About Us

We will hopefully cover all things ICU not just from the patient perspective but also for the numerous fields involved in caring for a patient in ICU as well as helping them recover afterwards. Myself and any guests I have will speak as candidly about our experience in ICU regardless of what side of the experience we come from. My hope is this will dispel any myths or misunderstandings on what it is like to be in ICU. I was in ICU for 3 weeks, 2 1/2 in a medically induced coma, I suffer from Sepsis and ARDS while in ICU and a whole host of psychological and physical issues afterwards.

Creativity and Its potential role in ICU recovery

HI everyone, this episode is a Solo one just with me, Mark, talking about how I believe taking up a creative hobby in your recovery from ICU can help you cope better and might even help you recover mentally quicker. I have blogged, wrote poems and created this podcast as steps of my recovery and I talk a bit about my journey of why I did these things, why blogging was not for me and why poetry is still something I use in my day to day life. I also talk a bit about ICU delirium as well as how I use my poetry to cope with issues I had post ICU and still have nearly 5 years down the line. I hope this episode might give you some ideas on the tools you could use to help you cope better during your recovery and manage the bumps in your road to recovery. I hope you enjoy it and you can leave a voice message here: https://anchor.fm/icu-life-and-recovery/message or tweet or DM me at @ICU_Life or email me at ICU.Life.And.Recovery@gmail.com --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/icu-life-and-recovery/message

She specializes in adjustment to chronic illness and survivorship, acute and chronic pain management, neuropsychological assessment and rehabilitation, fatigue management, and health psychology intervention. Dr Hosey is also an Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Dr Hosey was the first person I thought of when the Idea of a Mental Health topic came up, She is in my view one of the best Psychologists about. She is an extremely kind and caring person which in my mind reflects an excellent mindset for a top-class healthcare professional. During the podcast, we cover in ICU anxiety, depression/ demoralisation as well as reflecting on my favourite topic of Delirium as well as early mobilization and its effects.

ICU Anxiety: How to manage it in ICU and in recovery post ICU

The Address: My view

I believe that we are all equal, I have been given this platform as a result of my friends and hard work. However with having a platform even a small one you have a duty to champion what is right. The podcast has always and will always stand for equality in all areas wether it be gender, ethnicity, sexuality or any other aspect. All humans deserve to be treated fairly, equally and without prejudice. I hope you find this podcast useful, I can’t be silent, I will not be complicit. I waited recording this podcast as I sought enlightenment or inspiration that would give me wisdom or some elegance in the way I spoke on this issue. It didn’t come I have sat on this for weeks hoping I could add something that would make it more powerful it didn’t come, so here it is please share it if you can. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/icu-life-and-recovery/message

The answer is a lot in this episode we discuss a lot of big ICU issues that effect adults and children alike which include Post Intensive `care syndrome and delirium. We also have an interesting discussion on the differences in visiting polices and why the more open paediatric model might have huge benefits in the adult setting. Sedation is one of the most difficult aspects of ICU care as it can have serious effects if over or under used we discuss benefits of reducing sedation while accepting it’s not suitable in all cases. We also speak about Covid-19 it’s effects and possible long term benefits it might have for the ICU profession.

ICU: why professional Diversity is important, Hardest and best things about life in ICU

The conclusion of my discussion with Dr Morgan, we speak about the importance of the MDT and the willingness of people to move from followers to leaders as the patient's needs require, In essence, the right 'tool' for the job. We also discuss the Best and hardest things about ICU and I share my thought on the best feeling as a patient in ICU and How we can better-set staff up so that they can facilitate communication with ICU patients. It is a frank and open discussion without the barriers often put up between Drs and patients, we speak from our experience on the topics and it is a refreshing environment. Dr Morgan is the Author of Critical an excellent ICU book which I would highly recommend anyone with an interest in ICU healthcare to have a read of or anyone who is just curious about what life is like in ICU. I'd like to thank Dr Morgan for coming on and sharing his expertise and experience it was a pleasure to speak with him and it is always good when a Welshman and a Scot get talking. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/icu-life-and-recovery/message
