“We are excited to partner with Critical Care Time as the primary sponsor of its inaugural season. These podcasts will share insightful discussions of issues faced by physicians who care for the critically ill, whether the patient is in an intensive care unit, emergency department, operating room or ambulance,” said Kevin Chung, MD, Chief Medical Officer of SeaStar Medical. “We are impressed by the Critical Care Time team of leading physicians and are confident this podcast series will be a valuable educational resource for critical care practitioners in their fight to save lives.

“Our sponsorship allows SeaStar Medical to connect with the healthcare professionals we are working to support with our novel, patented Selective Cytopheretic Device.
