Two weeks after the WHO declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic, our first COVID-19 marathon webinar on 28 March united over 130,000 healthcare professionals worldwide, from 160 different countries. The topics and questions gave rise to a number of studies and publications and ESICM has continued to provide open access resources to the global intensive care community.

Guest speakers, clinical researchers and international experts will present latest findings and experience and cover topics including adaptive research during a pandemic, immune response to SARS/COV2, coagulopathy & thrombosis, physiology and steroids in COVID ARDS…

The Half Marathon will be moderate by Jozef Kesecioglu, Maurizio Cecconi, Derek Angus, Howard Bauchner, Giuseppe Citerio, Jan De Waele and Armand Girbes.

Join the conversation and react #covidmarathon #esicmtv supported by our Social Media team led by Adrian Wong (@avkwong), David Lynes (@Gas_Craic), Velia Antonini (@FOAMecmo) and Segun Olusanya (@iceman).
