eICU Center

An added layer of care in the ICU

Emory Healthcare offers an innovative way of providing a second layer of care for our patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). Using the newest technology and private, high-speed data lines, our critical care physician experts (also known as intensivists) and experienced critical care nurses work in partnership with physicians and nurses at the patient's bedside by providing round-the-clock monitoring from an off-site location and rapid treatment and intervention at a moment's notice.

How does the eICU care team actually deliver medical care?

When your loved one is in an ICU and their condition is critical, nothing can replace the effectiveness of a specialist in the room. Emory eICU service adds another layer of support to the care team in the hospital, by providing your loved one with constant monitoring by qualified remote intensivist physicians and nurses who are alerted to every aspect of a patient's condition at times when other physicians are not able to be at the bedside.

The eICU service does not replace your family physician or surgeon but provides additional support to ensure the best possible outcome for your loved one by working with your family physician or surgeon and ICU nurses.
