Toronto Western Hospital ICU - Educational Materials
Resources Specific to TWH MSNICU
These resources are specific to clinical situations you may encounter in the TWH MSNICU. They are intended for ICU fellows or residents with substantial previous ICU exposure. For residents new to the ICU, we recommend focusing your learning on the general ICU concepts above.
We care for a large number of critically ill patients with acute and complex neurological problems in the TWH MSNICU: strokes, intracerebral hemorrhage and subarachnoid hemorrhage, status epilepticus and acute spinal cord injuries. Determination of death by neurological criteria and management of the organ donor is also a focus of local expertise and you may gain exposure to these unique patients in the MSNICU.
