Four anesthesiologists working on a patient in the OR.

We care for patients in the various intensive care units (ICUs) at Yale New Haven Hospital. Our physicians are board-certified in both anesthesiology and critical care medicine, and many have added qualifications in transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), testing that produces pictures of a patient’s heart using sound waves.

We provide care for patients with complex surgical procedures, trauma, transplantations (heart, liver, kidney and pancreas), ventricular assistance device implantations, coronary artery bypass grafting and major vascular and thoracic surgery as well as thoracoabdominal aneurysm repair. In the Medical ICU, we care for a wide spectrum of patients including those with sepsis, pneumonia and stroke.
