With eICU care, physicians specializing in intensive care medicine (intensivists) from St. Lukes Health System, MO lead a care team that works with WCH ICU staff to monitor critical care patients around the clock. The eICU uses high resolution cameras, phones and software that evaluate real time patient physiological data for thresholds and trends. It’s a little like an air traffic control center staffed with critical care experts who are networked to ICU patients across the system by voice, video and data. This data is continually monitored by an Intensivist and critical care nurses located at the St. Luke’s eICU center.
