Intensive Care Units
These unique and nationally recognized intensive care units cares for severely traumatized and critically ill patients referred throughout the Intermountain West.
In addition to the private physicians and consultants who regularly admit to the units, full-time critical care faculty physicians oversee the critical care training of fellows, residents, interns and students in the fields of medicine, anesthesia, surgery, family practice medicine and nursing.
Because of the units' commitment to education and research outcome studies, the Shock/Trauma and Respiratory ICUs have gained wide acceptance as a premier intensive care unit in providing critical care to the seriously ill or injured.
Consultation regarding the care or the transport of the critically ill or injured can be obtained 24 hours a day by contacting the on-call, full-time critical care faculty physician through Life Flight.
Follow-up regarding patients admitted to the Shock/Trauma and Respiratory ICUs can be obtained by directly calling the units and asking for the on-call, full-time critical care faculty physician or the patient's attending nurse.
