Venezuela is currently going through a very difficult situation if we talk abouth health services.

In conditions of precariousness many major country hospitals both personal, as family members of hospitalized patients in emergency rooms, wards and ICU are struggling every day to the shortage of medicines, reagents for laboratories, supplies basic and spare parts for medical equipment, as well as the hospitals infrastructure failure, insecurity, and to the imminent escape in increase of health professionals.

Public Intensive Care Units do not escape this reality; the management of patients in critical condition is becoming increasingly more difficult in the context of the current needs.

However, there is a determinant that daily borns in our rooms and is given directly by the interest and the enthusiasm of our staff work for the benefit of patients who are admitted. Humanize the situation of the country is not an easy task, but not impossible: great efforts to offer specialized attention, warmth, safety, tranquility and giving the best to our patients and their families; Today we put our grain of sand by multiplying the concept of humanization of the intensive care, through the training of personnel who newly started in the field of intensive nursing in our hospital, with a view to be spokesmen at the local level of the concept of humanizing.

Guided by the tips and talks of the 20th National Conference on Humanization, September 17th 2015 was a day in which it faced important issues in the management of critical patients and the concept of humanizing intensive care; with the active participation and commitment to take the info and make it practice among our staff. We have an elementary principle and it is that strategies are established and are updating to the extent that we are seeing great results and daily IC-HU Project offers to the whole world. This is our part: to be speakers of this message and to do so in our day to day.

This is our first contribution, small, our but productive and confident to win more and more professionals who join this noble gesture that undoubtedly will change completely all the paradigms of current medicine, not only in Intensive Care Medicin but any specialty and medical field.

We are always committed to think that together we add more.

We appreciate the support of Gabriel Heras in the strengthening of this issue and for his daily collaboration in the enrichment of the IC-HU Project.
