Anesthesiology

Department of Anaesthesiology is concerned with the relief of pain as well as the total care of the patient before, during and after the surgical procedure. The Department of Anaesthesiology focuses on the expert administration of anaesthesia in every surgical specialty. The Department provides anaesthesia services which accommodate surgeries like Orthopaedic, Laparoscopic and Open Abdominal surgeries, Urosurgery, Obstetrics / Gynaecology, ENT etc. All modern and safer drugs required for delivery of Anaesthesia are available for patient’s care. In addition, there are facilities available which are helpful in handling critically ill patients and those coming for complicated major surgical procedures. Operation rooms are equipped with Infusion pumps, which help deliver the exact rate and quantity of drugs to patients during the surgical procedure. We use both general and regional anaesthetic techniques or in combination.

We have a system of pre-operative assessment which is done by the Anesthetics: All patients are evaluated extensively prior to the administration of anesthesia, both before admission and also in the rooms and wards. The Anesthesia plan and the risks involved are explained to the patient.

During the Administration of Anesthesia, the care is maintained: The anesthesia technique is planned for each patient depending on the surgical procedure, the condition of the patient, and the availability of drugs. Each patient is monitored continuously during the procedure.

Post Anesthesia care: All patients who undergo surgery under Anesthesia are observed in a modern well equipped postoperative recovery care unit by specially trained nursing staff under the guidance of the Anesthesiologists. Care is taken to provide adequate post-operative pain relief to every patient. Those who need more intense monitoring for a longer period of time are shifted to the critical care unit for further management.

Post-operative pain management: Acute Pain Service is provided for acute and immediate post-operative pain management of admitted patients.
