ANAESTHESIOLOGY & INTENSIVE CARE UNIT (ICU)

Intensive care is usually offered to those whose condition is potentially reversible and who have a good chance of surviving with intensive care support. Since the critically ill are so close to dying, the outcome of this intervention is difficult to predict. A prime requisite for admission to an intensive-care unit (ICU) is that the underlying condition can be overcome. The Critical Care units at Mewar Hospital, integrate many specialties and diverse technologies, offering the possibility of survival to patients who are acutely and critically ill. They are designed and managed based on the fact that methodical organization of Critical Care services influences important overall outcome measures such as mortality, length of stay and infection rates. A lot of emphasis is also placed on areas like nurses’ training, standardizing care through clinical pathways and the identification of ethical and economic issues pertaining to Critical Care.
