Critical Care

Critical Care Unit

Welcome to the Department of Critical Care at Kothari Medical Centre. Our hospital’s critical care unit is a specialized area devoted to the care and observation of patients with life-threatening illnesses. This department provides round-the-clock care and advanced medical equipment. It is staffed by a group of highly qualified healthcare experts, including critical care nurses, intensivists, and respiratory therapists.

For patients in critical situations, such as those recovering from surgery, dealing with severe illnesses, or needing mechanical ventilation, it offers comprehensive support. Our critical care unit makes sure that timely interventions, ongoing observation, and a multidisciplinary approach are used to give the highest standard of medical care while attempting to save lives and encourage the best possible recovery.


Critical Care ICU Treatment Facilities

Intensive Care Units (ICUs), NICU, HDU

The department had different ICU types, such as Medical ICUs (MICU), Surgical ICUs (SICU), Cardiac ICUs (CICU), and Neonatal ICUs (NICU). Depending on the patient's needs, they are admitted to these ICUs which have cutting-edge monitoring and life-support systems.

Round-the-Clock Monitoring

Patients' vital signs, including heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and more, are continuously monitored in critical care units. This makes sure that any alterations in a patient's condition are quickly identified and taken care of.

Mechanical Ventilation

This may be necessary for patients who are experiencing severe respiratory distress or failure in order to assist their breathing. Our team providing critical care are adept at controlling ventilators and modifying settings to improve breathing and oxygenation.

Hemodynamic Support

In order to maintain steady circulation in patients with unstable blood pressure or heart problems, medicines or other interventions may be necessary. Our experts who specialize in critical care install central lines, insert intravenous lines, and give drugs.

Neurological Care

The neurocritical care unit provides specialized care for patients with serious brain injuries or neurological diseases. This could entail sophisticated imaging techniques, seizure control, and intracranial pressure monitoring.

Infection Control

Controlling infections is crucial in critical care units because patients there are frequently at risk for infections brought on in the course of receiving medical care. Strict isolation practices, antimicrobial stewardship, and cleanliness regulations are upheld.

Pain Management

The critical care team is educated to successfully manage pain while preserving patient comfort and safety in critically ill patients, who commonly suffer pain.

Family Support

The department also provides assistance to the relatives of seriously ill patients. This entails keeping in touch with family members frequently, giving them updates on the patient's health, and providing emotional support as necessary.

End-of-Life Care

When a patient's chances of recovery are slim, the critical care team can offer loving care at the end of life, which may include pain control, the removal of life support, and assistance for the patient's family.
