Early intervention team (critical care)
Even before pioneering Early Goal-Directed Therapy, HFH has been at the forefront of EM Critical Care for many years. During the EIT elective residents spend their time taking care of the most critically ill patients coming through the ED. They receive extensive evidence-based training in managing every aspect of critical care under the supervision of highly trained ED critical care faculty, many of whom are internationally recognized pioneers in their field. The curriculum incorporates novel drug therapy, hemodynamic assessment, fluid resuscitation, vasopressor selection and management, invasive and non-invasive ventilation strategies and cardiac ultrasound.
