Cardiac Surgical Critical Care Unit
Residents rotating on Cardiac Surgical Critical Care service are members of a multidisciplinary team providing around-the-clock intensivist-led care to critically ill patients in the Cardiac Surgical Intensive Care Units. This is an optional rotation available to CA-2 and CA-3 residents. The resident cares for all patients under the direct supervision of an attending or fellow intensivist in residence in collaboration with the surgical team and ICU staff. During this month-long rotation, residents learn to manage patients on multiple vasopressors, intraaortic balloon counterpulsation, and ventricular assist devices. This is a valuable opportunity to gain comprehensive experience in the perioperative, non-OR based management of cardiac surgical patients. Call is q3.
