About


After last year's virtual meeting, we return to Titanic Belfast for our 10th anniversary meeting. In just a decade the Critical Care Reviews Meeting has grown from a small local evening event to a major international three day conference. It has become the meeting to present and discuss the latest critical care trials. We host major trial results, often in association with synchronised major journal publications, review the best critical care trials of the previous year and explore aspects of trials methodology, interpretation, and publishing. Our unique long form format allows trialists the time to explain the nuances of their studies in detail, gives experts the opportunity to comment and converse with the trials team, and affords delegates the chance to ask questions, chat with the faculty during breaks, and determine whether these trials should change their practice. We also have the annual honorary John Hinds Trauma Lecture, and finish the meeting with the incredibly popular "Informal Chat", where the faculty and delegates congregate in the bar and an enormous, meandering discussion about all things critical care takes place.

The Critical Care Reviews Meeting is a truly unique event, where our aim is to share science rather than make money. For those who can't make it, we will be livestreaming the event for free. For those who do make it, we aim to have a minimal impact on our environment, with carbon offsetting in the form of tree planting, no plastics, and a focus on local food. Our venue is the stunning Titanic Belfast, where RMS Titanic and Olympic were built and launched into the North Atlantic waters. The atmosphere of our Meeting is different too, with a fusion of local live music and world class science, as well as offering unrivalled free on-site childcare, reduced maternity and paternity rates and a baby feeding area. Our social programme matches our scientific programme, with an event each night of the meeting, as well as early morning exercise options. Alternatively, take the time to explore our home city Belfast, which is remarkably vibrant and culturally rich. If you have time to stay for a few days or longer, get outside the city and explore the island - there are few more beautiful places in the world.

Welcome back to Belfast.

Belfast Walking Tour

There are few better ways to see a city than by walking it's streets with a knowledgeable local guide. First populated over 5000 years ago during the bronze age, but mainly growing from the 17th century onwards, Belfast's history spans the industrial revolution, ship building, the Troubles and now, a vigourous revival, highlighted by being nominated as one of Lonely Planet's must see venues in 2018.

Black taxi against a Belfast mural

Black Taxi Tour

No trip to Belfast would be complete without a black taxi tour of the interface areas of the city where much of recent "Troubles" were played out. This is a simply fascinating activity, especially for those of an age who lived through this difficult period. There are lots of tours available - we've linked to a simple google search.

Titanic Belfast and Belfast Lough

Crumlin Road Gaol, Belfast

Crumlin Road Gaol

Crumulin Road Gaol was built between 1843 and 1845 in North Belfast and played a central role in Belfast's history. It housed prisoners from Famine times right up to the "Troubles", where an underground tunnel connected the Gaol with the courthouse opposite. Seventeen prisoners were executed in the prison, the last being hanged in 1961.

Ilimex Air Sterilisation Technology has been designed to kill 99.9999% of all pathogens (including the SARS-Cov-2 pathogen, which causes COVID-19) using UV-C lamps and HEPA filters on first pass. The products have been stringently tested and verified by the University of Ulster. There are no other air management systems on the market that sterilise the air and especially not with the same level of efficacy, whilst producing no harmful ozone.

Uniquely, Ilimex air sterilisers do on rely on filters alone to kill bacteria and viruses. This is done in our proprietary kill chamber by wide band UV and photocatalytic reaction.

We have 4 types of units available with 2 more currently in production, to be released this year. The Pro Med Pal has been developed especially for the medical/surgical sector and is a personal portable unit, while the Ilimex Go is designed for surgical theatres, corridors, and lifts.
