Home ICU SetUp

There might be times when it so happens that a patient requires the facilities of an Intensive Care Unit for a long duration. This can prove to be taxing, both monetarily and emotionally, especially for the immediate family members. The patient is happier at home and healing can happen without the threat of hospital-acquired infections. This is where we can step in, and set up an ICU at home.

What does it include

ICU at home setup mainly comprises of the following:

  • Critical Care Nurse: The most significant member of the ICU team at home is the critical care nurse, who will take care of the patient's daily medical needs like giving medicines, consulting the doctor, administering injections, checking daily progress and handling all medical equipment. An experienced critical care nurse makes a major difference in the recovery of a patient. 

  • Medical Equipment: An ICU setup at home requires technologically advanced medical equipment. This equipment varies from patient to patient. Some of the most commonly used medical equipment includes an IV stand, para monitor, oxygen cylinder, suction machine, alpha mattress, nebulizer, DVT pump etc.

  • Bed Sore Management: Bedsores, if not paid attention to, can result in a severe infection for the patient and hinder the recovery process.  Thus, proper bedsore management includes a change of dressing 2-3 times a day and proper use of the alpha mattress.

  • Physiotherapy: Physiotherapy helps to improve the mobility of the body.
