Acute Intensive Care
Saving lives of critically ill patients with their conditions changing by the minute
Our ICU (intensive care unit) provides an environment for the best care, round-the-clock, to control conditions that change by the minute in patients who are critically ill, including after surgery, as well as perinatal and neonatal patients.
ICU system in which all our resources are brought together
Our ICU receives the most critically ill patients regardless of specialty, age, or gender. We receive patients with severe respiratory failure as well as pediatric patients with severe conditions who require advanced medical treatment from other hospitals. Our ICU is one of a few intensive care units for which “the specific intensive care unit fee I” is chargeable. This is only available for the ICU that meets the strict facility standards specified by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare; that is, our ICU is a “super-ICU”. Our ICU is centered around specialist doctors and various professionals who work together as a team, and includes ICT, NST, pharmacists, physiotherapists, medical engineers, and dietitians as well as the doctors in charge and nurses. We provide services at the forefront of medical care as the last line of defense not only for our hospital but also for the community.
HCU (High Care Unit)
HCU takes care of patients who are not critical enough for ICU admission, but require a higher level of care than ordinary wards. Working closely with ICU, a patient's will be transferred to ICU for advanced treatment if their condition worsens. Similarly, once their conditions improve, patients will be transferred back to HCU and ordinary wards.
SCU (Stroke Care Unit)
SCU admits ischemic stroke patients who do not require surgical treatment. Doctors, nurses and occupational therapists work together to administer suitable treatment for such patients, aiming to prevent any further deteioration.
Maternal and Perinatal Care Center
NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit)）
Our hospital can receive neonatal patients 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with a neonatal unit including a NICU.
GCU (Growing Care Unit)
Our GCU admits neonates who outgrow the NICU with a stable respiratory status or those requiring treatment despite a stable respiratory status.
We assist families to prepare for parenting after hospital discharge, while watching over the growth and development of neonates.
MFICU (Maternal Fetal Intensive Care Unit)
Our MFICU provides medical care for high-risk pregnancies, including complication of pregnancy, pregnancy-induced hypertension syndrome, threatened premature labor, and fetal abnormalities.
Achieving emergency medical care to provide reassurance to the community
Our hospital is committed to strengthening cooperation with core hospitals in the eastern Owari medical district and around Nagoya. Based on this, we have a system that enables a rapid response in the event of a wide-area disaster as well as emergencies.
Ready for emergencies 24 hours a day and 365 days a year
All patients transported to our hospital for tertiary emergency medical care have an initial medical examination in the ER. The ER then promptly and accurately judges the medical care required and contacts the relevant divisions. Thus, the ER plays the role of a control tower for emergency medical care.
The ER is responsible for the initial examination of all emergency patients. Medical residents and supervising doctors provide team medical care to review the severity of diseases and the need of emergency treatment. They promptly contact specialists to request an examination when they judge the patients require emergency treatment. A laboratory for the exclusive use of the Emergency and Acute Intensive Care Center is established in the center of the building, aimed at a prompt testing operation. 10 full-time medical technologists, 3 full-time and 13 medical engineers in the laboratory manage the emergency tests and medical devices. In 2014, our ER received approximately 8,300 ambulance transports and approximately 25,000 patients, including those who visited our hospital by a means of transportation other than ambulance.
NCU (Neurological Care Unit)
Our hospital actively adopted minimally invasive treatment in the field of neurosurgery in emergency medical care. We also readily apply endoscopic treatment for stroke, which can reduce the physical burden on patients and thus increase opportunities for treatment of elderly patients who may hesitate to undergo surgery.
ICU (Acute Intensive Care Unit)
Our Acute Intensive Care Unit is responsible for whole body care mainly intended for patients with post-resuscitation encephalopathy, acute drug intoxication, or other conditions in the acute phase and before and after surgery. The Acute Intensive Care Unit also practices whole-body care for patients rapidly falling into a life-threatening situation and employs a high level of physical assessment skills.
(Cardiac Care Unit)
Our CCU receives patients with acute heart diseases such as myocardial infarction and heart failure. Our hospital has built the CCU network of core hospitals around Nagoya while providing training to emergency medical technicians for the triage of acute coronary syndrome, medical management during transport, etc. Through such efforts, we are continuously committed to shortening of the time between selection of the destination hospital and admission to the CCU.
(General Intensive Care Unit)
Our GICU responds to various emergency cases, performing initial treatment and control of post-treatment conditions for transported emergency patients.
