Learning Resources

I hope these are helpful

I have worked over the last few years to chat with others around the world about changes and developments in critical care. Feel free to feedback.

I am a very visual learner and find it much easier to learn from YouTube than anywhere else. So, inspired, I made some of my own!

I have had to understand many subjects over the years and as I have done so I have written my notes down on the website. Hope they help.

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.

If you want to follow me on Twitter then look for @ccpractitioner. I am very active on there and it is the best way to get in touch with me quickly.

CCP Podcast 104- Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS)

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.
