trauma ICU 


An ICU that supports the care needs of trauma victims after initial surgical management, by monitoring vital signs, as well as controlling infection and optimising nutrition, both of which impact on morbidity and mortality.

Penetrating trauma is best managed in TICUs, which have the kit and personnel trained to care for complex multi-trauma patients.

Synonyms STICU, surgical trauma ICU, trauma intensive care unit
