#ESICMtv Webinar: Mind the ethical gap?

The global pandemic has led to an unprecedented number of critically ill patients admitted to ICUs. Intensivists are still under pressure to manage these patients when resources are insufficient or even lacking.

Some of the suggested methods of ICU triage have been challenging intensivists (and society) as they have had to adapt an egalitarian approach to a more utilitarian one. Are physicians the ones who should be taking on this task?

This webinar will discuss ICU triage and surviving COVID-19 from the perspectives of patients, relatives and clinicians.

Co-Presenters, Professors Hans Flaatten (Department of Anaesthesia & Intensive Care, Haukeland University Hospital, Norway) and Elie Azoulay (Medical Director, ICU, Hôpital Saint-Louis (Paris) & Professor of Medicine, Paris Diderot University, France), will answer questions from the audience at the end of this webinar, which will be moderated by Prof. Jozef Kesecioglu (Professor of Intensive Care Medicine, University Medical Center Utrecht, Netherlands and ESICM President).
