Intensive Care Unit

The cardiac intensive care unit comprises 9 beds and has the capacity for complete hemodynamic monitoring, invasive and non-invasive ventilation and all other modern intensive care technologies including mechanical circulatory support and renal replacement therapy. The unit provides round-the-clock care for patients with severe medical problems as well as cardiogenic shock or acute myocardial infarction. The unit also has its own well equipped operating room for implantation of emergency pacemakers, pleural and pericardiac puncture and electrical cardioversion. The cardiac ICU is responsible for round-the-clock monitoring of patients on the cardiac wards and is directly linked with the Division’s systems for telemetry and monitor surveillance. This provides maximal security for the patients in our care. Via the cardiac ICU, the Division of Cardiology is available at all hours for consultation and emergencies both on and off campus.
