Intensive Care

The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) research group is a multi-disciplinary group that facilitates many types of research that affect the care of critically ill children. The group consists of the PICU staff, PICU fellows, critical care nursing researchers, and a dedicated PICU research coordinator. The research done by this group includes a wide range of research types, from data base research to randomized controlled trials to knowledge translation. The overall aim of the PICU research group is to improve the care provided to critically ill children. Significant areas of research include understanding how various hormones, such as cortisol or vitamin D, affect the course of critical illness; the role of medical response teams in improving outcomes; ways to optimize the organ donation process; and the consent process in critical care.
