Karim A. El-Kersh, MD, from the University of Louisville discussed what changes can be made to help in this area of medicine including what he termed a "closed" intensive care unit with a "single leadership team," with the goal of helping to lower the infection rate in the ICU. The data was presented at the annual CHEST conference in Montreal.
