Respiratory Critical Care Medicine

Project Aim

The Respiratory Critical Care HERMES project was launched in 2009 with the aim to provide educational standards and a training framework for respiratory critical care medicine. The level of competence for adult respiratory physicians not directly involved in multi-disciplinary critical care but who need knowledge on respiratory critical care is defined.

This project represents the first step towards a European diploma in basic respiratory critical care open to all physicians specialised in adult respiratory medicine and dealing with intermediate respiratory intensive care units or units dedicated solely to critical care of pulmonary diseases.

Target Audience

Target audience is composed of all physicians specialised in adult respiratory medicine and dealing with intermediate respiratory intensive care units or specialised units dedicated solely to critical care of respiratory diseases. This project will guide the audience to acquire competence for multidisciplinary critical care after respiratory critical care.
