360 ICU bedspace orientation by the  London Transformation and Learning Collaborative (LTLC) an HEE and NHS England/Improvement (London) initiative

This educational resource has been designed as an inter-professional introduction to ICU tool to orientate the user with the bed space. It will make them aware of some of the equipment that they will use in both routine and emergency situations. It builds a shared understanding of risk and reduces dependence on critical care staff. NB  This works best on a smartphone but can be used on other devices.

Webinars and Other Resources

Webinar on Inhaled therapies during COVID19 – An overview of the new published 2020 GOLD Science Committee Report.

The latest GOLD Report (click here) stated that for COVID-19 patients receiving ventilatory support…it is vital to keep the circuit intact and prevent the transmission of the virus. Using a mesh nebulizer in ventilated patients allows adding medication without requiring the circuit to be broken for aerosol drug delivery.

Following this we are delighted to invite you to a webinar on Inhaled therapies during COVID19 – An overview of the new published 2020 GOLD Science Committee Report.

Presented by two members of the GOLD Committee; Prof. David Halpin, DPhil, FRCP, FERS and Prof. Dave Singh, MD, FERS, FBPHS and chaired by Prof. Antonio Artigas, MD, PhD this webinar will take place on Monday 7th December 2020  16.30 – 18.00 (GMT). 

The webinar will focus on;

  • Clinical research and management of the COPD patient during the COVID19 pandemic
  • Reviewing the guidance related to the use of inhaled therapies in COVID19 patients
