Critical Care Medicine

The intensivist division of the Department of Anesthesiology cares for patients in the Burn Intensive Care Unit, Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit, Memorial Hermann Southwest Medical/Surgical Intensive Care Unit, Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit (Memorial Hermann—Texas Medical Center), and Shock Trauma Intensive Care Unit (Memorial Hermann—Texas Medical Center). State of the art equipment including transcranial doppler, surface and transesophageal echocardiography (including hTEE), continuous cardiac output monitoring, and thromboelastography are available in all of our facilities.

Multiple consult services are available around the clock (i.e., nephrology, cardiology, infectious diseases, etc.) to ensure that every possible resource is in place to maximize our patient outcomes. Our growing division also hosts one of the most medically and disciplinarily diverse critical care fellowships in the country. Furthermore, the division of critical care is academically productive in applied clinical research. All critical care faculty actively contribute to the training of our critical care fellows.
