Intensive Care

Each year around 130,000 Australians are admitted to an Intensive Care Unit.

Intensive Care Units (ICU) are equipped to provide advanced and specialised care and close monitoring of our most critically ill patients.

Patients admitted to ICU have often experienced severe trauma, spinal injury, burns and cardiothoracic problems, as well as complex multi-system failure who require life support for an extended period.

The Hospital Research Foundation Group is committed to helping our ICU specialists improve the outcomes of people who present with severe illness and injury, and give them the best chance of a full recovery.
