  Intensive Care Unit: Encyclopedia of Surgery
An intensive care unit, or ICU, is a specialized section of a hospital that provides comprehensive and continuous care for persons who are critically ill and who can benefit from treatment.
With regard to the nursing staff in ICUs, the proportion of nurses with specialized and advanced training in critical care medicine is higher in larger medical centers—about 16% in hospitals with 100 beds or fewer, but 21% in hospitals with more than 500 beds.
These specialized intensive care units typically include a CCU (coronary care unit); a pediatric ICU (PICU, dedicated to the treatment of critically ill children); a newborn ICU or NICU, for the care of premature and critically ill infants; and a surgical ICU (SICU, dedicated to the treatment of postoperative patients).

 Central Processing Unit [encyclopedia]   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The ALU is the device that performs elementary operations such as arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, and so on), logical operations (AND, OR, NOT), and comparison operations (for example, comparing the contents of two "slots" for equality).
Once that occurs, the control unit goes to the next instruction (typically located in the next slot, unless the instruction is a jump instruction informing the computer that the next instruction is located elsewhere).
Modern computers put the ALU and control unit into a single integrated circuit known as the Central Processing Unit or CPU.

Besides the military thrills from the precision excellence of this fl-ops unit (which doesn't exist, of course), there are always personal stories and lots of aspects of this show that most anybody should be able to enjoy.
