The 19-bed MedStar Georgetown University Hospital Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) is staffed by highly dedicated and experienced critical care physicians and nurses. Surgical specialties include transplant (liver, kidney, pancreas, and small bowel), thoracic surgery, plastic-reconstructive surgeries, vascular surgery, abdominal and ear, nose and throat surgery. The SICU is equipped to provide patients with state-of-the-art therapies at the bedside (continuous renal replacement), advanced hemodynamic monitoring, complex mechanical ventilation modes, and medication infusions.
All anesthesiology residents will complete two months of ICU experience caring for a variety of critically ill patients during the CA-2 year. This rotation takes place within the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at Georgetown University Hospital.
