The Montefiore Medical Center MICU, 14-bed North 2, functions as a primary teaching unit admitting approximately 75+ patients per month.

The unit is staffed with one attending, two fellows, three Medicine PGY-2s and three Medicine PGY-1s. The night and weekend call staffing consists of one Medicine PGY-2 and one Medicine PGY-1.

Close relationships exist with the adjacent Echocardiography lab and Coronary Care Unit. The most frequent diagnoses at the time of admission to the Medical ICU are severe respiratory failure, septic shock, endocrine and metabolic emergencies, hemorrhagic shock, oncologic emergencies, and neuromuscular crises.
