Emergency and Critical Care Medicine

Department of Emergency and Intensive Care Medicine provides a comprehensive approach to emergency care and intensive care. We treat all the patients who come to the outpatient clinic due to sudden injury or illness, burns, or poisoning, as well as patients with severe conditions such as multiple organ failure after major surgery or life-threatening conditions. In addition, we have a role in the operation of the Disaster Medical Management Department (DMM), which aims to provide medical specialists in “disaster medical management,” the comprehensive management from emergency medical care to mid- to long-term health care activities in the event of a large-scale disaster.

Medical services

The Emergency Center/ER has emergency imaging (CT, XR) and three initial treatment rooms, as well as dedicated consultation rooms for internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, and dentistry. The ER is also equipped with dedicated examination rooms for critical care intensive care beds. There is also an EICU (8 beds) in the Inpatient Unit B for intensive care of critically ill patients, and an emergency ward (12 beds) for emergency admission and follow-up care. The Intensive Care Unit includes ICU1 (16 beds) for patients undergoing major cardiac surgery, transplantation, and severe cardiovascular diseases, and ICU2 (18 beds) for postoperative management of high-risk patients. In both depar tments, staf f from this department and related departments work together to provide constant medical care.
