Intensive Care Unit is a department which ensures the patients stay alive with many different devices, many different medications and practices which support lives of the patients who are in danger of death due to any disease.
General Intensive Care Units in our hospital are equipped with high-technology equipment. In our units, the devices such as high-tech products, artificial respiration devices and monitors in which the vital functions are monitored are used as life-support systems. Besides, the medicines applied in this unit are very significant medications which are very powerful, far beyond the usual and familiar drugs, and it is vital that they are applied carefully. Under this responsibility, we have a team of physician, nurses and other staff members who are specially trained and experienced in intensive care in order to ensure the complete care of the critical patients and to make them stay alive.
