CARDIAC CARE UNIT AT PROMED HOSPITAL

Heart diseases are one of the leading causes of death in men and women. From sudden attacks to blocked arteries, heart illnesses encompass a wide range of symptoms. Some of these illnesses develop without any symptoms, do not go on their own, and worsen over time. Such illnesses require expert care and medical intervention. This is why we need a Cardiac Care Unit (CCU)!

WHAT IS CARDIAC CARE UNIT (CCU)?


A Cardiac Care Unit, also known as Coronary Care Unit (CCU) or Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) is a hospital ward specially designed and dedicated to treating a variety of acute cardiac issues and disorders that demand constant monitoring and treatment.

Some of the patients who may need to be admitted to a Cardiac Care Unit are those who:

-have had Heart Attacks

-have unstable Angina

-have Cardiac Dysrhythmia/ Arrhythmia

-are recovering from Coronary Bypass Surgery

-have decompensated heart failure

-have severe heart failure

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INTENSIVE CARE UNIT (ICU) & CARDIAC CARE UNIT (CCU)

When a patient is too unwell to be admitted to a regular floor or nursing unit, they are

 

generally admitted to Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) as the name suggests is a separate unit for intensive care or facility that provides round-the-clock monitoring and intensive nursing care.

Patients in the Intensive Care Unit are frequently on a mechanical ventilator (the ventilation machine that allows you to breathe), are on a variety of medications, and require hourly assessments by dedicated medical professionals, staff, and nurses.

The Cardiac Care Unit (CCU) is a more specialized ward that allows only those patients that are battling with cardiac issues. Because people in a Cardiac Care Unit require specialist testing, these units are usually equipped with facilities to conduct various tests within the ward such as:

-Blood tests,

-Electrocardiograms,

-Echocardiograms,

-Chest X-rays

In simple words, a Cardiac Care Unit (CCU) focuses on treating patients with heart problems, while an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) focuses on providing care for all the patients suffering from a wide range of life-threatening conditions.
