Types of ICU...?

  1. I was just wondering what were the different types of ICU's? Like what does PICU, NICU, etc that I hear around this board stand for? Sorry if this is a dumb question, I just wanted to know!

    In addition to the "normal" units, we have a CPTICU which is Cardio-pulmonary transplant ICU.
