Peter Brindley on Human factors, technology and humanity in critical care

00:0000:00

This podcast was recorded at the Intensive Care Society State of the Art meeting in London 2018. Simon Carley interviews Prof Peter Brindley on the interface of technology, humans and humanity in critical care. The audio was recorded live and at the venue so there is a fair bit of background noise, but we hope that this does not distract from a wide ranging and fascinating podcast.

00:0000:00

Greetings from the London Trauma Conference!

As has become our pre-Christmas custom, Iain and I have been hanging out at the fabulous London Trauma Conference, hearing about advances and controversies in trauma care and tracking down some of the speakers to find out exactly what they really think (and recording it, for podcasts we'll release in due course).

The conference extends over four days, incorporating the Air Ambulance and Prehospital Day and the Cardiac Arrest Symposium; unfortunately we can't stick around for those but our colleagues over at the RCEM FOAM network will be podcasting from those days too, so keep an eye on their site and podcast feed too.

Youri Yordanov: Lessons learned from the November Paris attacks. St.Emlyn’s

00:0000:00

We are truly honored to listen and learn from Dr Youri Yordanov from Paris. Youri was the senior emergency physician on duty on the 13/11/15 during the brutal and terrifying terrorist attacks in Paris. Here he joins St.Emlyn's to discuss how they managed a mass casualty incident with lessons for us all.

There is no doubt that without the skills, preparation and response of Youri, his ED team, the wider hospital and the emergency service in general the death rate would have been much worse.

Thanks Youri for your wisdom and reflections.
