SURG 5008 - Clinical Management of the Critically Ill/Injured Patient

The student will be involved in the care of patients on the Burn/Trauma Service. These patient frequently have injuries and functional disruption of multiple organ systems and therefore offer opportunities not only in learning management of burns and trauma, but also critical care. Cardiovascular, pulmonary and renal physiology are stressed and the frequent use of mechanical ventilatory support and invasive cardiovascular monitoring provide extensive experience in care of the critically ill. The interrelationship of anatomy, pathophysiology, biochemistry, pharmacology and microbiology is studied in relationship to the management of burns, trauma and critical care. Selected readings, didactic presentations, video taped lectures, perceptually instruction and clinical interface are all used as teaching methodology. These students participate as an active member of the patient care team.
