Podcast : Temperature control in traumatic brain injury

The issue of temperature control in traumatic brain injury has vexed Intensivists, Emergency Physicians and Neurosurgeons for decades.

In this fabulous podcast from the 20th annual ANZICS CTG meeting from Noosa, I chat to Dr Manoj Saxena about this important topic.

Following the interview, Manoj mentioned his involvement with the 7th International Hypothermia and Temperature Management Symposium (IHTMS).

The symposium has been a recurring meeting since 2004, is held every 2 years, and organized scientific experts in the field of targeted temperature management.

The ANZICS CTG Meeting will take place on the Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th August at the same venue, and this meeting starts on the afternoon of the 28th until Thursday the 30th – it will be a fantastic week all health care workers interested in research, education and the application of evidence to everyday critical care.

The 7th IHTMS will include 25 International adult and paediatric investigators who will present plenary lectures and landmark clinical trials with editorial comment and panel discussions e.g. Peter Andrews, Seetha Shankaran, Alistair Gunn, Niklas Nielsen, Gisela Lilja, Frederique Schortgen, Morten Bestle, Hans Kirkegaarde, Michael Conterato

Themed sessions will include multi modal neurological monitoring and ECMO-CPR.

Panel discussions will focus on a practical message that delegates can apply in their everyday practice and include patients/relatives, academic members of the multidisciplinary team and clinical trialists.
