My life in three bags

Another morning in the Coordinating Center of Urgencies and Emergencies (CCUE). Dozens of calls per hour, a little or nothing friendly environment, less and less time to assume the call queue... All makes this still a more hostile environment.  Much technical language doesn´t help: platform, protocols, key resources, TETRA, GIS, GPS... just allow to recognize the human being to the other side of [...]

Proyecto HU-CI releases new logo and image

2019-08-02T18:57:22+00:0021 February, 2017|

Ailín and Mauricio got married…in the ICU

The Intensive Care Unit, a very curious place: human being above all, health and well-being... and humanity, that great little detail, a bit of side.

Medicine is responsible for the care of the body, and humanity [...]
