Main Campus Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU)

The CVICU is the largest single cardiovascular surgery intensive care site in the country with seven units and over 75 beds. The CVICU supports more than 19,000 patient days per year. Clinical management by board certified intensivists is co-primary with the cardiovascular surgeons. This collaborative structure enables the CVICU medical staff to determine aspects of patient management such as ventilatory support, sedation, nutrition and monitoring. CVICU staff also plays a key role in coordinating postoperative care between services. Staff provide follow-up on the regular nursing floor for patients with respiratory complications.

Main Campus Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU)

The SICU is an intensive care unit for post-operative patients. Critical care in the SICU is directed by staff anesthesiologists who are board-certified in anesthesiology and critical care medicine. They provide specialty services to patients recovering from surgery with acute post-operative management needs or those with post-operative complications. The primary surgical services admitting to the SICU include colorectal surgery, general surgery, and orthopaedics.

Effective and timely delivery of critical care is a major safety net for Cleveland Clinic and its community hospitals. Our critical care teams provide high-level ICU support, management of mechanical ventilation and respiratory care, invasive ICU procedures and emergency support in non-ICU areas.
