The Cardiac Critical Care (CCU) RN works in a highly specialized
area catering to the needs of patients requiring constant
monitoring and whose clinical conditions are considered critical.
The Cardiac Critical Care RN is adept at noting subtle hemodynamic
changes that could lead to serious complications and providing
immediate intervention as required. The CCU RN is comfortable
operating and managing complex medical equipment such as
ventilators, cardiac monitors, infusion pumps and mechanical
devices. The CCU RN works closely with physicians, unlicensed
assistive personnel and the multidisciplinary team to ensure that
the patient/family experience is optimal. The Cardiac Critical Care
RN is expected to have a comprehensive knowledge of cardiac disease
and other body systems along with the therapies and treatments for
the cardiac patient. This knowledge includes and not limited to:
Cardiac-focused assessments, airway management, pain management,
hemodynamics, cardiac dysrhythmias, cardiac medications, cardiac
