Critical Care Medicine (CCM) is a specialty that involves the management of patients with life threatening, frequently complex medical and surgical illnesses. The CCM physician, is also called an Intensivist, he has the expertise in the evaluation and management of these critically ill patients. These patients may have dysfunction or failure of one or more organ systems, like cardiac, pulmonary, neurology, liver and kidney.
The Department of Critical Care Medicine provides sophisticated, compassionate, and expert care to critically ill patients in our medical center. Our approach to care emphasizes ethical principles and cost-effectiveness. Quality patient care is optimized through a multidisciplinary team approach, which includes intensivists, critical care fellows, nurses, respiratory and physical therapists, pharmacists, nutrition specialists, and social workers.
We have in-house consultant coverage round the clock 24 X 7. We believe this valuable resource improves the likelihood of survival for critically ill patients, provides appropriate supervision, and reduces complications due to medical errors or poorly performed procedures.
The Critical Care department at Lokpriya Hospital offer 24/7 care to patients in potentially life-threatening conditions who need continuous monitoring to be carried out by multidisciplinary team. Such situations arise in case of hemodynamic instability (hypertension/hypotension), airway or respiratory compromise (such as ventilator support), acute renal failure, potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmias, the cumulative effects of multiple organ system failure, or even in the crucial hours after major surgeries when the patient is deemed too unstable to transfer to a less intensively monitored unit.
The discipline, generally the most expensive, technologically advanced and resource-intensive area of medical care, integrates many specialties and diverse technologies, holding out the hope of survival to patients who are acutely and critically ill. The care, provided in a specialized unit of a hospital called the intensive care unit (ICU), requiresunwavering commitment, precision and synchronized teamwork.
