A Firsthand Look at Australian ICUs in the Time of Corona
An Interview of Dr Ken Hillman By Marisse Sonido
These days, our media, our emails, and our thoughts are saturated with news of the COVID-19 pandemic. A lot of this news is filtered down from one source, to the next. As medical students, while we understand more about it than the general population, we still find ourselves on the outskirts of this pandemic.
Dr Ken Hillman is an ICU specialist at Liverpool Hospital NSW and a Professor of Intensive Care at UNSW. In this capacity, he has helped manage many severe cases of COVID-19 in Southwest Sydney. We were fortunate enough to interview him in April about his firsthand experiences and insight on the pandemic.
