Indications Of Patients Who Need To Be Treated In The ICU?
Good afternoon. Does it determine whether the patient is eligible to enter the ICU Room or not depends on the decision of the anesthetist? I was confused because the lung doctor’s decision suggested that the patient be treated at the ICU while the anesthesiologist said that the patient still did not really need to be treated at the ICU. please discuss the details about the ICU room, how come the lung doctor and the anesthesiologist can disagree.
Hello, Daeng Aris. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Intensive care unit (ICU) is a special room in the hospital for the treatment of patients with certain conditions that require supervision and special medical equipment (for example: monitor vital signs, ventilators, infusions with special pumps). Generally, indications of care in the ICU are worsening conditions or malfunctioning of organs that cause patients to need to be treated with special medical equipment and close monitoring. Examples of conditions that cause patients to be treated in the ICU include:
Severe infections, such as sepsis, pneumonia with the threat of respiratory failure Organ dysfunction, for example: heart attack, stroke, kidney failure Postoperative care Severe trauma, for example: burns, severe head injury The decision to treat patients in the ICU is determined by doctor based on medical indications. Generally care of patients in the ICU room also requires consultation with anesthetists, especially those in charge of the subspecialty of intensive care. Patient care decisions in the ICU can be discussed by the doctor in charge of patient care with doctors from other specialized fields involved in patient care. We advise you to consult with the doctor in charge of patient care to discuss a detailed plan for patient management.
