CRITICAL CARE MEDICINE
An Critical Care Medicine is a special department of a hospital or healthcare facility that provides Critical Care Medicine, Critical care treatment and Critical Care support. Critical Care units cater to patients with severe and life-threatening illnesses & injuries, which require constant attention, close monitoring and support from highly advanced and specialized equipment and medications in order to ensure and maintain normal bodily functions.
The Critical Care Medicine of United Hospital is staffed by highly trained doctors and nurses who specialize in caring for seriously ill patients. Patients may be transferred directly to the Critical Care Medicine from our Emergency Medicine Department or from a ward if they rapidly deteriorate or immediately after surgery if the surgery is very invasive and the patient is at high risk of complications.
Critical Care Medicine are also distinguished from normal hospital wards by a higher staff-to-patient ratio and access to highly advanced medical resources. Common conditions that are treated within Critical Care Medicine include ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome), trauma, multiple organ failure and sepsis.
In United Hospital, we provide exceptional and specialized personal care for every critical patient on 1:1 basis nursing service, supervised by trained Critical Care Medicine doctors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
