Intensive care

When vital functions are severely impaired, or the animal is very unstable, the outcome largely depends on constant monitoring and care of the patient by an experienced veterinarian.

Pet conditions routinely managed in the veterinary Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Animal Hospital Postojna are all types of circulatory shock, respiratory failure, traumatic brain injury, acute renal failure, congestive heart disease, sepsis, systemic inflammatory response syndrome, polytrauma, toxicities, and patients after surgery with and underlying life-threatening condition. Another group of pets that require intense monitoring, care and treatment are patients that are at higher risk for major complications. Dogs and cats having aggressive intravenous fluid therapy or multiple blood transfusions, severe electrolyte and acid-base disorders, seizures, heart arrhythmias, severe arterial hypertension, total parenteral nutrition, post-CPR care, micro- and macrovascular thrombosis, and severe burns are all conditions that require ICU admission.

Profound knowledge of the underlying disease process and anticipation of the potential medical complications are crucial in a critical patient. Only with round-the-clock monitoring, and careful adjustment of medications and treatment programs can we achieve an optimal and balanced treatment in critical patients, thereby increasing their chances for survival.
