Virtual 3D Tour of an ICU

Equipment used by the ICU staff

The hospital rooms in the ICU have a number of medical devices that allow the staff to ensure continuous monitoring of the patients.

It can be very daunting to see the number of machines, screens, alarms and to hear their sound…The windows, doors and partitions are made of glass to allow the carers to observe the patients, night and day. Each alarm has a specific use (depending on the patient) and the staff know to recognise them and to determine if urgent intervention is necessary or not. All the equipment is linked to a central control station to allow this monitoring to take place outside the room.
