Elderly People with life-threatening illnesses, including chronic or severe pulmonary disorders and other medical conditions, often require the attention of a team of specially-trained health care providers in an intensive care unit. These patients are cared for and monitored around-the-clock with a range of sophisticated equipment, such as breathing machines, feeding tubes and catheters, to support their organs. Among the most common pulmonary conditions we treat are respiratory failure and infections like pneumonia. Advanced therapies include mechanical ventilation and continuous renal replacement therapy. Geriatric ICU is a medical center for seriously elderly ill patients who require complex critical care services.
