Critical Care Medicine

Department of Critical Care Medicine at Yashoda Super Specialty Hospitals looks after critical patients with acute, life-threatening illness or injury. Typical examples of critical illness include heart attack, poisoning, pneumonia, surgical complications, premature birth and stroke. Critical care also includes care of the severely injured; whether due to an automobile accident, gunshot or stabbing wounds, a fall, burns, or an industrial accident.

At Yashoda, we have multiple bedded and multi disciplinary Intensive care units with a dedicated team of qualified Critical Care Consultants which is equipped with:

  • Advanced Monitors At Each Of The Bed Spaces.
  • Sophisticated Ventilators That Can Support Upto 15 Patients At Any One Time.
  • Facilities For Intermittent Dialysis And Continuous Cardiac Output Monitoring.
  • Non Invasive Ventilatory Equipment (BiPAP, CPAP)

Regular monitoring includes ECG, arrhythmia and ST-T segment evaluation, central and core temperature, NIBP, ABP, CVP, PAP, ETCO2, ICP and intraabdominal pressures. The facilities of Echocardiography, ultrasound, colour Doppler and x-ray are available round the clock.

Patient care and safety are significantly enhanced by 1:1 nursing for all ventilated patients and 1:2 nursing for non-ventilated patients. An active in-house training program ensures that all the nurses are fully trained and up to date in their information.

All the Units are functionally independent with dedicated Nursing station, central monitoring, clean & dirty utility areas and are manned by dedicated specialty nurses. The ICUs also have isolation rooms with independent AHUs for immunocompromised and heavily infected patients. ICU is supported by the High Dependency Units and step down wards.
