In my Trauma/SICU we get a lot of closed head injuries which means bolts, paralytics, and frequent neuro checks. We're also the general surgical ICU (we have an 8 bed CV where all the hearts go) so we get lots of open bellies, complex wounds (no major burns though), chest surgeries (if there is no room in CV), and ortho. Lots and lots of ortho because of the traumas we get. We also get medical overflow if needed. Because of how complex trauma pts can be they tend to hang out long, get trachs and pegs, and have multiple, multiple surgeries and wounds. I've only been in SI for 6 months but I love it. CV and MI can get really boring to me even with the interesting patho, but there's not a ton of hands on work to do. I love getting my hands dirty with lots of wounds.
