Critical Care

Description

Critical care (also known as Intensive Care) at Sunshine Hospitals is a multi-professional healthcare speciality that monitors patients with acute, illness or trauma.

The Critical Care (CCU) unit at Sunshine Hospitals is a 40 bedded facility which provides comprehensive, interdisciplinary patient care at the anaesthesiology pain management centre. It draws upon the expertise of our faculty as well as healthcare consultants from the departments of dentistry, psychiatry, neurology, neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, rheumatology, physical medicine and other specialities. Our dedicated hospital facility includes specialised operating rooms with state-of-the-art monitoring, interview and observation rooms.

Sunshine Hospitals has the largest CCU in Andhra Pradesh, India and these are segregated into the following units:

  • Medical CCU
  • Surgical CCU
  • Postoperative CCU
  • Cath CCU
  • Neuro CCU
Special areas of services include:
  • Interventional cardiac care recovery
  • Trauma care
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Post-surgical care

Typical examples of critical illness include heart attack, poisoning, pneumonia, surgical complications, premature birth, and stroke. Critical Care also includes trauma care for severely injured patients, either due to an automobile accident, gunshot, stabbing wounds, a fall or an industrial accident.

Critical Care nurses at Sunshine Hospitals provide a high level of skilled nursing for total patient care and often facilitate communication between all the people involved in the care of the patient. Their expertise and continuous presence allow early recognition of subtle, but significant changes in the patient’s recovery. Their monitoring thereby prevents worsening the patient’s condition and minimises complications that can arise from critical health conditions.

Pain Management:

The department of pain management exists to diagnose and treat a wide variety of pain disorders. We offer a full range of services, including interventional and non-interventional techniques and address a broad spectrum of pain-causing health conditions.

Pain is a complex medical problem that can have profound effects on physical and mental well-being. Our goal is to help decrease your level of pain and suffering and restore your quality of life.

Special areas of services include:
  • Back pain

The acute pain management services provide patients with postoperative, post-traumatic, and other types of acute pain management procedures. They require specialised interventions, regional anaesthetic techniques and complex pharmacological management. The Sunshine Hospitals team has significant expertise in providing postoperative analgesia for all such cases.
