Intensive Care

Rooms on the intensive care unit

When your loved one is admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), it can be a very stressful time.  Though some admissions are planned, most are not, and it is quite usual to feel worried and upset.

This website has been created to help answer some of your questions about ICU, and explain what may happen during your loved one’s stay on the unit.

Family dynamics can sometimes be diverse and at times complicated.  The term “relative” is used throughout these webpages to simplify the text rather than to exclude individuals.  This website is aimed at anyone who the patient considers as having a significant role in their life, whether that is a spouse, a relation, a long-term partner, or very close friend.
