Critical care research

Current research projects from the Critical Care Research Group, who are based at the Kadoorie Centre for Critical Care Research and Education, include the following.

HAVEN: a hospital-wide project to design and develop an electronic early warning system to identify patients who may need treatment on the intensive care unit

FOBS: a project aiming to develop an evidence-based protocol for how frequently vital signs (heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, temperature etc) are taken when patients are admitted to hospital

CAFÉ: a study looking at why some patients develop new onset atrial fibrillation when admitted to ICU and how best to treat them

RRAM: routinely collected data to evaluate effects of different medications that prevent blood clotting during treatment to improve kidney function
