Various kinds of tools in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit)

The ICU room (Intensive Care Unit) is a room in a hospital that is used to treat patients in low awareness. Such patients should receive a robust monitoring and strict monitoring. Therefore, this room is equipped with a full range of complete health equipment. Here are some examples of health equipment in the ICU room.

Patient Monitor / Hospital Monitor Arms

 This tool is used to monitor the physical condition of patients in real time, such as heart rate, breathing, blood oxygen levels, ECG and others. hospital monitor arms is set up so that existing data can be connected to the monitor in central monitoring so that when there is a drastic change to the condition of the patient will be resolved quickly.


 Ventilator is a tool used to assist breathing when interference occurs in the patient’s breathing. This tool can replace the function of the respiratory organs of the lungs – the lungs. The tool is used when the respiratory condition in the patient is severely impaired.


Defibrillator is a tool used to provide heart shock. This tool is used for help when the patient stops hearts. Or heart in ventricular fibrillation or atrial fibrillation condition where the heart vibrates irregularly but can not pump blood.

Conditions like these can not be tolerated, the heart is shocked with a certain amount of electrical energy stimulus given to the patient’s chest through a paddle electrode. This is almost the same as restarting the heart. Makes the heart beat again with a normal beat.

Oxygenation Unit

Inside the ICU room, Oxygen is a mandatory requirement. Usually patients with this critical condition need oxygen to help breathing. For this reason, the oxygenation unit is usually the oxygen tube and the equipment is provided in this room. But in large hospitals for oxygen units are usually already installed in the room.

 With the equipment in this space, it is expected that the patient’s condition can be treated and monitored intensive. After the patient’s condition improves with significant progress then the patient will usually be transferred to the inpatient room.
