CRITICAL CARE

 

The UK Division of Critical Care in the Department of Emergency Medicine is dedicated to ensuring quality critical care from the time patients enter the emergency department to the time they leave the department and are transported to the ICU. We are dedicated to comprehensive critical care, from neuro-intensive care to airway emergencies, sepsis, post-arrest care, advanced hemodynamic monitoring, critical care ultrasound, and beyond.

 

MISSION

  • To educate residents and physicians about state-of-the-art critical care as relevant to the Emergency Department

  • To improve the care of patients in the first minutes to hours of their critical illness

  • To improve the care of patients boarding in the ED, awaiting an ICU bed

  • To collaborate with colleagues in Critical Care throughout the healthcare system

Beginning July 1, 2021, The UK Division of Critical Care is proud to sponsor residents interested in pursuing a career in critical care through the UK EM Critical Care Track.  The purpose is To provide emergency medicine residents the opportunity to become more adept in management of critically ill patients and be well prepared and competitive for critical care fellowship.  Residents who complete the emergency medicine critical care track will earn a letter of completion at their graduation.
 

The track includes:

  • One on one mentoring with Critical Care Faculty
