ICU

The ICU, or intensive care unit, is the department of the hospital where critically ill patients receive treatment, specialized care and close monitoring by a multidisciplinary medical team.

Intensive care needs personalized and compassionate care, and we have all that and more in one convenient location.

The intensive care unit (ICU) at HCA Florida University Hospital provides enhanced monitoring and services to treat people with critical conditions in Broward County. Our specialized staff uses advanced medical technology and is available 24/7 to provide stabilization and support. We are committed to providing compassionate care and keeping patients and their families fully informed throughout their time in the ICU.

Our intensive care services

The ICU team at our hospital is equipped to treat the most seriously affected and medically unstable patients.

People may need intensive care for:

  • Heart conditions, such as very low or high blood pressure, arrhythmias or heart attacks
  • Lung and breathing conditions, such as acute asthma or severe pneumonia
  • Neurological conditions, such as strokes, seizures and spinal cord injuries
  • Recovery from intensive surgery
  • Recovery from traumatic injuries
  • Serious infections, such as sepsis

Advanced intensive treatment

Our goal is to ensure patients admitted to the ICU receive advanced medical care from a specially trained staff of ICU doctors and nurses. Once admitted to the ICU, a team of specialists will decide on the most effective treatment options. If a patient is conscious and of sound mind, they will be directly involved in deciding on a treatment plan.

Medical monitoring

Patients in the ICU are usually monitored by at least one piece of advanced equipment, such as a heart trace or ventilator. Our specially trained staff of doctors and nurses monitor each patient around the clock. With advanced, 24/7 monitoring technology, the staff will be alerted if a patient needs immediate attention.
