Department of Critical Care and Anaesthesiology at QRG Health City is committed towards providing a complete anaesthetic management and highest quality of post-operative intensive care to the patients of complex surgeries.
The team includes certified anaesthesiology and surgical intensivists, critical care nurse practitioners, and respiratory therapists, who ensure that both operative and post-operative stages are painless and the recovery is faster.
The medical staff of the Department determines many aspects of patient management such as ventilatory support, sedation, nutrition and monitoring. They also play a key role in coordinating postoperative care between services. They provide specialty services to patients recovering from surgery with acute post-operative management needs or those with post-operative complications.
Excellence in Critical Care and Anesthesiology
At the Department of Critical Care and Anesthesiology we provide state-of-the-art anesthesia care, pain management and life support for patients in intensive care units.
We provide comprehensive patient care starting with an initial evaluation in the Anesthesia Assessment Center. Patients undergo surgery in the operating room and receive care into the post anesthesia and intensive care units.
Anesthesiologists apply their knowledge of medicine to fulfil their primary role in the operating room, which is not only to ensure your comfort during surgery, but also to make informed medical decisions to protect you. These include treating and regulating changes in your critical life functions — breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, fluid balancing, and management of blood loss— as they are affected by the surgery being performed. Any problems with your lungs, heart, kidneys and other organs will be diagnosed and treated immediately by the anesthesiologist.
The medical expertise of the anesthesiologists enables them to alleviate pain. Pain has been designated as the fifth vital sign. Acute and chronic pain management constitutes a priority for our department. Patients suffering from chronic pain have a host of invasive and non-invasive techniques to treat this challenging problem. Also for these patients a multi-specialty team exists to provide a cohesive approach to treatment. This includes a surgeon, neurologist, psychologist and physical therapist.
In the intensive care units, a team of critical care specialists, nurses and respiratory care practitioners provide state-of-the-art life supporting treatments.
