The mysteries of intensive care medicine unraveled
01 Sep 2020
In this webinar, Dr. Daniel Martin will outline why patients are admitted to an intensive care unit and what is available in terms of physiological support, monitoring, and treatments. Martin will use national data from the UK to highlight clinical outcomes in those patients admitted to an intensive care unit, illustrating the key messages with case studies. Martin will focus on oxygen delivery and utilization in critically ill patients and discuss ongoing research into this area, including his own experiences treating patients during the COVID-19 pandemic and explain how this disease compares to the type of diseases usually seen in the ICU.
Key learning objectives:
- Understand the impact of multiple organ failure and how patients are supported during critical illness
- Gain insight into the challenges faced by physicians looking after critically ill patients
- Understand the importance of systemic oxygen delivery in patients admitted to intensive care
- Appreciate the impact COVID-19 has had on ICUs around the world and how the disease manifested in severely unwell patients
Who should attend?
- Those interested in human physiology and the impact of multiple organ failure
- Those who provide support for intensive care units e.g. laboratories, imaging services, and a wide range of medical and surgical specialities
- Anyone interested in how COVID-19 affects the physiology of critically ill patients
