Crash course in Intensive Care for SARS patients

  • Target audience: doctors with no previous experience of Intensive Care
  • Aim: to provide sufficient basic knowledge of Intensive Care for the participants to care for critically ill patients with SARS under the supervision of an Intensive Care specialist
  • Format: downloadable lectures (English narration), webpages within this site, external links to webpages and a course manual
  • Supplementary teaching: we recommend additional practical skill stations
  • Note that it is not necessary to cover all three forms of control ventilation. We recommend pressure regulated volume control, but this is only available on Siemens ventilators. Pick the mode most commonly used in your ICU
