CRITICAL CARE
 
At Sagar Multi And Super Speciality Hospital, Critical Care Units are headed by multidisciplinary team of dedicated experts who provide, continuous, specialized care to critically ill patients with a variety of medical or surgical conditions who require complex multi-organ support. ICU staffed by highly trained doctors and nurses who specialize in caring for seriously ill patients. ICU's are also distinguished from normal hospital wards by a higher staff-to-patient ratio and access to advanced medical resources. Patients may be transferred directly to an intensive care unit from an emergency department if required, or from a ward if they rapidly deteriorate, or immediately after surgery if the surgery is very invasive and the patient is at high risk of complications.
 
 
 
 
WHAT KINDS OF ILLNESS REQUIRE CRITICAL CARE ?
 

Any illness that threatens life requires critical care. Poisoning, surgical problems, and premature birth are a few causes of critical illness. Critical illness includes:

Illness that affects the heart and all of the vessels that carry blood to the body, such as:

  • Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
  • Shock
  • Arrhythmia
  • Congestive heart failure

Illness that affects the lungs and the muscles used for breathing, such as:

  • Respiratory failure
  • Pneumonia
  • Pulmonary embolus

Illness that affects the kidneys, such as:

  • Kidney failure

Illness that affects the mouth, esophagus, stomach, intestines, and other parts of the body that carry food, such as:

  • Bleeding
  • Malnutrition

Illness that affects the brain and the spinal cord and nerves that connect the brain to the arms, legs, and other organs, such as:

  • Stroke
  • Encephalopathy

Infection caused by a virus, bacteria, or fungus, such as:

  • Sepsis
  • Ventilator-associated pneumonia
  • Catheter-related infection
  • Drug-resistant infection

Multiple organ failure

A serious injury also requires critical care, whether the result of:

  • A car crash
  • A gunshot or stabbing wound
  • A fall
  • Burns
 
CRITICAL CARE - MEDICAL PROCEDURES
 
  Hematocrit test
   
Hematocrit (he-MAT-uh-krit) is the proportion of your total blood volume that is composed of red blood cells. A hematocrit (Hct) test indicates whether you have too few or too many red blood cells conditions that can occur as the result of certain diseases. Red blood cells, or erythrocytes (uh-RITH-roe-sites), transport oxygen throughout your body. A hematocrit test is done using a sample of your blood. A lab technician puts the sample in a device called a centrifuge that spins the blood very quickly in a test tube. This motion separates your blood into three parts: the fluid component (plasma), red blood cells and other blood cells. When the blood is separated, the technician can determine what proportion of the cells are red blood cells. Hematocrit is also called packed-cell volume (PCV).
  Hemoglobin test
   
A hemoglobin test measures the amount of hemoglobin in your blood. Hemoglobin is a protein in your red blood cells that carries oxygen to your body's organs and tissues and transports carbon dioxide from your organs and tissues back to your lungs. If a hemoglobin test reveals that your hemoglobin level is lower than normal, it means you have a low red blood cell count (anemia). Anemia can have many different causes, including vitamin deficiencies, bleeding and chronic diseases. If a hemoglobin test shows a higher than normal level, there are several potential causes the blood disorder polycythemia vera, living at a high altitude, smoking, dehydration, burns and excessive vomiting.
  Prothrombin time test
   
A prothrombin time test measures how quickly your blood clots. Sometimes called a pro time test or PT test, a prothrombin time test uses a sample of your blood. Prothrombin is a protein produced by your liver that helps your blood to clot. When you bleed, a series of chemicals (clotting factors) activate in a stepwise fashion. The end result is a clot which stops the bleeding. One step in the process is prothrombin turning into another protein called thrombin. The prothrombin time test measures how well the clotting process works and how long it takes to occur.
