Work at the Department
The Department of Intensive Care has three organizational units: the Cardiac Surgery Intensive Care Unit, the Vascular Intensive Care Unit, and the Prolonged Intensive Care and Isolation Unit. With 35 patient beds equipped with state-of-the-art hemodynamic monitoring devices and mechanical ventilation devices, it is one of the largest intensive care units in the country and the region. The main focus is on dedicated, twenty-four-hour care for patients through nurturing teamwork and joint decision-making on optimal treatment. Each member of the medical team has special responsibilities, thus giving a unique contribution to the successful treatment of patients. Intensive care physicians are the leaders of our medical team. Intensivists are medical doctors who have mastered the skills of treating patients in critical condition through many years of education and practical work. A nurse is in charge of managing one or two patients, which enables close monitoring and early recognition of any changes in the patient’s condition. Furthermore, the cooperation with physiatrists and physiotherapists ensures early activation of patients several times a day, which results in accelerated postoperative recovery. The implementation of protocols for monitoring and reducing postoperative pain further improves patient comfort and activation. When necessary, experts from various fields from the country and abroad are consulted for patients in the most difficult condition, all in order to achieve the best possible treatment outcome. Special attention is paid to providing detailed information to family members about the course of treatment.
