Organisation and operation of the Intensive Care Unit
Paideia International Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit has 5 beds, equipped with the most modern and advanced mechanical ventilation systems, multi-parameter monitoring tools, integrated infusion pumps, etc.
The patient’s admission to the ICU can be scheduled thanks to a careful
perioperative risk assessment by the anaesthetist during the preanaesthesia examination, or instability of varying degrees, etc., or may be necessary for emergencies/urgent care, varying degrees of instability, etc.
The Intensive Care Unit is managed 24/7 by anaesthetist resuscitators and professional intensive care nurses.
Admission to intensive care aims to stabilise the cardio-respiratory system, provide support in the case of organ failure, artificial nutrition (parenteral or enteral) and control infection, by means of targeted actions, advanced treatments and
The anaesthetist resuscitator also implants devices for medium- to long-term treatment (Port-a-Cath, PICC, CICC, FICC, Midline, etc.) and performs ultra-specialised treatments for pain management.
Decisions are made collectively through discussions with all the specialists involved in intensive care: surgeons, infectious disease specialists, cardiologists, radiologists, neurologists, internists, haematologists.
Even in intensive care, ERAS protocols (Enhanced Recovery After Surgery) are followed in most cases: early mobilisation and nutrition, management of post-operative pain and nausea, etc.
