The Department of Intensive Care Medicine
The Department of Intensive Care Medicine cares for patients who, due to disease, accident or surgery, require intensive medical and nursing treatment, and close and consistent monitoring. This is provided by a specialist team (nurses and physicians) together with specialist physicians in all areas of expertise. Extensive technical equipment such as ventilators, infusion pumps, monitoring systems, etc. are used to monitor and maintain vital body functions. This equipment, in conjunction with an assessment of the patient's individual situation, provides the attending specialist team with information about the patient's state of health, and meets the safety needs of patients, relatives and carers.
