LIVES 2018 – Johannes Mellinghoff – Patient Outcome in ICU

Mr Aidan Baron interviews @JMellinghoff

Johannes is a Senior Lecturer within the School of Nursing at Kingston and St George’s University London, United Kingdom.
Johannes’s academic interests are in the area of outcome and process management of patients admitted and discharged from Intensive Care Units. Over the years he has participated in interventional & observational research trials focusing on neurological outcomes, family satisfaction and hemodynamic monitoring.

He is an elected member of the Nursing & Allied Healthcare Professional Committee of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine and active member in the congress committee which organises the yearly scientific affairs.
Takeaway points:
• 15 minutes of BRIGHT light in the morning
• We don’t know how ICU lighting is impacting staff
• There are serious impacts on older people and their families after discharge from ICU.
