Several wings of the critical care medicine unit
- Neuro and Trauma ICU
This department is an intensive care unit that takes care of patients suffering from life-threatening neurological problems. This field of care covers a wide array of diseases that helps treat critical diseases. Every specialist and nurse working in this department has proper knowledge and training on using neurological tools like ventilator mechanic, intensive blood pressure monitoring, and cardiac telemetry.
People with damaged nervous system work differently depending on the area where there is a problem. For instance, some patients can have problems with their movement, and some patients can have a problem remembering. So, the staff must be trained enough to gather critical information and treat it accordingly.
This care unit looks into the specialized treatment of patients who are critically ill or acutely unwell. The specialist provides critical care to patients and life support to injured people. The patients get admitted to the ICU after getting a referral from the doctor or is there in the emergency ward. Sahyadri Hospital has a team of multidisciplinary doctors, nurses, and specialists trained in surgical, medical and trauma conditions. Moreover, the department has a fairly large sterile area containing technical, specialized and monitoring equipment for treating a critically ill patient.
Sahyadri hospitals critical care unit provides specialized 24×7 care to patients suffering from severe medical conditions. We focus on making the patient comfortable through our round-the-clock medical service and best practices. There are also trained specialists and staff who keep a close watch of patients’ vital signs. In case of the professional notices any, they immediately start the treatment. This care unit mainly contains those patients that need constant care and attention.
However, the disease they are carrying may not be as severe as if sounds. After going through major surgery, many patients are transferred to CCU to keep a close view of the vital post-surgery signs. It can be a risk, including breathing problems, cardiac arrest, internal bleeding, etc.
Sahyadri Hospital offers its patient service of a High Dependency Unit to take care of those patients that require constant care and attention, But their condition is not as severe to warrant an ICU bed. These patients can’t be kept on the general care floor until the patient’s health stabilizes completely after surgery or any other medical treatment. This unit is different from ICU because, in the ICU, the patient’s criticality is such that one patient needs one nursing care, whereas, in HDU, one nurse is allotted to every two patients.
- Cardiac HDU
Our hospital has a specialized HDU department for patients who require intensive observation, nursing and treatment that is not possible to deliver in the general ward. The ratio of nurses is comparatively lower than the intensive care unit but higher than the general wards. The patients are closely monitored after undergoing cardiac treatment. The professionals and specialists look for any critical signs like pain in the chest, breathing issues, etc., to provide immediate care. When the healthcare professionals confirm that the patient is out of any threat, they are shifted to the general ward.
- Isolation rooms
When the doctors at Sahyadri Hospital feel that the patient must be kept away from other patients while receiving medical care, they shift him/her to a special room called Isolation room. This is necessary for conditions when the patient is suffering from a condition that can infect others in the room. On the other hand, it can also be because your condition will make you vulnerable to be infected by others easily.
These isolation rooms sometimes use the system of negative air pressure to prevent airborne disease like flu or tuberculosis to escape the room and start infecting others. The machine helps by pulling in the air and then filtering it before it moves outside. On the other hand, we use positive air pressure if the person has a weak immune system and prone to catch an infection. The system helps keep the contagious diseases out of the room by filtering the air before it enters the room.
It is a specialized process that we offer at Sahyadri Hospital to patients who need a dialysis machine and special filter. This is mostly necessary for conditions to clean your blood when the kidney is not able to do that. Due to some issue in the kidney’s functionality, it is no longer able to remove wastes and fluid from the blood, thus requiring a dialyzer instead to carry on the work.
The dialyzer has two parts one filter the blood, and the other washes the fluid. A thin membrane separates these two parts, which help filter smaller waste material from the blood like creatinine, urea, extra fluid and potassium. At the same time, the protein and other important things in the blood remain in contact.
Conditions we treat
There are various types of diseases that we take care of in our Critical care Unit. We have a specialized team of care that include not only ICU but also other departments like the CCU, HDU, isolation room, etc., for assisting critical patients. They take care of patients who have recently gone through invasive surgery or are severely ill, suffering from an infection, having trouble breathing, requires a ventilator, etc. The following are the most common condition when you need the assistance of this department:
- Lung problem
- Brain trauma
- Heart problem
- Organ failure
- Drug-resistant infection
- Blood infection
- Serious injury due to accidents
The professionals in the critical care unit are highly trained in using different equipment for different types of diseases like the following:
- The doctors may use catheters; these are flexible tubes to either push fluids into the body or excrete harmful fluids.
- Intravenous tubes are used to provide fluid and medicines to the patients through their veins in condition when they cannot consume water and food by mouth.
- The patients with failed kidney receive help from a dialysis machine to clear out wastes and filter all blood impurities. It also maintains the proper level of minerals in the blood and monitors blood flow throughout the body.
- The doctors also supplement oxygen to patients who are unable to release oxygen on their own. In such case oxygen therapy help improve the energy level, better quality life and sleep pattern.
- Our doctors also provide nutritional support by offering feeding tubes to patients. This device is directly inserted to the stomach and through the abdomen.
- The care units also contain machine that keeps on recording the patients’ condition and displays them on a monitor for the professionals to keep a close view on it.
- The patients are also offered tracheostomy tubes which act as breathing tubes. First, the doctors make surgical holes in the front of the neck then insert them into the windpipe.
- The doctors also offer assistance of ventilators to absorb and release air out of the lungs. This is a necessary process for people having a respiratory problem.
Many machines in this department serve to save the lives of patients and reduce the risk of patients getting infected from different diseases.
