Abstract

An intensive care unit (ICU) is a specially staffed and equipped, separate and self-contained area of a hospital dedicated to the management and monitoring of patients with life-threatening conditions. Patient demands require staff with special expertise and facilities for the support of vital functions. Careful thought is essential when creating an ICU facility, as each hospital will have its own individual needs and expectations for what should be offered. This article gives an overview of the main points to consider when planning, managing and equipping an ICU.
