Intensive and Intermediate Care Unit
Intensive care unit – this is associated with unpleasant things by many people. Dealing with seriously ill people, especially if they are relatives of close friends, is a challenging situation.
The team of the Intensive Care Unit at Klinikum Landkreis Erding for provides particular guidance and support to patients and their relatives in these challenging times.
In the two closely collaborating Intensive Care Units, patients are taken care of by physicians and nursing staff specially trained in intensive care. There are a total of 31 monitoring units (10 intensive care and 21 monitoring beds) available for intensive care.
Intensive Care Unit
A patient can be transferred to the Intensive Care Unit for various reasons: in the event of life-threatening diseases, cardiovascular failure, respiratory failure, after accidents or extensive and difficult surgery. Since the medical condition that leads to a patient being transferred to the Intensive Care Unit requires especially intensive treatment and attendance, the Intensive Care Unit at Klinikum Erding offers the highest standards. The close collaboration of all professional groups working in the Intensive Care Unit makes it possible to provide patients with optimum medical and nursing care: Particularly physicians and nursing staff specially trained in intensive care, but also physical therapists, functional service staff such as X-ray imaging and endoscopy, ward secretariats and many more people work together to enable patients to recover quickly. They are supported by the state-of-the-art equipment that facilitates the monitoring of patients and contributes to advancing the recovery process. All vital functions are continuously monitored. Cardiovascular parameters are continuously recorded and transferred to a central unit; advanced ventilators supply unconscious patients and those with limited respiratory function with oxygen; precision pumps conduct nutrients and medication through the veins and the gastrointestinal tract of patients; the laboratory results can be checked quickly and reliably at any time.
Intermediate Care Unit
The Intermediate Care Unit takes care of patients who require more intensive care than it is possible on the normal ward as well as to patients whose vital functions need to be monitored more closely.
The Intermediate Care Unit closes the “gap” between the Intensive Care Unit and the normal ward. The Intermediate Care Unit is spatially connected to the Intensive Care Unit.
