A new model for intensive care

With generous funding from the Wellcome Trust, we are excited to be leading a new flagship programme on developing technology for use in intensive care units (ICUs).

In the video below, our Director Guy Thwaites helps to explain the project, and the impact that it could have:

“The vision for this project is to create a centre that develops a new model for intensive care… There are quite big differences between an ICU in a rich country, and those ICUs in less well developed countries. The rich country models of intensive care are barely affordable in rich countries. What we’re trying to do is to create a sustainable and affordable model of intensive care using new technology, that is going to be appropriate for Vietnam and for counties like it for the future.”
