It includes experienced intensivists, caring nurses, and skilled surgeons who collaborate to craft a personalized treatment plan for each patient. We keep ourselves well acquainted with the latest developments in medical sciences to make sure you get the most effective treatments.

About Adult ICU Facilities:

The Adult Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a specialty of medicine in hospitals that renders comprehensive, highly specialized care to critically ill adult patients. Patients who are admitted to the ICU need close observation, advanced medical interventions, and special equipment due to serious health conditions such as life-threatening diseases or injuries resulting from accidents or surgical complications. The major aim of the adult ICU is to stabilize and support patients during their most critical phases and help them recover.

Intensive care units (ICUs) are specialized hospital wards that treat and monitor critically ill patients. They are manned by properly educated healthcare personnel and have sophisticated monitoring equipment. 

The Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit (CTICU) is specifically designed to provide care for patients who have undergone cardiac and thoracic surgery.

The Surgical ICU is known for its expertise in handling cases, utilizing an approach that combines surgical and medical knowledge. This ensures care for patients with both medical requirements.

There are reasons why individuals with cancer may require admission to the ICU. The frequent cause is failure, which means they are unable to breathe comfortably on their own. This can be attributed to factors such as lung infections (like pneumonia) or internal bleeding within the lungs.

To ensure that each patient gets specific care, the adult ICU has created protocols and separate units for COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients. While COVID-19 cases are subjected to strict infection control measures, non-COVID-19 patients have an uninterrupted provision of tailored critical care services aimed at ensuring the safety and comprehensiveness of this environment.
