The Anaesthesia aims to control pain during a surgery or procedure by using medicine called anaesthetics. It can help control your breathing, blood pressure, blood flow, and heart rate and rhythm.
Department of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care is dedicated to provision of quality critical care, management of critically ill patients and anaesthetic/pre-operative management of complex surgeries.
Anaesthesia may be used to:
- Relax you
- Block pain
- Make you sleepy or forgetful
- Make you unconscious for your surgery
Other medicines may be used along with anaesthesia, such as ones to help you relax or to reverse the effects of anaesthesia.
The Anaesthesia Department handles all surgical cases including high risk cases. The department is equipped with state of the art equipments including anaesthesia workstations. The anaesthesia services are available round the clock for all emergency cases by the anaesthesia team which is well qualified and trained. The team ensures the patient care from pre-anaesthetic check-up to post op recovery and care.
