Extract

Speaking for the remarkable number of mentees of Lawrence D. H. Wood, MD, PhD, who are productive and creative contributors to the field of critical care medicine, of which Dr Wood is a primary founder, I feel both delighted and humbled to offer some thoughts about this extraordinary man. Many others could and should add their own reflections on knowledge and inspiration received from him, and I acknowledge this as but a single step in that process. I believe that all of us regard Dr Wood as a leader in applying rigorous science to test hypotheses or answer questions arising at the bedside of critically ill patients.
