Intensive Care Services

The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is dedicated to caring for patients with life-threatening illnesses and complications, and for monitoring potentially life-threatening conditions. It provides special expertise and facilities for the support of vital functions, using the skills of medical, nursing and allied teams.

The Unit offers a full range of intensive care services to all patients, including:

  • invasive monitoring
  • mechanical ventilation support
  • renal replacement therapy (dialysis)
  • advanced cardio-vascular support
  • point-of-care coagulation testing
