Intensive Care Services
Our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is dedicated to patients who have a severe medical illness, or who have had major complex surgery and require monitoring and treatment. Usually, patients in the ICU will have – or be at risk of developing -- a life-threatening illness or complication. We provide the necessary medical expertise and facilities to support the body’s vital functions.
We can supply:
- advanced cardio-vascular support (including ECMO)
- invasive monitoring
- mechanical ventilation support
- point-of-care coagulation testing
- procedural services
- renal replacement therapy (dialysis)
- tracheostomy insertion and management.
The Prince of Wales Private Hospital ICU is a fully-accredited Tertiary level teaching hospital ICU. It is staffed by Intensive Care specialist doctors, nursing staff qualified in high-dependency care, and junior medical staff in-training which ensures a very high level of 24/7 onsite medical cover. The team has a consultative approach to patient care, and respects the role of families in this process.
The intensive care service is an extra dimension of patient safety at our Hospital.
