An intensive care unit (ICU), also known as an intensive therapy unit or intensive treatment unit (ITU), or critical care unit (CCU), is a special department of a hospital or health care facility that provides intensive treatment medicine. Intensive care units cater to patients with severe or life-threatening illnesses and injuries, which require constant care, and close supervision from life support equipment, and medication in order to ensure normal bodily functions. The Way-made center is spread over in 50,000 Sqft areas with a ground floor plus three floors.
Each floor has a capacity of 34 ICU beds with a nursing station, counseling room, consultation room, and staff room. They are staffed by highly trained physicians and nurses who specialize in caring for critically ill patients. ICUs are also distinguished from general hospital wards by a higher staff-to-patient ratio and access to advanced medical resources and equipment that is not routinely available elsewhere. Common conditions that are treated within ICUs include acute (or adult) respiratory distress syndrome, hypertension, metastases, and other life-threatening conditions. Patients may be referred directly from an emergency department if required, from a ward if they rapidly deteriorate, or immediately after surgery if the surgery is very invasive and the patient is at high risk of complications.
