with polytrauma, severe neurologic damage, gastrointestinal bleeding, liver failure, intoxication, severe lung diseases, serious infections,

postoperative period of major surgeries and organ or multi-organ failures secondary to severe sepsis and septic shock are treated and cared.

doctors and nurses of coronary intensive care unit closely monitor heart rhythms of inpatients with rhythm problem through

Cardiovascular Surgery Intensive Care Unit

The unit is equipped by bed side monitor system that allows continuous monitoring of all hemodynamic data for patients who are undergone open heart surgery or major vascular surgery.

Pediatric Intensive Care Unit

Critically ill patient implies a person with vital signs impaired enough to cause life threatening risk(s).

Children differ from adults substantially in terms of metabolism, physiology and psychology. Since diseases of pediatric population and their treatment require distinct approaches, critically ill children are treated in pediatric intensive care units.

Critically ill children are treated and monitored using ventilators, monitors and dialysis machines, among others, in pediatric intensive care units.

All laboratory tests are analyzed and imaging studies are performed 24/7 for pediatric patients who stay at pediatric intensive care unit.

All critically ill children are admitted to our units and any and all monitoring, follow-up, treatment and care are performed by staff of our department immediately after the patient is admitted.
