Recorded on the first day of the Intensive Care Society’s annual conference this conversation starts with some reflections about how conferences have moved into the modern age now with interactivity and new media revitalising the scene in unexpected ways.

Conversation then moves out to some of the big questions: Is the pulmonary artery catheter back? What have been some of the big take aways in nutrition? Why should you feed a cold and starve a fever? More Protein or less?

Finally, ‘humanizing intensive care’ is discussed, do we need more ITU pets?

Presented by Desiree Chappell and Monty Mythen confer on the events of the day with their guest Hugh Montgomery, Intensive Care Society Board Member and, Professor of Cardiovascular Genetics and Critical Care University College London.
