Answer

The level of care and expertise of the different units vary from hospital to hospital. For example, the intermediate care unit in certain tertiary cardiac centers may be equipped and appropriately staffed for treatment of asymptomatic patients, but high-risk patients with unstable angina would be more appropriately cared for in an intensive care unit (ICU) in a community hospital setting.
