The Johns Hopkins Hospital
The Progressive Cardiac Care Unit is a 32-bed unit, consisting of 20 telemetry, and 12 ICU step-down beds. The unit cares for critically ill, cardiac medicine patients with diagnoses such as acute MI, cardiomyopathy, dysrhythmia, and heart failure. Treatments are primarily medical, but frequently include intervention in the cardiac Cath & Electrophysiology lab, including stent placement, ablation, PPM/AICD implantation, or TAVR. Due to the chronicity of cardiac disease, staff have the opportunity to form strong positive relationships due to the extended stays of many patients and their families. This unit has a full-time “monitor watch” to assist in early detection of EKG changes and to alert staff of lethal rhythms. Staff on the floor will gain experience with vasoactive drip titration, Swann-Ganz catheters, LVADs, phlebotomy & IV insertion, ACLS, and palliative care.
