Hôpital Sainte-Justine - Université de Montréal DESCRIPTION DU PROGRAMME EN FRANCAIS DESCRIPCION DEL PROGRAMA EN ESPAÑOL SUMMARY The primary responsibility of the junior residents is the management of patients in the PICU. Junior residents are on duty every 4-5 nights or less. Critical care residents are initially considered junior residents, and are reclassified as senior residents after a few months. Senior residents in critical care coordinate the clinical activity of junior residents, and provide 24 hours a day coverage. The call schedule for senior residents is one week on call in three weeks. The PICU of Sainte-Justine Hospital admits approximately 1 200 patients each year, with more than 65 % requiring mechanical ventilation. The most frequent admissions to the unit dealt with in the unit include head trauma (± 50/year), polytrauma (± 50), tetralogy of Fallot (± 30), ARDS (± 25), asthma (± 25), status epilepticus (± 25), intoxication (± 20), etc. About 30 patients per year are admitted after a transplantation.
