Welcome to my Website!
My name is Jonathan Downham and I am an Advanced Critical Care Practitioner in the UK. I have worked in Critical Care for over 20 years now and loved it from day one!
I use my website to help others learn some of the knowledge and skills they will need when working in this specialty through podcasts, blog posts and teaching videos. I hope you find it useful.
I started making podcasts back in 2012 and try to release at least one or two a month. During that time I have chatted with other practitioners from around the world on all topics related to critical care. You can find many of them on this website or subscribe to them on whichever podcatcher you choose.
Visual learning is something I am a great believer in and I use videos from YouTube many times for my education.
I have now also started a series of teaching videos which I hope will help others to learn in this way also. If you have any particular subjects you are weak on let me know.
I have tried to understand a number of subjects over the years and as a consequence I have been able to write a few posts/pages that I think might help you as well.
Mechanical ventilation is just one of these subjects which I try to help you understand.
