Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU), Flamingo, is a world leader centre for care of children with complex heart disease requiring specialist surgery. It is a 21-bedded predominantly surgical unit for children under 18 years of age who need intensive care for conditions involving the heart, lungs or airways.
The Unit offers a wide range of experiences and learning opportunities following post-op surgery including heart and lung transplantation, tracheal reconstruction, thoracic surgery, pulmonary hypertension and mechanical heart, lung and renal assist.
Treatments include medications that cannot be safely given on a general ward, and use of machines that can take over the work of the lungs, heart and kidneys. The Unit is responsible for the care of children who need artificial heart and lung support technology such as extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and Berlin Heart.
