Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU)

MICU is staffed by an experienced team of certified paramedics that can perform such functions as cardiac monitoring, defibrillation, synchronized cardioversion, external cardiac pacing, 12 lead EKG, phlebotomy, tracheal intubation, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), intravenous therapy, intraosseous access, chest decompression, medication administration through IV, IM, SQ, oral, rectal central venous and transdermal mechanisms, and pulse oximetry.

MICU is dispatched by the Union County Regional Dispatch Center. A request for medical assistance is routed through a local 9-1-1 dispatch center, usually at each town’s police department. If the request is serious, the dispatcher puts through a request for advance life support (ALS) to the paramedic unit that covers that municipality.
