Advancing the practice of nursing, every day.
The Critical Care Resuscitation Unit (CCRU) at the University of Maryland Medical Center R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center is a one of a kind unit which specializes in resuscitation of the adult critically-ill, non-trauma patient being transferred from outside facilities for tertiary care. Using a collaborative team approach, this unit facilitates rapid access to a wide range of services such as neurology, stroke neurology, neurosurgery, cardiac surgery, cardiology, acute care emergency surgery, vascular, soft tissue, and transplant.
As a nurse in the CCRU, you will provide care to critically ill, non-trauma, medical and surgical patients who need immediate resuscitation and stabilization. Patients commonly seen but are not limited to neurological, surgical, medical and/or cardiac emergencies, aortic dissection, septic shock and multi-system organ failure.
The collaborative team approach supports rapid clinical evaluation, diagnostic imaging, and resuscitative interventions. Management of resuscitative interventions such as invasive hemodynamic monitoring, continuous renal replacement therapy, extraventricular drains (EVD), intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation devices (IABP), extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), and resuscitative endovascular occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) are common when providing nursing care for patients in the CCRU.The University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), a designated Magnet facility, we are a team. Nurses and doctors, specialists and therapists, work shoulder-to-shoulder to give our patients the care they deserve.
