Burn ICU

The Burn ICU rotation provides CBY and CA-1 residents the opportunity to become competent in the anesthetic management of burns and severe wounds.

ICUCBY residents will learn basic anesthetic management skills for the burn patient. CA-1 residents will be able to perform a safe, well-planned general anesthetic on a critically ill patient undergoing a complex surgical procedure from induction through emergence. Specifically, residents rotating though the Burn ICU will develop competency in:

  • Fluid management;
  • Acid base management;
  • OR ventilation management;
  • Safe positioning of burn patients for surgery;
  • Appropriate anesthetic techniques, including general and conscious sedation, difficult airway management, and LMA indications;
  • Tracheostomy management;
  • Bronchoscopy;
  • Safe transport of critically ill patients.

Residents will develop proficiency in:

  • Postoperative pain control;
  • Intraoperative and postoperative fluid strategies;
  • Indications for and timing of blood product administration;
  • Vascular access techniques in patients with limited available sites;
  • Anesthetic risk assessment.
