Who does require ICU treatment?
Patients suffer from severe injuries or illnesses like burning, heart attack, severe bleeding, kidney ailment, respiratory failure, serious injuries, and sepsis. These patients are taken special care of by an intensivist and the specially trained team in the critical care unit.
Advancement in the critical care unit
With the advancement in the field of medicine, critical care units are also getting more advanced. Here the critical patients get the best treatment with the help of cutting-edge technologies. The team in the critical care unit always offers highly specialized services on time to the patients.
At present, an ICU is led by a skilled intensivist and a team. They follow strict guidelines and work culture to deliver the utmost benefits to the patients. The team in the critical care unit also provides service 24×7 hours and continuously keeps on checking the patient’s health condition.
Every intensive care unit has now been made advanced by placing cutting-edge equipment so that patients can get the best support. This equipment is helpful to check the condition of the patients every moment. Advanced pieces of machinery have also been added to every intensive care unit to treat cardiac patients. These types of machinery are optimum glycemic control and albumin fluid resuscitation.
CFTR or Cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator has also made its entry in many intensive care units. This equipment offers great benefits to those patients who are suffering from CF or Cystic fibrosis.
