William SIBBALD, Doctor And Educator (1946-2006)
Physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook and Women's College hospitals in Toronto was an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who guided the city through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis and helped alter the nature of intensive-care treatment in Canada
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S6
Toronto -- Bill SIBBALD was an ideas machine. Strategies, suggestions and potential solutions cascaded from his lips at the Ontario teaching hospitals where he built an international reputation, at global medical conferences and around the family dinner table.
His ideas helped to change the face of intensive-care treatment in Canada, to shape the way health care is delivered in Ontario, to guide Toronto through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis of 2003 and to inspire a new generation of critical-care professionals.
Dr. William John SIBBALD was director of critical care at Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario, and a professor at the University of Western Ontario from 1977 until 2000. Then he became physician-in-chief at Toronto's Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre and a professor of medicine at the University of Toronto. In both roles, he was a physician, teacher, leader, mentor and researcher.
"I used to tell people who didn't know him they should ignore something the first time he mentioned it," says Doctor Frank RUTLEDGE, who heads the critical-care programs at Victoria Hospital and Western. "They should pay attention the second time. The third time they should put it at the top of their pile. He threw out so many ideas, if you tried to work on everything the first time it was mentioned, you'd never get anything done." Doctor Steven SHUMAK, deputy physician-in-chief, says many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas involved medical informatics, the application of computers and information systems to improve patient care and education.
Colleagues remember him as gruff but generous, an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who smoked heavily in his early years to burn off excess energy, but who gave it up after an operation for salivary gland cancer. He was an advocate for those he worked with, giving them his undivided attention in private meetings. In the workplace or on the golf course, he strove for perfection, but often interrupted a game to respond to a BlackBerry message. He occasionally told off-colour jokes and he followed hockey religiously, even when out of the country.
Dr. SIBBALD started work before dawn, even on weekends, so he could be home to spend time with his wife and five children. He coached his sons in hockey, attended his children's sporting events and told them all he was their "biggest cheerleader."
Over his career, Doctor SIBBALD wrote about 250 articles and editorials, more than 70 book chapters and some major textbooks on critical care. He was invited to give some 550 lectures in 16 countries. He held many positions with medical and critical-care associations.
Dr. Ron HOLLIDAY, a general surgeon at Victoria Hospital and a professor of surgery at Western, says Doctor SIBBALD was often thinking of issues five or 10 years down the road. And he always knew who to approach to get around the system. "We called it the SIBBALD end run," he says.
Critical-care experts around the world knew him as a friend and a trendsetter. "He was a fantastic scientist and a great clinician respected by all," says Doctor Jean-Louis Vincent, a professor of intensive care at the Free University of Brussels. "He could always ask the right question and raise the appropriate issue in any kind of debate or scientific discussion."
Bill SIBBALD, as his Friends called him, was the middle of three children of Jack SIBBALD, a banker, and Shirley (née STONE) who grew up in a suburb of Guelph, Ontario As a boy, he played basketball, football, badminton and hockey.
Gale KAY, now a retired Presbyterian minister, babysat him when he was about 12. "He was quite clear that he was going to be a doctor," she says, "not that he wanted to be a doctor, but that he was going to be one."
He was graduated from medical school at the University of Western Ontario in 1970 and stayed on to complete a residency in internal medicine in 1974. That was the year he married Connie ECKERSLEY, a nurse he worked with in intensive care.
From 1974 to 1976, he did a fellowship in critical-care trauma at Wayne State University School of Medicine, in Detroit. The specialty was in its infancy in Canada at the time, and he returned to London as one of the country's few experts in the field.
At the time, Victoria Hospital had become "a massive zone of deferred maintenance," according to Doctor David NAYLOR, president of the University of Toronto and a long-time friend. Doctor Adam LINTON, the hospital's physician-in-chief, put the young Doctor SIBBALD in charge of the intensive-care department where he overcame professional turf wars and put together a team of specialists in medicine, surgery and anesthesia. Doctor Trevor LOBB, an anesthetist at the hospital, says Doctor SIBBALD helped change "a glorified recovery room" into a critical-care trauma centre that treated patients flown in by helicopter and that trained fellows who came from around the world. In 1976, he made the news for using an armed forces pressure suit to control massive bleeding in a patient. A year later, he was in the headlines for telling a medical conference in France that the common practice of lowering the head of a critically ill shock victim might actually have detrimental effects.
In one highly publicized incident, Doctor SIBBALD, accompanied by Dr. HOLLIDAY, went to court in the middle of the night seeking permission for a blood transfusion to save the life of a Jehovah's witness boy. The judge bypassed the family's religious objections by making the boy a ward of the court, allowing the procedure to go ahead.
Much of Doctor SIBBALD's research centred on sepsis (disease-causing agents in the blood), trauma, blood substitutes, and ethical issues involving life-support and end of life. In later years, he branched out into the field of health-care policy and delivery.
For many years, he used sheep to study infections in people. "In our research lab at Victoria Hospital, you could hear the sheep baaing," Doctor HOLLIDAY says. Doctor SIBBALD introduced infections into the animals and studied the effects. Then he treated the sheep, so they didn't have to be destroyed.
He served as co-chairman of a Working Group on Critical Care in Ontario, which presented its findings to the province's health ministry in 1991. Over the years, he received many honours, including a distinguished investigator award from the American College of Critical Care Medicine in 1998.
Dr. SIBBALD turned down many job offers in the United States, and in 2000 he moved to Toronto as Sunnybrook's physician-in-chief. That put him on the front lines when many of the patients from the 2003 epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome ended up at Sunnybrook. He threw his back out while dealing with the crisis, so his bed at home became the command post where he kept in contact with officials from hospitals, government and the military.
In one phone call, he told Doctor Tom STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, director of critical care at Toronto's Mount Sinai and University Health Network, that his staff was starting to become ill. "He's a strong man, but he broke down crying," said Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART. "It struck me how soft and sensitive he is."
Two back operations followed. Doctor SIBBALD returned to work after each of them, even though he had to hobble around the hallways.
After the severe acute respiratory syndrome emergency ended, Ontario's ministry of health set up a Critical Care Steering Committee. Doctor SIBBALD and Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART were among its members. Many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas showed up in the report and are now being implemented, Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART says.
In November, 2004, Doctor SIBBALD was diagnosed with colon cancer. He carried on working and, hoping for a remedy, sought treatment at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo. In early September, he was told the end was near. He resigned as Sunnybrook's chief of medicine on September 5 and spent the following week as a patient in the hospital.
Staff members still came to him for advice. Doctor Andreas LAUPACIS, now the director of a research institute at Toronto's Saint Michael's Hospital, asked for his opinion on an upcoming debate. "His eyes lit up," Doctor LAUPACIS says. "His energy came back. He said, 'Look at this article and that article and here's the point I would be making.' "
Dr. SIBBALD went Toronto on September 12. A day later, his fourth grandchild was born in Vancouver. His son Martyn phoned to say the baby would be called William. The next morning Doctor SIBBALD was shown an e-mailed photo of his new namesake. He died later that day.
William John SIBBALD was born in London, Ontario, on June 28, 1946. He died of colon cancer at his Toronto home on September 14, 2006. He was 60. He leaves his wife Connie; children Tammie, Martyn, Robert, Katie and Georgie; four grandchildren; his mother, Shirley, and sisters Nancy DAVIDSON and Susan TAILOR/TAYLOR.
