Critical Care Service

The Critical Care Service, which provides continuing care for critically ill patients in the MICU at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, is available to see patients in consultation elsewhere in the Medical Center and accepts patients in transfer from other hospitals. The service offers new pharmacological and ventilator therapies as well as advanced computerized monitoring for critically ill patients, however unstable, with multiple organ system failure, sepsis, or acute respiratory failure.

Other services include the whole range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures associated with the practice of critical care medicine: flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy with ancillary procedures, thoracentesis and closed pleural biopsy, endotracheal intubation, arterial and central vein catheter placement, bedside pulmonary artery catheterization, chest tube placement, and chemical pleurodesis.
