AIOR CRITICAL CARE UNIT (24X7)
The AIOR Critical Care Unit offers continuous care and support to patients recovering from traumatic injuries.
The Critical Care Unit at AIOR operates 24/7 to ensure patients receive continuous care and attention during their recovery process.
Patient care in the unit is managed through a collaborative approach, involving a team of experts from various medical fields. This approach ensures comprehensive care tailored to the patient's needs.
AIOR established one of the first dedicated Orthopedic Intensive Care Units, focusing on specialized care for orthopedic patients with unique needs related to their injuries or surgeries.
Over time, the hospital has expanded its critical care facilities. In 2008, a 10-bed Orthopaedic ICU was inaugurated, and in 2013, an additional 10 beds were added to meet the growing demand for critical care services.
The Orthopaedic Intensive Care Unit was initiated by Dr. Ashish Singh, with support from respected medical professionals, including Dr. Baijnath Prasad and Dr. G.K. Singh.
The unit is led by Dr. Anu Narayan, and a team of intensivists provides round-the-clock coverage to ensure patients receive the best possible care.
The unit is equipped with modern medical equipment necessary for the care of critically ill patients, including an arterial blood gas analyzer, advanced ventilators, and specialized intensive care unit beds. Isolation beds are also available when needed.
The Orthopaedic Critical Care Unit is supported by laboratory and radiology services, ensuring that diagnostic tests and imaging can be quickly performed when required.
MICU stands for medical intensive care unit, while SICU is a surgical intensive care unit. On the other hand, a SICU will treat patients who recently had surgery or could potentially need surgery. These two units have the same resources as a general ICU
Intensive care units, as previously explained, are for critically ill patients that require close supervision and monitoring; larger hospitals will separate medical and surgical patients. MICU stands for medical intensive care unit, while SICU is a surgical intensive care unit.
MICUs handle a wide array of medical conditions and can treat patients suffering from lung problems, gastrointestinal problems, and blood infections. On the other hand, a SICU will treat patients who recently had surgery or could potentially need surgery. These two units have the same resources as a general ICU.
