Intensive care unit (ICU & OT Complex)
The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a highly specialised unit dedicated to the needs of patients requiring intensive monitoring and cardiac, medical, and surgical care.
Critical care services include support for instabilities such as hypertension/hypotension, airway or respiratory compromise (ventilator support), acute kidney injury, cardiac arrhythmias, or the cumulative effects of multiple organ failure, also known as multiple organ dysfunction syndrome.
Patients needing intensive/invasive monitoring, such as in the crucial hours after major surgery or patients who are considered too unstable to transfer to a less intensively monitored unit may also be placed in the Intensive Care Units.
Critical Care services influence important overall outcome measures such as mortality, length of stay and infection rates.
Critical care involves close, constant attention by a team of specially trained health professionals. It usually takes place in an intensive care unit (ICU). Problems that might need critical care treatment include the following:
Facilities for performing bedside bronchoscopy, USG-guided biopsy, portable X-rays, sonography, ABG analysis, bedside echocardiography and dialysis are the major strengths of the ICU.
The operation theatre complex comprises major and minor OT with a separate recovery room area. They function around the clock under the competent care of highly qualified and experienced anesthesiologists assisted by specially trained male and female OT technicians.
The OT conforms to contemporary design, and is well-equipped with the latest aesthetic machines, defibrillators, monitors, infusion pumps, diathermy machines, emergency cart drugs and sophisticated suction instruments.
The OT is equipped with all the surgical instruments needed for various procedures and surgeries.
