People who are very ill or are having any emergency conditions caused by burn or accident injuries are kept in the intensive care unit of a hospital. In the ICU, patients with severe surgical, medial, and trauma conditions receive critical care and are under constant monitoring and close supervision. To normalize bodily functions of the patients, they are often given life support systems. Mostly ICUs have sterile environment to prevent spread of infection that may affect the patient under treatment.
An ICU team consists of specialized and trained professionals like nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists, and others. From expert medical practitioners to advanced medical equipment and resources, the ICU unit of a hospital is well-equipped to serious health conditions which are not possible in any other ward.
