Coronary Care Unit and Step Down Unit

The Coronary Care Unit (CCU) is where intensive investigation, monitoring and treatment for cardiac patients occurs.
 
The Step Down Unit is a unit that provides an intermediary level of care between the intensive CCU and the ward. It is for those patients who do not need the intensive care of the CCU but who require more monitoring etc than provided in general wards.
