The General Intensive Care Unit is intended to care for patients from the internal medicine departments, most of whom are on ventilators, trauma and terror victims, patients following major surgery, and children who need to be on ventilators.
Every year around 600 people are hospitalized in the Unit. Of them, 40% are hospitalized due to internal illnesses, and 60% after major surgery or are trauma victims.
The Unit is made up of 13 treatment units. Each unit includes the patient’s bed, an invasive and non-invasive monitoring system (blood pressure, pulse rate, respiration rate, and oxygen saturation), an advanced respiratory support system, peripheral intravenous catheter systems, systems for advanced treatment of renal failure, for plasma exchange treatments, etc.
During hospitalization in the Unit, the patient and/or his family can meet with the multidisciplinary staff at the Unit – a social worker and physiotherapist.
