Spire St Anthony's, where I perform many of my operations, offers level 3 critical care (intensive care), allowing the hospital to specialise in complex procedures which are simply not available from other providers.
The dedicated critical care unit at Spire St Anthony's allows us to perform advanced complex surgery, giving you peace of mind that you will receive round the clock care after surgery.
Level 3 critical care is provided in an eight-bed intensive care unit where the most seriously ill patients are nursed on a 1:1 ratio. There is a resident anaesthetist and the service is under the overall clinical direction of a team of consultant intensivists who provide 24 hour on-call cover for patients.
What does Critical Care Level 3 mean?
Critical care is classified into three levels defined by varying amounts of medical expertise and organ monitoring and support (normal ward care is designated Level 0).
Level 3 (previously referred to as intensive care) is the highest level providing
care for patients in need of advanced respiratory monitoring and support,
monitoring and support of two or more organ systems, or patients with
chronic impairment of one or more organ systems who require support for
an acute reversible failure of another organ system.
St Anthony's eight-bed intensive care unit gives one-to-one care and support.
