The interdisciplinary Intensive Care Unit is the center for the acute treatment and postoperative care of the critically ill. There is a differentiated, central monitoring system for observing respiration and cardiovascular parameters, specialized drug therapy, parenteral nutrition, and when necessary, the use of invasive or non-invasive mechanical ventilation.
All necessary instrumental examination methods (ultrasound of the various organs, endoscopy) are available.
Emergency cases can come to the 24-hour Emergency Services at all times, and when monitoring is necessary or the condition is critical, can be admitted to the Intensive Care Unit. Rescue services and ambulances regularly arrive at our hospital. Also in the surgical area, monitoring in the Intensive Care Unit is carried out according to necessity after prolonged surgery and respectively, serious pre-existing illnesses.
Indications for admittance to the Intensive Care Unit are e.g. life-threatening cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack or cardiac arrhythmias, critical hypertension, severe infection, metabolic crisis (diabetes mellitus), severe respiratory distress, stroke or unconsciousness.
Disorders occurring during pregnancy or birth can also be a reason for a transfer to the Intensive Care Unit.
The Intensive Care team is composed of experienced physicians from the Internal Medicine and Anesthesiology Departments. This interdisciplinary collaboration guarantees the patient that he/she will receive comprehensive care during a critical health situation. It is also just as important to us that our team includes experienced intensive care nurses who provide sympathetic and qualified care.
