The 24-bed CICU is a mixed acuity unit that provides advanced
cardiac care for critically ill patients requiring intensive and
progressive levels of care. The intensive-care level patient
population on this unit consists of unstable pre-heart transplants,
heart failure requiring close monitoring or vasopressor support,
acute MI's, unstable post-interventional cardiology procedures,
post-arrest targeted temperature management, and other patients
requiring invasive hemodynamic monitoring. Medical devices managed
on ICU level patients include intra-aortic balloon pumps,
continuous renal replacement therapy, swan-ganz catheters,
ventricular assist devices, impella pumps, temporary pacemakers and
ventilators. The progressive-care level patient population on this
unit consists of patients requiring vasoactive and anti-arrhythmic
drips, limited hemodynamic monitoring, pre/post cardio-thoracic
surgery (heart transplant, CABG) and post-interventional patients.
The CICU provides a dynamic and multi-disciplinary environment for
nurses seeking knowledge and experience in the cardiology field
where teamwork, ongoing education and superior patient care are
priorities. Nursing assignments are made on a shift-to-shift basis
that takes patient acuity and staff skill level into consideration
to ensure each patient receives proper care. Typical nurse to
patient ratios range from 1:1 or 1:2 for ICU level patients, and
1:3 for PCU level patients.
