The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Mediclinic City Hospital is a 27-bed inpatient adult multidisciplinary unit which includes three negative pressure isolation beds. The newly installed state of the art monitors and ultramodern Hill-Rom beds allow us to monitor our critically ill patients with even greater precision.
The ICU is equipped to provide care for patients who have suffered a serious illness or have undergone major surgery. Common treated patients include those with ACS, multi system/organ failure, sepsis, G.I. bleeds, infectious diseases, diabetic ketoacidosis, cardiac and respiratory arrest, renal failure, stroke, endocrine abnormalities and obstetric/gynaecological issues. As well as those who have are recovering after different types of surgery or procedures.
As a highly specialised environment, a number of health care professionals work together in a team to address every aspect of our patients’ needs. The team is led by a group of specialist doctors, known as intensivists, who are highly trained in this area, along with registered nurses and allied health workers including, but not limited to, physiotherapists and speech therapists, diabetes educators and dieticians, pain management and anaesthesia technicians.
