Critical Care Services


Every core trauma surgeon is also qualified in surgical critical care. We provide 24/7 coverage for all trauma patients admitted to our modern Trauma Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit (TNU). The trauma surgeons take on the primary responsibility for all aspects of ICU care, including ventilator support, management of the severe head injured patient, wound management, venous thromboembolism prophylaxis, etc. Our ICU management example has gained national attention. We also have a sophisticated bedside procedure program, which includes bedside placement of percutaneous tracheostomy, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy and inferior vena cava (IVC) filters. The bedside placement of IVC filters has also captured national attention. The ability to do procedures at the bedside, as opposed to the operating room or the radiology suite, eliminates the need for the sometimes risky ‘road trip’ where a critically ill patient is transported out of the monitored and closely observed environment of the ICU to another area of the hospital. The critically injured trauma patient who is admitted to the TNU can be assured of receiving the most up to date, innovative critical care that could possibly be achieved in any tertiary or quaternary major medical center.
