This Saturday (21/11), the Mining Society of Intensive Care (Somit), holds the fourth edition of ICU campaign in the Square. Those passing by JK Square, South-Central region of Belo Horizonte, you can take a guided tour to several tents that will show what they are and how to operate the Intensive Care Units (ICU's).

ICU beds are mounted adult and neonatal equipment and dolls, so people can see firsthand the operation of these units. The campaign is a celebration of Day of the intensive care unit, entered into 10/11, and has the support of the Medical Association of Minas Gerais.

We want to show that the ICU is a place of life, warmth and care, patients are referred to where they need special care and, no, terminally ill patients, as some people think, explains the president of the dermatome, the physician Rogério Castro Pereira.

Health Promotion in the tent, people can measure blood pressure and glucose, and receive guidance on health care and prevention of stress and accidents. There will also be distributing leaflets and displaying an educational video that addresses the care of first aid. Viewers will learn, for example, how to rescue a victim of cardiac arrest.

Doctors, psychologists, nurses, physiotherapists, speech therapists and dieticians explain the role of each health professional within the ICU s. The goal is to allow the public to familiarize itself with the ICU, know how to act in emergencies and learn how to prevent diseases and accidents.

Also will be offered guidance on brain death and organ donation, in partnership with MG Transplantation. Prior knowledge of the entire donation process is critical for the person to become a donor. In this campaign, we want to encourage organ donation, says the president of somites.

About 100 volunteers, including students and health professionals, will attend the event. The goal is to get 700 to 800 people in the square, surpassing the 500 people in last year's campaign. ICU in the Square has a partnership with the Medical Association of Minas Gerais, Brazilian Association of Critical Care Medicine, MG Transplantation and the support of the Regional Council of Medicine of Minas Gerais, Regional Council of Psychology of Minas Gerais, and SESC Unimed-BH-MG .
