high dependency unit

The high dependency unit (HDU) in EMC is the best high dependency ICU in Kochi. We have special wards providing intensive monitoring and treatment for patients who are critically ill or in an unstable condition.

Such patients need more intensive observation, treatment and nursing care than ordinary wards, but not on the scale as in an intensive care unit.

Located as an extension of the ICUs, the HDUs in EMC are of a multidisciplinary nature admitting patients who are in need of medical or surgical high dependency care, as a step-down between an intensive care and ward based care.
