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

- 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.
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
- Pain around knee
- Pain around neck
- Pain after spine surgery for prolapsed disc
- Post-trauma pains

The acute pain management services provide patients with postoperative, post-traumatic, and other types of acute pain management procedures.

SCOPE OF INTENSIVE CARE UNIT:
Who is intensivist?
An intensivist is a multi-organ specialist who treats multiorgan failure patients by coordinating with various single organ specialists.
When to ask for an intensivist?
If your loved one is critically ill and admitted to ICU then ask for an intensivist.
What will Intensivist do?
You must have heard “ Too many cooks spoil the broth”. A multi-organ failure treatment not only requires a single organ specialist, but it also requires coordination of all for the best outcome. It also requires 24/7 monitoring of patients. This is done by an intensivist.
Who will take care of the patient outside ICU?
Once the patient is ready for discharge from the ICU, either a single organ specialist or general physician or surgeon takes care. Sometimes the intensivist also follows up the patients in the ward.
What is the role of a respiratory therapist and physiotherapy?
Critically ill patients require close monitoring of lung infection especially when on the ventilator. This is done by a respiratory therapist. They also provide chest physiotherapy to all patients and ensure sputum is not accumulated.
