Critical Care and Perioperative Medicine

The Intensive Care Unit at Monash Medical Centre is a 26 bed, level III facility. It is accredited for C24 training with the College of Intensive Care Medicine (CICM), and offers a highly stimulating and enjoyable work environment.

Monash Medical Centre is also one of the few units to provide advanced life support to critically ill adults and children.

We provide academic support to both medical and nursing staff, and the unit welcomes and fosters trainees from all backgrounds and has a strong emphasis on teaching and research. The unit’s case mix includes a wide variety of medical and surgical patients, together with Cardiothoracic, Neurosurgical and Paediatric cases. The unit provides state wide obstetric ICU services, Medical Emergency Team for the hospital (MET) and an Outreach nursing service.

The research in the ICU at the Monash Medical Centre focuses on improving our understanding of critical illness, and improving the processes we use to care for our patients.

We have longstanding expertise in computerised clinical support, in advanced physiological monitoring, and the ICU has been a key participant in a number of international multi-centre studies  which have made important contributions to the care of our patients.
