Intensive care units cater to patients with severe and life threatening illnesses and injuries, which require constant, close monitoring and support from specialist equipment and medications in order to ensure normal daily functions.
R.S Neuro & Multispeciality Hospital is equipped with 10 bedded ICU and is staffed by highly trained doctors and nurses who are specialized in caring for critically ill patients. ICUs are also distinguished from normal hospital wards by a higher staff-to-patient ratio and access to advanced medical resources and equipment that is not routinely available elsewhere.
Neurological intensive care unit (NeuroICU): Patients here are treated for aneurysms, brain tumors, stroke, rattlesnake bites and post surgical patients who have undergone various neurological surgeries and require hourly neurological exams. Many nurses who work within these units have neurological intensive care certifications. Once the patients are more stable and off the ventilator, they are transferred to a neurological care unit.
Trauma intensive care unit (Trauma ICU): These are found only in hospitals certified in Trauma and have a dedicated Trauma Emergency Department equipped with a team of surgeons, nurses, respiratory therapists, and radiological staff.
Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU): A specialized service in larger hospitals that provides inpatient care for critically ill patients on surgical services. As opposed to other ICUs, the care is managed by surgeons trained in critical-care.
