The Coronary Care Unit (CCU) of the Heart Center is a 12-bed facility that is supported by a team of experienced nurses, house staff, cardiology fellows who oversee the care and management of all the patients.
The CCU staff cares for patients with acute myocardial infraction and complications including cardiogenic shock, post-infarction angina and congestive heart failure.
We also care for many other critically ill patients suffering from severe cardiomyopathies, valvular heart disease and life threatening arrhythmias.
The length of stay for patients ranges from day care to longer stays. Patients are admitted either through the Hospital Accident and Emergency Department or via the Cardiac Catheterization Lab following angioplasty or other specialised procedures. It is located on the 1st Floor of the Hospital, where the Heart Center is hosted.
