Get The Highest Degree Of Patient Care
The intensive care unit at Philadelphia Hospitals is a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary specialty. It is created especially for managing patients with established or impending life-threatening organ failure, the ability to partially maintain and, if necessary, fully replace the function of several failing organ systems, especially the kidneys, heart, and lungs.
Our medical center’s Intensive Care Unit is a separate, self-contained space with advanced, specialized equipment for close observation, prompt treatment, and frequently prolonged care of patients with severe organ dysfunction.
We are devoted to the management and ongoing observation of patients with serious illnesses. The goal of our intensive care is to maintain vital functions to stop further physiological deterioration, lower mortality, and prevent morbidity in critically sick patients.
- Health-care intense unit : Adult patients with medical illnesses needing regular observation, specialized monitoring, and medical care are the focus of the medical intensive care unit. Among them are cancer, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, drug overdose, respiratory failure, sepsis, and diabetic ketoacidosis.
- Intensive care unit for children: In the pediatric intensive care unit, critically unwell children are treated. The pediatric critical care unit also treats kids who have had surgery and are in danger of getting worse.
- Critical care unit for surgery : The management of postoperative patients, including those who have had large abdominal surgeries, craniotomy patients, thoracotomy patients, unstable multiple trauma patients, and any surgical patient who needs ongoing observation or life support, is the focus of the surgical critical care unit.
- Critical care unit for newborns:The neonatal intensive care unit manages premature, high-risk, and severely unwell infants. The neonatal intensive care unit also treats newborns with congenital diseases and birth problems.

Various methods that keep people alive when critical organs are failing are referred to as life support. When someone uses the term "life support," they typically mean a mechanical ventilator, also referred to as a "breathing machine." By forcing air into the patient's lungs, mechanical ventilation aids breathing. A tube that enters the patient's mouth and windpipe connect the mechanical ventilator to the patient. Patients who don't require mechanical ventilation may only require an oxygen mask covering their mouths and noses. Another type of life support is dialysis, which removes toxins from the blood when the kidneys fail.
A stressful and distressing incident can cause post traumatic stress disorder, a mental health condition. After a critical illness, 10–20% of patients experience it. Patients may experience anxiety, and nightmares, avoid visiting medical facilities, and disengagement.
Any sickness that puts one's life in danger demands urgent attention. The causes of the critical disease include poisoning, surgical issues, and early birth, to name a few.
The long-term care of individuals whose illnesses pose a life-threatening risk is known as critical care. These patients are treated in the short term by emergency medicine. The hospital's intensive care unit (ICU) is where patients are transported after being stabilized by doctors and nurses in the emergency room.
