The electronic intensive care unit (eICU) is the cutting edge of medical technology and allows ICU patients from multiple Sentara Hospitals to be monitored and evaluated on a real time basis. This ICU and eICU partnership offers the patient the most complete, responsive, and safe care possible. The eICU team includes a board certified intensive care physician, experienced critical care registered nurses, and an administrative associate.

Technologically advanced equipment allows the ICU patient to be seen with the use of a wall-mounted camera and monitored from a computer screen receiving information on the patient. Discussion with bedside care providers and even patients and family members may occur with the two-way audio connection. There are direct phone lines in each of the ICUs monitored by eICU to allow the bedside care provider instant communication with the eICU physician and nurses. The eICU physician and staff continuously monitor the patient and can quickly alert the bedside staff of any subtle change in the patient’s status.

eICU is proud to have measured a 25% reduction in mortality rates of patients requiring ICU care and to have shortened the duration of hospitalization by 17% in their first year.
