to treat the infection to issues that deal with the impact of the pandemic on society in general, e. g., the right to fair trial, emotional well-being and changes in university teaching methods.

To let you taste some of the exciting content that our participants will share on the 28th and 29th of April, we handpicked some highlights from our submissions that particularly caught our eye. The clinical and scientific reports include studies of cutting-edge technologies like “Extracorporeal blood purification with cytokine-absorbing hemofilter in severe COVID-19 patients”, as well as clinical observations like “Cardiovascular involvement in multisystemic inflammatory syndrome in children”.

A major part of our received posters deal with public health issues, including important aspects like “The quality of care in general practice in Latvia during the COVID-19 pandemic” and “Relationship between vaccination intention and the health belief model constructs during the COVID-19 pandemic”.

This has been a rough time for medical students as well, hence, the study “Anatomy teaching in the time of COVID-19: plastic physical models vs. digital models?” to emphasize the challenges of the remote environment that we have learned to endure.

The past two years have seen a rise in application of innovative technologies, one of which is presented in “Monitoring of critically ill COVID-19 patients on mechanical lung ventilation using breath sensor technology”.

For practical clinicians a collection of over 20 reports of intriguing clinical cases will serve as the cherry on the cake. A couple of exciting ones are “The management of multiple pregnancy (triplets) with severe COVID-19 infection” and “Pneumomediastinum in COVID-19 patients”.

See you on site or virtually on 28 and 29 April 2022!
