- Brought to you by Kirlin
- Where GoToMeeting
- Time 8:00 AM CDT

Please join us on September 18th to learn about today’s “Best Practices” for clinical and non-clinical lighting in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
Over the past 50 years, Kirlin has illuminated critical care spaces around the world, partnering with leading hospitals and healthcare systems. In the months since the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, the lines between ICU, Patient Room, and Procedural/Operating Room have continued to blur, with ICU wings acting as isolation spaces for COVID-19 patients and the staff who care for them. This is the continuation of a trend that has been underway for years, in which “procedure-ready” ICU spaces must increasingly meet the demands of Operating Rooms. Proper lighting is critical in these spaces not just for visual acuity, but also for infection control, patient safety, and patient comfort.
In this brief but information-packed 15 minute webinar, you’ll learn about the typical uses of an ICU room, the associated lighting requirements, and today’s best practices for specifying the proper clinical, ambient, wayfinding, and observation lighting for the modern Intensive Care Unit.
