Xtreme Everest: going to extremes to understand critical illness
Starts: April 5 - 7:30pm Ends: April 5 - 8:30pm
Mike Grocott – Professor of Anaesthesia & Critical Care Medicine, University of Southampton.
Mike will talk about the Xtreme Everest group that has undertaken field, laboratory and clinical research on human responses to low oxygen levels. He will outline how this improves under-standing of critical illness and improves patient outcomes. He will present results: some leading to changes in practice, and what may be next. He will share anecdotes of his expeditions to climb Everest and in other extreme environments.
Mike and his family live in Lymington and his research could affect the health and recovery of any one of us.
Friends of St Barbe Talks are held on the first Friday of each month. Members are free, Guest are welcome £5 per person.
Held at the Baptist Church, opposite St Barbe on New Street.
Doors open at 7pm with the talk starting at 7.30pm lasting roughly an hour

The first Open Gardens day was held in 2010 was a great success; and the Open Gardens scheme is now an established Lymington summer event enjoyed by many Lymington residents and visitors.
Why not make it a day out? You will see the New Forest ponies and their foals as you travel through the Forest. There are lots of cafés and pubs in the town where you can have lunch or pleasant picnic spots down on the Quay or in Grove Gardens park near the High Street. Entry to the gardens will be by programme (£6) on sale in advance at St Barbe Museum in New Street and at Moore Blatch, 48 High Street, on the day as well as at all other gardens. Many of the gardens are within walking distance of each other - or if you want to see them all a short bicycle ride.
