Swedish term or phrase: Observationen i sig är det intensiva
I don't quite understand "det intensiva" in this context:

"Kännetecken för observation av patient med neurologiska symtom:
- Observationen i sig är det intensiva
[...]"

It's hard for me to interpret this as simply saying "the observation is intensive", because 1) the articles "den" and "det" are different genders, and 2) it's unclear why the article after "är ..." is being used to begin with.

Thanks
