The cardiac intensive care staff generally treats cardiac patients suffering from single-system or multi-system problems. The variety of patients treated includes patients with acute coronary syndromes, life threatening arrhythmias, following resuscitation due to cardiac arrest and following complex invasive cardiac procedures.
The unit is characterized by constant bedside cardiac monitoring using advanced equipment. 70-90 patients are treated in the unit every month.
The nurses team took the intensive care course.
The unit has eight beds with personal monitors and oxygen panels, UPS and an emergency generator.
The telemetry equipment allows observation also outside the patient rooms.
The patient rooms include an option to perform a dialysis.
The unit location enables the direct access of an intensive care ambulance, admitting the patient to the unit or transferring him to the catheterization room, without stalling him in the ER.
Before they are discharged, all patients admitted to the unit are personally guided by the medical and nursing staff:
Cardiac rehabilitation, lifestyle changes and balancing cardiac risk factors.
The intensive care unit participates in a large number of prestigious international clinical studies.
A patient recruited to a study during his admittance time, stays under observation of the doctors and nurses for the entire study period.
