Critical Care

Overview

The Critical Care Centre at Ramkrishna CARE Hospitalsis a multidisciplinary healthcare specialty that cares for patients with acute, life-threatening illness or injury. Each critical care unit in Ramkrishna CARE Hospitalshas medical teams from several specialties and a wide range of technologies to ensure the survival and health of patients who are critically ill.

The centre is staffed by a team of specialists qualified in critical care management, available round-the-clock. They are supported by an efficient team of trained nurses and paramedical staff. The centre has an ideal patient-nurse ratio of 1:1. Emphasis is placed on intensive training of the support teams in emergency and standard care for patients. The hospital conforms to the international gold standards in every aspect of healthcare.

The centre boasts of state-of-the-art imaging and diagnostic services like CT scan, MRI scan and ultrasound. It has a fully stocked 24-hour pharmacy, comprehensive laboratory services, Blood Bank and ultramodern operating theaters. All the services are available 24x7 for immediate and accurate diagnosis of the patient’s condition. Each ICU bed is equipped with the most advanced monitoring systems, ventilators and oxygen delivery systems.

Most critical care today is delivered in highly specialized Intensive Care Units (ICUs), such as:

  • Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU)
