Acute Cardiac Unit

The Unit provides close monitoring and high-dependency care for a variety of cardiac conditions.

This includes the emergency management of heart attacks and the immediate and long term management of other cardiac conditions, including heart failure and heart arrhythmias.

We also look after patients who need close monitoring following procedures undertaken in our Cardiac Catheter Suite, such as:

  • Angiograms
  • Angioplastys
  • Pacemaker insertions

We work closely with the multi-disciplinary teams across the hospital but work particularly closely with colleagues from the Cardiac Rehabilitation Team and the Cardiac Catheter Suite.
