J2 ICU is a Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit of Stanford Health Care. This is a 24-bed state of the art patient and family centric unit. It serves a diverse group of critically ill patients with complex clinical problems. Nurses on this unit are trained to care for a variety of medical and surgical conditions utilizing a broad range of specialized skills, procedures and devices in a dynamic environment of an innovative world class teaching institution. The commonly seen devices in the unit are CRRT, IABP, LVAD, RVAD, Impella, and ECMO. A collaborative team approach (i.e. surgeons, physicians, anesthesiologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, perfusionists, respiratory therapists, rehabilitation therapists and ancillary staff) is used in providing the best care to achieve optimal patient outcomes.
