October 25 is Canadian Intensive Care Week. Thank you to our colleagues across UHN's Sprott Surgery and our four ICUs (MSICU, CVICU, CICU, and MSNICU). In the midst of the pandemic these teams have personified the values of this organization. Critical Care patients at UHN require everything from advanced ventilation, technological and hemodynamic support to overcome the complex challenges of transplantation, complex medical and surgical conditions, shock syndrome, and multisystem organ failure. In addition, UHN is a regional resource for ECLS (extracorporeal life support) which means our teams have cared for some of the sickest patients in the country. Our highly skilled interdisciplinary team of nurses, physicians, and respirologists among others, have demonstrated their ability to collaborate across our ICUs and innovate unique solutions in order to provide life-saving interventions.
