Service in ICU

In ICU the patients are cared for by trained physicians, nurses, and respiratory therapists. These persons in ICU are specialized in caring for critically ill patients. ICUs are different from general hospital care as the patients are highly cared for and the staff patient ratio is higher. Rather than in ICU, advanced medical access is not routinely available elsewhere.

Conditions like acute respiratory distress syndrome, septic shock, and other life-threatening conditions are treated with ICU support. Patients may be referred directly from an emergency department to ICU if they rapidly deteriorate. Even if they are immediately after surgery, they will be shifted to ICU to avoid complications.
