​The Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) provides multi-disciplinary evidence based critical care to post-operative patients with life threatening conditions or unstable, severely ill patients who require frequent monitoring and potentially require intensive intervention or ventilation. We attend to approximately 85 patients per month (the department attends to patients over the age of 14 years). As a department we work closely with other intensive care units and all specialties in Hamad General Hospital and Hamad Medical Corporation for the transfer, admission, discharge, referral, diagnosis and treatment of patients, to ensure the highest possible standards of patient care.
