You or your loved one has just been admitted to an intensive care unit.
LifeMapp has been created to accompany you throughout the stages of a stay in intensive care and to give you a maximum of information, whether general or specific to the intensive care unit in which you or your loved one is admitted.
You should know that the medical teams are at your side throughout this difficult ordeal.
LifeMapp is an application developed by the One O One Foundation, which works for the progress of resuscitation in the world and whose ambition is to save 1 million lives in 4 years.
Here, we help you to find your way when life is at stake and to help you to "live better" during and after resuscitation.
Médecine Intensive Réanimation – CHU Nord (APHM)
The Intensive Care Medicine Department is oriented towards care, teaching and research activities (clinical research as well as fundamental research) concerning the management of respiratory distress and life-threatening infectious diseases.
The department provides care for respiratory and infectious diseases such as
-Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS): The unit receives many patients with ARDS each year. The unit’s expertise in the management of the most severe ARDS and the technical means at its disposal make it a regional reference centre for this type of patient. The intensive care units of Marseille and its region call on our team to receive the most serious patients and in particular those requiring extracorporeal respiratory assistance (ECRA). Since 2009, a specifically dedicated mobile unit (UMAC-SDRA), associating the cardiac surgery teams of La Timone, the SAMU 13 and the DRIS resuscitation unit, makes it possible, thanks to a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week service, to establish the indication and then to set up an ERCP on the site where the patient is located and, secondarily, to organise his transfer to our unit.
-Care of lung transplant patients: In collaboration with the Pneumology and Thoracic Surgery teams, we provide immediate post-operative care for lung transplant patients as well as for patients in respiratory distress who are waiting for a transplant.
In addition to these specific pathologies, our unit welcomes all patients with vital organ dysfunction from the emergency department or from inpatient departments.
Some more specific techniques oriented towards respiratory pathologies are also implemented: postural manoeuvres (prone position), non-conventional ventilation modes, pleural pressure monitoring.
Our technical specificity is represented by the AREC, which allows us to ensure total respiratory support, via extra-corporeal circulation, for patients with severe ARDS or with primary graft dysfunction in the post-transplant phase. The department is organised into two intensive care units of 14 and 10 beds, plus 5 beds for continuous care.
The multi-disciplinary team is composed of doctors, nursing managers, nurses, care assistants, maintenance staff, physiotherapists, psychologists, and a logistics and administrative team. They are all there to provide the best possible care to patients and are fully available to receive your questions and remarks.

What is intensive care?
Intensive care is the general medicine of vital distress. It takes care of the most serious patients, those whose life and the function of the main organs (heart, lungs, kidneys, liver or nervous system...) are directly threatened. Whatever the cause that engages the vital prognosis, the resuscitation makes the life of the patients its priority.
A resuscitation service operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for continuous monitoring of vital functions and permanent adjustment of therapies. To ensure this specific care, many caregivers, present at all times, provide multiple care requiring the use of sophisticated medical equipment.What is intensive care?
