Palliative Care in the ICU

For historical context, today is 05.11.22 and I am going to start compiling the data showing the benefits of having a palliative care team in the ICU. This post will be updated regularly as time permits. I have been fortunate to work, and have worked, with some great people on these teams during the course of my career. From these palliative care teams, I have learned much about how to take care of this particular side of ICU care. I have touched up on how I do some of my own palliative care-type work in a previous post where I explain how I speak to patients regarding expectations for patients who unfortunately end up on mechanical ventilation secondary to you-know-what. You can check out that post and podcast by CLICKING HERE. More coming soon…..

How to Support My Work

My efforts are at no cost to you and I would like to keep it that way. You have to look at ads on this website, listen to them on my podcast and YouTube content. Thanks for bearing with me. You could also support my work by clicking on my Amazon Affiliate links prior to ordering things off of Amazon.

For example, if you want to learn more about Mechanical Ventilation, I recommend starting off with The Ventilator Book by Will Owens. If you click on that link, a window for Amazon will open up and I will earn between a 1-3% commission at no expense to you. The fun thing is that if you order anything else on Amazon, I will earn that amount off of your shopping cart even if you do not purchase the book. Pretty cool, right? In 2021, Amazon Affiliates helped me pay for the hosting of my website, LLC fees, and Netflix.
