COVID 19 | Vital information direct from experts in Italy

"You're a bit further down the line with managing these patients. Any particular advice?"

Italy, the situation is difficult but there are now clear lessons to be learned as the first chapter in the front line battle against the consequences of a global pandemic is written.

Hear how the story regarding treatment for this disease evolved in Italy and consequently around the world. Has the debate regarding acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) been a red herring? What is the effectiveness of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in these cases? Are all COVID 19 patients the same? Crucially - what can cardiac dysfunctions in these patients tell us?

This podcast is essential listening for students and medical practitioners who want to hear a real life discussion about one of the most important medical and population health emergencies the world has ever faced.

Presented by Joff Lacey with Monty Mythen and additional questions from Desiree Chappell alongside their guest, Maurizio Cecconi, Head of the Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Department at Humanitas Research Hospital; President-elect of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) for 2020-2021, Chair Division of Scientific Affairs at ESICM; Director of the Master in Patient Blood Management at Humanitas University.
