ANAESTHESIA


DEPARTMENT OF ANAESTHESIA

The Department of Anaesthesia offers complete Perioperative care for every surgical patient. This includes appropriate Pre Anaesthesia Evaluation, Intraoperative Care with the state of the art monitoring and a very comfortable postoperative care with emphasis on Pain relief, Early Mobilisation and Rehabilitation. Anaesthesiologists are available round the clock and look after the wards, High Dependency Unit, Postoperative Wards and Intensive Care Unit.

Trauma Resuscitation and Optimisation is spearheaded by the Anaesthesia team. Pain relief on Arrival is an unique concept evolved and practised here. We use Ultrasound Guided Nerve blocks called Regional Analgesia to provide instant pain relief to an injured patient. All the patients undergoing surgery receive Multimodal Analgesia and an Ultrasound guided selective nerve block. This helps to considerably decrease the pain and facilitates early return to normalcy.

The 36 Operation theatres are equipped with the state of the art Anaesthesia Workstations, Multiparameter monitors, Infusion pumps for Total Intravenous Anaesthesia, Online fluid warmers, Body Warmers, Rapid blood transfusion systems, Depth of Anaesthesia Monitoring, specialised monitoring of the functions of the spinal cord when needed.

Blood conservation strategies are implemented and protocols are followed to minimise blood loss during surgery. The availability of an inhouse Regional Blood bank with the facility to get blood and blood component therapy at any time gives us the opportunity to do major surgical interventions and adequately resuscitate patients with major injuries. The rapid blood transport system facilitates the arrival of blood from the Blood bank to the operation theatre in split seconds.

The availability of Fibreoptic Brochoscope, Video Laryngoscope and Airway gadgets aids us in doing complex cases with upper airway challenges.

The 24 hour laboratory services, inhouse pharmacy and clinical pharmacist, an excellent physiotherapy department, dietetics department aids us to deliver a holistic care in the perioperative period.

Deep venous thrombosis in the postoperative period is prevented by both mechano prophylaxis with the help of Intermittent Pneumatic Compression device and chemoprophylaxis.

The department is a Postgraduate Institute and also offers Superspeciality training in Ultrasound Guided Regional Anaesthesia.

Best global practises are incorporated to make every anaesthetic procedure safe and every patient comfortable during and after surgery.
