Guests: Kimon L. H. Ioannides, Junad Chowdhury Host: Markus Voelter, Nora Ludewig
Shownoter: Jochen Spalding
In light of the current situation, we have decided to record a couple of episodes that cover some of the relevant background in terms of biology, medicine and healthcare. In this first episode we discuss emergency care and intensive care with a special focus on ventilation. We discuss these topics in general, and also specifically to COVID-19. Our guest, Kimon and Junad, are both practicing doctors and have practical experience with these topics.

Well done: a top-notch episode. Where else but Omega Tau would you hear such timely and uber-geeky information.
Both doctors interviewed were interesting, articulate and responded well to the questions, helping non-specialists understand the concepts.
Excellent over-view. Real insight into the complexity of modern medical processes. Mature and professional honesty from the medics, including international differences. As always informed questioning, helped listener engagement on broad issue.
