Background
ICU is highly specified and sophisticated area of a hospital which is specifically designed, staffed, located, furnished and equipped, dedicated to management of critically sick patient, injuries or complications. It is a department with dedicated medical, nursing and allied staff.
It operates with defined policies; protocols and procedures should have its own quality control, education, training and research programmes. It is emerging as a separate specialty and can no longer be regarded purely as part of anaesthesia, Medicine, surgery or any other speciality. It has to have its own separate team in terms of doctors, nursing personnel and other staff who are tuned to the requirement of the speciality (1,2,57,58,75) .
In India the scenario of ICU development is fast catching up and after initiatives, promotion, education and training programmes of ISCCM during last 15 yrs, there has been stupendous growth in this area but much needs to be done in area of infrastructure, human resource development, protocol, guidelines formation and research which are relevant to Indian circumstances. An acceptable and logistically feasible no compromise can be made on quality and health care delivery to critically sick, yet an acceptable guidelines can be adopted for making ICU designing guidelines which may be good for both rural and urban areas as also for smaller and tertiary centres which may include teaching and non teaching institutes .
There are pre-existing guidelines on the website of ISCCM, made in 2003. There has been a sea change since then and therefore need for new guidelines. The existing guidelines have been taken as base line for the present recommendations.
Following areas are covered.

    Continuity of care, for all patients, depends on the medical professionals working together for the betterment human health that frequently rely on each other to completely care for the patient. I don’t believe one could distinguish who or what department is more important in the care of a patient in the hospital setting; from the emergency department entrance door spanning throughout the hospital, every department and every medical professional is focused on one goal: to restore normalcy in the patient and return he/she to the life that he/she was living prior to entering that door. Patient care is conquered by a team of providers contributing to a plan of care for the stabilization, improvement, and health of human…

    In “Bundles to Prevent Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia: How valuable are they?,” Charity Wip and Lena Napolitano present the results of a qualitative study to determine the value of different care bundles in preventing the occurrence of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). In fact, the authors concede that VAP is often resultant of the ventilator care plan, and that the ventilator bundle would be critical in reducing the occurrence of VAPs among the intensive care unit (ICU) patients. Of important is the fact that a range of care bundles are present, each differing in its specific care process that focuses on VAP prevention and even mortality when VAP occurs. Using the information submitted in the research article, ICU medical personnel can refine their care plans for increased effectiveness in the reduction of VAP rates in the ICU. In addition, such an understanding would ensure better overall medical care outcomes in the ICU (Wip & Napolitano, 2009). Therefore, the problem addressed by the article is the determination of the best care bundles for reducing the occurrence of VAP among ICU patients.…
