Trauma remains the leading cause of mortality and morbidity for individuals younger than 40 years of age.
Organized trauma systems with specialized centers devoted to the evaluation and treatment of trauma are
effective in reducing rates of death and disability associated with injury.
The surgical critical care service provides consultative services for surgical patients in the intensive care
units, giving experience in hemodynamic monitoring, ventilator management, nutritional support, sepsis,
and organ failure. The section is actively involved in cardiogenic, hemorrhagic and septic shock research,
investigation of L-arginine metabolism after trauma, and lymphatic function in shock states.
