Intensive-care medicine or critical-care medicine is a branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and management of life threatening conditions requiring sophisticated organ support and invasive monitoring.
Apollo Hospitals Bangalore has designated intensive-care areas such as the coronary intensive-care unit (CCU) for heart disease, medical intensive-care unit (MICU), surgical intensive-care unit (SICU), cardiothoracic intensive care unit (CTICU) for post cardiothoracic surgery care, neonatal intensive-care unit (NICU) and High dependency unit (HDU) for patients requiring less intensive care.
The critical care unit of Apollo Hospitals is manned by a multidisciplinary team of experts using state of the art equipments and procedures to manage Patients requiring intensive care.
Intensive care is usually offered to patients who may require support for instability (hypertension/hypotension), airway or respiratory compromise (such as ventilator support), acute renal failure, potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmias, or the cumulative effects of multiple organ failure, more commonly referred to now as multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. They may also be admitted for intensive/invasive monitoring, such as the crucial hours after major surgery when deemed too unstable to transfer to a less intensively monitored unit.
