High Dependency Unit

The High Dependency Unit (HDU) is a transitional ward between the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and the general ward. Through accurate de-escalation treatment, early rehabilitation intervention, and continuous rehabilitation training for patients, the ICU hospitalization time of patients is shortened. The goal of transfer back to the general ward or social reintegration.

In recent years, severe rehabilitation has gradually changed from rehabilitation treatment after severe illness to adjuvant rehabilitation treatment during severe illness as soon as possible under appropriate conditions, so as to reduce the complications of critically ill patients during hospitalization and improve the prognosis of patients.

Many critically ill patients are ready to be transferred from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after their vital signs have stabilized, but their condition is still highly dependent on medical monitoring and care, making it difficult for ordinary wards to receive them, and the patients are in urgent need of physical health. In this dilemma, the High Dependency Unit (HDU) has become a better choice for doctors and their families.

Critically ill patients who have transitioned from ICU may still be in a state of consciousness disorder, breathing disorder, quadriplegia, etc. In HDU, rehabilitation physicians with early rehabilitation experience, rehabilitation therapists and nurses with intensive care experience work together to become critically ill patients Rehabilitation Care Team. Combined with professional monitoring, nursing, and rehabilitation equipment and facilities, patients can actively carry out rehabilitation treatment even in the minimal state of consciousness, thereby greatly reducing the complications of cardiopulmonary hypofunction, muscle atrophy, and joint contractures caused by long-term bed rest.

In terms of hardware facilities, HDU requires the intervention of large-scale rehabilitation equipment, such as air mattresses, electromyography biofeedback devices, bed treadmills, and wheelchair transfer equipment, in addition to the emergency rescue equipment that is always available in the ICU. The focus of the HDU setting is to break the normal state of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation training can also be carried out with a ventilator to improve the physical function of the patient’s prognosis.
