Division of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care

Anaesthetics enables care and treatment of critically ill patients.

At the Division of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care,

our research and education focus on peri-operative and intensive care. The academic unit is closely linked to the clinical department of Perioperative Medicine and Intensive Care (PMI) at Karolinska University Hospital in Flemingsberg. The patients we treat need anaesthesia and pain control to undergo advanced surgery or are treated in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for critical illness often accompanied by organ failure.

Our RESEARCH is driven by clinical problems and questions around advanced surgery and in the critically ill. Current research aims to improve understanding of circulatory and metabolic stress during critical care and surgery, develop advanced risk analysis in aged surgical and ICU patients and improve patient’s safety by studying the effects of different pedagogic approaches.

Our EDUCATION is at the basic, advanced and research level and involves the training of medical students, specialist, specialist nurses and PhD students. We are involved in the basic training but also have specialist courses.
