Pediatrica intensiva: Art & Science of Pediatric Critical Care

Feb 5, 2024

Children with complex airway surgery are airways that truly scare us. Though a small number of patients in pedsICU, they can stay a long time and are at risk of death and morbidity from their underlying conditions, co-existing conditions, their treatment and ICU acquired problems. Managing these patients requires a high level of understanding, communication and teamwork between ENT/ORL, ICU, anesthesia, cardiothoracic surgery and numerous other teams.

We're going to cover the working up and investigation of patients transfers. The kind of conditions that are treated ranging from severe stenoses to severe malacias.  What the surgeons actually do what they want us to know and how it can best work together between ICU and surgical team.  We're also going to cover how we maintain these patients in the ICU, how we progress them, forwards, how we investigate problems and how we get the next debated and keep them safe.

Featuring special guests ORL surgeon and innovator David Zopf and Ryan Barbaro from University of Michigan and regular hosts @drpetaalexander @BostonChildrens  @drgregkelly @SCHNkids and Mike Clifford @RCH
