Critical care typically takes place in an intensive care unit (ICU) of a hospital.

Treatments & Technology

To help stabilize your condition and support healing, your care team may recommend:

  • Breathing machines (ventilators) – Push air into the lungs if you are not able to breathe on your own
  • Bronchoscopy – Looks in the airways to find the cause of symptoms or remove a blockage
  • Chest tube – Drains blood or fluids
  • Dialysis – Supports the kidneys by removing harmful substances or waste from the blood
  • Feeding tube – Delivers nutrients to the body when you aren’t able to eat
  • Intravenous (IV) tubes – Send fluids or medicine to the body through a small tube in a vein
  • Medication management – Makes sure the medications you take are safe and effective for you

Rely on our team to regularly communicate with you and your loved ones so you stay up-to-date. Before you leave the hospital, you’ll receive education on how to take care of yourself at home and prevent future problems.
