Intensive Care Medicine in 2050
Critical care medicine in 2050: less invasive, more connected and personalized. Given the rapid changes in this field, it is likely that critical care medicine in 2050 will bear little resemblance to the practice today. World-renowned professor and intensivist Jean-Louis Vincent, M.D., Ph.D., will draw from his extensive knowledge and expertise in critical care medicine to speculate, in general terms, on how this specialty and the ICU will be moving forward over the next 30 years.
Critical Care Physicians, Cardiologists, Surgeons, Anesthesiologists, Emergency Medicine Physicians, Nephrologists, Pulmonologists, Infectious Disease Physicians, Neurologists, Gastroenterologists, Hospitalists, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, Pharmacists, Respiratory Therapists (Personal Growth) and other interested healthcare providers.
- Describe the projected evolution of intensive care medicine in terms of physical and organizational boundaries, equipment, patient demographics, staffing and process of care over the next 30 years.
- Recognize the important role personalized medicine has on all aspects of care in the management of intensive care patients.
- Address some of the problems related to preserving the human approach in light of evolving medical technology. Utilize these technological advances to complement – not replace – the human approach to care.
