My name is Jonathan Downham and I am an Advanced Critical Care Practitioner in Warwick, UK.
I have worked in Critical Care for over 20 years now and have learned many things whilst there. This site has some of my teaching resources, podcasts and videos for anyone else to benefit from.

One of the reasons our patients cannot sleep is because of all the noise we make at night. Is the answer just to make less noise? How can we do this? Will it make a difference? I chat with Julie Darbyshire (@JLDarbyshire) whose PhD is on this subject to find out more.
There are now Advanced Practitioners appearing across the world of nursing, physiotherapy and paramedicine to mention just a few.
Here Bryan and I chat with Ruth Kelinpell who is the President of the Society of Critical Care Medicine about how these roles developed, what is happening today and what may happen in the future.
Lots of interesting points raised and some great food for thought.
What happens to our patients after they leave the ICU? ICU patients are more complex even after discharge. They have a lot of post-discharge needs that make them unique and not every primary care provider is equipped to deal with them.
That's why a number of centers are starting to develop ICU recovery clinics that see patients after they are discharged.
Today on the podcast, I'm joined by Dr. Ashley Montgomery-Yates, an attending physician in the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine division at the University of Kentucky and director of UK's ICU Recovery Clinic.
