Interview with Ahmed Ismael, Medical Affairs Manager for Nestlé Health Science in the Middle East and Africa, by Natalia Muehlemann, Acute Care and Oncology Global Category Head at Nestlé Health Science.
NM: Good morning. We are here at ESICM Congress in Paris. I am with Ahmed Ismael, Medical Affairs Manager for Middle East and Africa. Ahmed, could you share with us your impression of ESICM meeting and some maybe key take-home messages?
AI: Yes, sure. So it’s always a pleasure to be at the ESICM because it gives you another perspective when it comes to ICU doctors and what do they really need when it comes to their practice. And in this meeting this year, when they addressed the gaps in monitoring and delivering nutrition to the doctors, it was really brilliant messages because this will lead to more improved outcomes and this is what we’re all looking for when it comes to patients in the ICU, especially critical illness. Our patient data management system was really good and we can see from my customers and other customers who came to the booth and asked about it, that, yeah, it’s a kind of a gap that… and it’s a global question that everyone needs an answer for. And I think it’s a very good opportunity for us to develop our business.
NM: Okay. Thank you very much and we wish you all the best with your ICU business in the Middle East and Africa.
