Intensive Care Unit

Say: in-ten-siv kair yoo-nit

The intensive care unit, or ICU, is a special place in the hospital where people can recover from very serious illnesses, accidents, or operations. In the ICU, a patient can get extra help from machines and extra attention from doctors, nurses, and other caring people.
