Vitamin D - Critical Care Research

Intensivists at CHEO study the role of vitamin D in children who are hospitalized and severely ill. Their research has recently demonstrated that lower levels of vitamin D worsen illness severity and prolong the length of stay in the Intensive Care Unit.

Current and future research will focus on how to best optimize the vitamin D status of children admitted to the intensive care unit through pre-illness supplementation and post-illness rapid restoration strategies.

Our team is proud of its research partnerships with other specialists in this field of study, including:
  • Lauralyn McIntyre (The Ottawa Hospital)
  • Dean Fergusson (The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute)
  • Karin Amrein (Medical University of Graz, Austria)
  • Hope Weiler (McGill University)
