The student will be assigned to one of the three house officer teams caring for patients in the Shock-Trauma Unit and Intermountain Respiratory Intensive Care Unit at the LDS Hospital. Cases will be managed by the student with the supervision of the house officers and ICU staff attending. Aggressive ventilatory support and invasive hemodynamic monitoring are frequently used in the care of the patients. Computer support for data collection and manipulation enhances understanding of pathophysiology in these cases. A nineteen hour lecture series focusing on topics in critical care medicine is given on a monthly basis by the attending staff.
