In 2016, when trauma centre established the Department of Anesthesiology and I.C.U. began offering anesthetic services only to emergency O.T.s & Trauma I.C.U. With favorable peri-operative outcome we now provide anesthesia services to emergency and elective cases of Orthopedic Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Maxillofacial Surgery, Neurosurgery, Cardiac Surgery, and Plastic Surgery, General Surgery, and Radiology suite.
Trauma ICU, HDU & Ventilation Bay
The department operates I.C.U. (12 bedded) and H.D.U. (18 bedded) on 7th floor for Critical care management of surgical patients. Acute trauma patients, that arrive in the emergency room and require immediate critical care management, are shifted to first floor ventilation bay (10 bedded). Our department also responds to emergency calls from across the institute. Our I.C.U. is unlike any other in public sector hospital with skilled and qualified doctors 24 hours a day, trained personnel and outstanding, physiotherapy services. Standard Pharmacy, nutrition and most recently psychological care are all available to ICU patients. Throughout the year there is high demand for I.C.U. beds with 95% of beds being occupied.
We have worked relentlessly on the academic front to train more skilled anesthetists in the country since the outset. Our department was created to address the demands of the PMDC and CPSP. CPSP accreditation for MCPS and FCPS training was attained in January 2019. There have been 27 P.G.s enrolled in the training programs since then.
The goal is to generate competent, self-assured anesthesiologists with exceptional talents.
