Reflecting on a crisis
Previous Doctor Informed episodes have discussed how to prevent patient safety issues from occurring, but sometimes situations are beyond anyone's control - like COVID. It can be hard to look back, especially if difficult decisions and compromises were made, including ones we did not completely agree with, or if there could be criticism of the way we responded. We ask how individual doctors, teams, and organisations could respond to and recover from major problems? In this episode, we're joined by Annelieke Driessen, a THIS Institute fellow and medical anthropologist. She is a research fellow at the University of Oxford ...

SCCM Pod-460 CCE: Multiple PCR for Direct Detection of Bloodstream Infection After Pediatric Cardiac Surgery
Nosocomial infections are a prevalent cause of death and complications in critically ill children. Conventional cultures are able to detect only up to 25% of bacteremias. Several studies have suggested that molecular tests could be a faster and effective tool for detection of bacterial infections. (Source: SCCM PodCast - iCritical Care)
