Fundamentals of ICU

These resources are intended for those new to ICU.

We realise it can be a daunting place when you first start. You will be surrounded by equipment, drugs and practices that will be unfamiliar to you.

They aim to demystify what we do, why we do it and provide some practical tips and hints.

We recommend attending the BASIC course as well for a further introduction to Intensive Care Medicine.
