Critical Care medicine is of vital importance for a healthy nation. This speciality will certainly reduce the mortality by providing early and appropriate life-saving interventions to all critically ill patients.
We offer 24/7 care to patients in potentially life-threatening conditions who need continuous monitoring to be carried out by a multidisciplinary team. Such situations arise in case of haemodynamic instability (hypertension/ hypotension), airway or respiratory compromise (such as ventilator support), acute renal failure, potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmias, the cumulative effects of multiple organ system failure, or even in the crucial hours after major surgeries when the patient is deemed too unstable to transfer to a less intensively monitored unit.
This discipline is the technologically advanced and resource-intensive area of medical care and it integrates many specialties and diverse technologies, holding out the hope of survival to patients who are acutely and critically ill. The care provided in a specialized unit of a hospital called the intensive care unit (ICU), requires unwavering commitment, precision and synchronized teamwork.
Medical emergencies are increasing at an exponential rate every day. Every Indian hospital encounters an increasing number of acute cases in the form of Trauma, Medical, Surgical, Gynaecological and Paediatric emergencies and hence the need for adequate resources which include a well equipped and sophisticated emergency room with agile doctors, paramedics, and staff nurse versatile in dealing with all sorts of emergencies.
