The first day of the Intensive Care Society’s annual conference comes to a close. Heart failure session has ‘standing room only’. 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’. Do we need more ITU pets? Dogs in particular.
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.
