The BICU at the Oxyzone Hospital Burn Center provides advanced treatment for burn patients. These patients need highly skilled medical attention, including close observation and the use of special monitoring equipment and comprehensive skin treatments. Doctors and nurses on the unit are trained in critical care and burn care.
The aim of the unit is to provide optimal care of the burn-injured patient utilising the skills of a multidisciplinary team from the acute to the rehabilitative phase of burn injury. The multidisciplinary team in conjunction with the patient and the family aim to preserve life and with equal importance promote quality of life by maximising long-term physical, vocational and psychosocial functioning.
