The 3rd Critical Care Symposium was held in 2006 at The Atlantic Suite, Terminal 2, Manchester Airport.

Mike Darwin has kindly written a review of this event, which can be found in the ”Event Reviews Section”

This year it was decided to hold a two-day event there by allowing for more topics to be covered. This program extension additionally allowed four workshops to be held on each day of the symposium, with each workshop being held four times. This allowed delegates attend all four workshops during the event.
