The full form of HDU is High-Dependency Unit. Basically, it is a ward in a hospital near the intensive care unit (ICU) where extensive care is provided to patients who do not require intensive care. So it is more than a general ward, but less than an intensive care or ICU ward. Units like this were built in the 90’s for those patients who needed more care than general wards could provide. If patients are at risk of requiring intensive care, they may also be admitted to the HDU department.
ICU vs HDU
ICU stands for Intensive Care Unit and HDU stands for High Dependency Unit. The main difference between an ICU and a HDU is that an ICU treats patients with severe and life-threatening conditions, while a HDU treats patients who need more care than patients in a general department.
