Critical Care Critical Care is a specialty that involves the management of patients with life threatening, frequently complex medical and surgical illness. The critical care physician, is also called an Intensivist in some parts of the world, has expertise in the evaluation and management of these critically ill patients. A modern ICU represents the pinnacle of any hospital's approach to highly technological & sophisticated in-patient care. Our Medical ICU bears a very pleasant and aesthetic look. The design has been created keeping in mind the space utilization, patient comfort, infection control, and ease of providing critical care, nursing care and the functional requirements of the unit. All patient beds are equipped with Philips Multichannel physiological monitoring systems, which allow close monitoring of patients both from the bedside and the central nursing station and use of a variety of invasive and noninvasive modalities. All that modern medicine has to offer can be seen in this department and it is rightly called the heart of the hospital.The ICU is staffed in a nurse to patient ratio of 1:1 for all ventilated patients and 1:2 for non ventilated patients. All these ICU nurses are given introductory training in critical care nursing and undergo regular teaching programs conducted or arranged by the Critical Care Department to promote their critical care skills and knowledge throughout their stay in the ICU.
