Surviving a critical illness, a complex surgery, or injury is a physically and emotionally traumatic experience. While surgeries and treatments help some patients return to an active life, some patients suffer from serious medical complications and require long-term care, re-admissions, prolonged mechanical ventilation, and treatments in ICU settings. The tedious surgical procedures involve various anatomical and physiological complexities that make recovery difficult. Taking care of a Ventilator-dependent or a medically unstable patient is not possible without proper assistance from trained professionals.
That’s where “Long-term Acute Care” comes in. It facilitates caregiving in an exceptionally skilled environment that is crucial for recovery. Patients that require long term ICU care are those who need mechanical ventilation, intermittent respiratory care, multiple IV Medications or transfusions, complex wound care or care for burns.
Mechanical ventilators are usually helpful for patients who have a diminished respiratory capacity, inability to swallow fluids and medicines is compensated by putting the patients on IV drips, and loss of excessive blood needs a prompt transfusion. An expert supervised ICU setting is an ideal environment for people that need prolonged care.
