Compassionate Care While You Sleep


The intensive care units have an excellent patient base and support personnel for research. Many clinical studies are in progress. The large number of patients with very interesting pathologies not only allows for experience, but the ability to complete studies in short periods of time. Our attending physicians are research oriented with projects under way in the ICU and laboratories of the Department of Anesthesiology. Numerous papers based on models of tissue ischemia, coagulation, sepsis, circulation, new modes of ventilation, etc., have been published by our faculty.
