Should I use a CriticalSection on WriteFile calls?

I have an application in Windows CE that creates multiple threads that can at any time make a call to a log function that uses a WriteFile call. Should I use a CriticalSection around the WriteFile call and/or all the internals of the api that uses the WriteFile function or does WriteFile handle the proper sequence when multiple threads call it?

Thanks
