Intensive care unit

Intensive care unit (ICU)

Our critical care service supports patients who are in need of more specialised observation and treatment than can be provided in an ordinary ward.

To better understand the kind of procedures that may be used to support patients being cared for in our intensive care units you can view animated videos that explain these medical procedures, in your language.
These ‘explain my procedure’ videos can help support communication and understanding about ICU procedures including:

  • ventilation
  • tracheostomy
  • induced coma
  • and treatment for COVID-19
