Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU)

For cardiac patients who need intensive care for conditions involving the heart, lungs, or airways, the American Hospital provides a specialized intensive care facility that is fully equipped to deliver exceptional services that ensure our patient's safety and speedy recovery.

Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU):

Cardiac intensive care pertains to the specialized and systemic management of patients afflicted with severe cardiovascular conditions, encompassing both cardiovascular and cardiac illnesses. Globally, cardiac ailments rank among the main causes of mortality. At American Hospital Dubai, an intensive care unit has been established to treat patients with critical cardiac conditions and prevent mortality from these conditions. Patients with critical cardiac conditions are the sole focus of the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (Cardiac ICU), which is committed to delivering round-the-clock, comprehensive, and thorough care. To provide patients with optimal outcomes amidst their critical circumstances, our clinical operation consists of continuous surveillance, individualized patient attention, and family-focused assistance. Moreover, the cardiac surgery ICU delivers rehabilitation programs to assist patients in their recovery after the operation or surgery.

The following conditions are treated and managed at the dedicated ICU for cardiac patients: 

  • Congenital heart disease: Treating individuals with heart conditions present at birth, ensuring specialized care for optimal health.

An Intensive Cardiac Care Unit (ICCU) specializes in treating patients with heart ailments, whereas an Intensive Care Unit treats patients with a variety of life-threatening diseases. Intensive care, critical care, and cardiac care units all treat individuals with serious illnesses and utilize the same equipment to monitor and care for them.

The distinction between an intensive care unit (ICU) and a cardiovascular intensive care unit (CICU) is that an ICU serves all critically ill and wounded patients, whereas a CVICU focuses on caring for patients who require critical care for heart or lung disorders.

The CICU is a hospital critical care unit that specializes in treating patients with serious cardiac conditions such as AMI, cardiomyopathy, and arrhythmias. These patients are frequently at risk for heart failure and cardiogenic shock.

Medications allow for the treatment of thoracic aneurysms without surgery and are used in conjunction with watchful waiting, which is a time during which your doctor monitors the aortic aneurysm for changes that might necessitate more aggressive therapy.

Arterial and venous grafts are utilized as bypass grafts in the critical coronary care units, with most patients receiving a mix of the two.

Heart valve surgery involves repairing or replacing a valve that is excessively thin or does not shut properly. Valves must function properly to allow blood to flow in the proper direction through your heart. 

A respiratory therapist assists individuals who are experiencing difficulty breathing. Respiratory therapists operate under doctors' supervision and treat a wide spectrum of patients, including preterm newborns with underdeveloped lungs and the elderly with lung problems.
