I'm up for an interview on the MICU tomorrow and was wondering what are some of the most common diagnoses treated on this type of unit? When I hear MICU, the first thing that comes to mind is GI bleeds but that's about it. I'm sure there are multiple diagnoses but wanted to know the most frequently admitted to this particular unit? Thanks!!!

Well, lets see what I can think of: DKA, pancreatitis, liver disease, COPD, fevers of unknown origins, CVA's, anything "medical" in the extreme, all kinds of overflow from other units, along with those lovely GI bleeds.
I'm sure there are many other things. Good luck on your interview!!!!!
