Moving towards Individualization of Care in the ICU

June 29th, 2018 DANIEL J. LICHT Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

The history of delivery of care in medicine has been to understand a disease, develop new treatments and tailor the treatments to populations of affected individuals. On average, this has been a very successful strategy, and has resulted ever-increasing longevity. Similarly, the care for infants with severe forms of congenital heart defects has been centered on improving survival. While very successful, 50% of survivors have cognitive impairments which diminish likelihood of successful adult independence and limit the quality of life. Improvements in measuring aspects of cerebral physiology during care of the individual patient have great potential for improving the quality of survival.
