The Critical Care Unit at Maxhealth Hospitals provides advanced care and expertise to emergency and critically ill patients. The expertise of our staff is required in case of severe accidents, strokes, and other trauma cases, wherein quick medical treatment is essential. Other patients who require our services include those who require postoperative care after major surgeries and patients from distant places requiring emergency treatment. Our intensive care unit (ICU) is prepared to deal with conditions like:
  • Heart attack: The flow of blood to the heart is blocked due to the build-up of fat and other substances in the arteries. Without blood, tissue loses oxygen and dies. Typical symptoms include chest pain, nausea, and shortness of breath. Many people may not experience these classic signs though.

  • Heart failure: In heart failure, the heart does not pump blood as it should. Some of the symptoms are shortness of breath, swelling of ankles and feet, fatigue, chest pain, rapid or irregular heartbeat, etc.

  • Stroke: Cell death occurs due to poor flow of blood to the brain. This can be due to a blocked or ruptured vessel. Symptoms include paralysis, numbness on one side of the body, trouble speaking and walking, vision problems, lack of balance, etc.

  • Third-degree burns: This is a burn where the damage to the skin extends into deeper tissues and the fat layer. It can be caused due to hot liquids, fire, chemicals, or electricity. It can be accompanied with lack of pain if the nerve endings have been destroyed.

  • Severe head injury: An injury to the brain, skull or scalp can lead to a severe head injury that can potentially cause brain damage. It can be caused due to accidents, a severe blow to the head, blood clotting disorders, or self-harm.

  • Severe accident: Accidents that cause major injury to any part of the body are classified severe. It can lead to a head injury, fracture(s), burns, etc.

  • Bone Fractures: A crack or break in the bone is known as a bone fracture. It can occur in any part of the body. Pain, swelling, bruising, skin discoloration, etc. are all symptoms of a fracture.

  • Respiratory Failure: It occurs when there is an insufficient exchange of gas (oxygen and carbon dioxide) in the respiratory system. It may be caused due to COPD, Asthma, Pneumonia, etc. Depending on the type, it can cause shortness of breath or rapid breathing and loss of consciousness.

  • Pneumonia: An infection in one or both lungs caused by bacteria, virus, or fungi is called pneumonia. Some of its symptoms are shortness of breath, coughing (with phlegm), chest pain, and fever.

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS): It is a type of respiratory failure that is caused due to inflammation in the lungs. Its symptoms may include shortness of breath, tiredness, rapid breathing, and low blood pressure.

  • Pulmonary Embolism: It is caused when a blood clot or several small clots are present in the arteries between the heart and the lungs. Blue lips or nails, shortness of breath, back pain, cough (with blood), and chest pain are some symptoms of pulmonary embolism.

  • Severe sepsis and septic shock: Sepsis or blood poisoning occurs when a bacterial infection spreads from one body part into the blood. Uncontrolled sepsis can cause septic shock that can lead to multiorgan failure. Symptoms of septic shock are rapid heart rate, low blood pressure, etc.
  • Multi-organ dysfunction: There can be several degrees of organ dysfunction that occur in a continuum, rather than at once. It can be caused due to septic shock.

  • Renal failure: Also known as kidney failure, it occurs when the kidneys cannot properly filter waste out from the blood. Reduced amount of urine, shortness of breath, swelling around legs, ankles and feet, nausea, etc. are some symptoms of renal failure.

  • Tropical diseases: These are diseases like malaria, dengue fever, and leishmaniasis; often caused due to insect bites. Fever, rashes, swelling of lymph nodes, and body aches are general symptoms to look out for.
  • Major cancer surgeries: These include thoracic cancer surgery, brain cancer surgery, renal cancer surgery, breast cancer surgery, gallbladder cancer surgery, etc.

  • Bowel surgery: Major surgeries can be bowel resection surgery, total colectomy, colostomy, etc. These can be performed if the patient’s bowel is affected or if they suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBS).

  • Pneumonectomy: It is the surgical procedure to remove a lung. The lung may be removed due to cancer, trauma, or other medical conditions.

  • Lobectomy: This is a surgery to remove a lobe of the lung. This removes the affected portion of the lung. It is done in the case of lung cancer, emphysema, tuberculosis, etc.

  • Sleeve lobectomy: This is done for central tumors of the lung. It removes a lobe along with a part of the stem bronchus.

  • Esophagectomy: A part or all of the esophagus is removed to remove cancer. This is the major surgery done for esophageal cancer.

The Critical Care Unit at Maxhealth Hospitals has state-of-the-art technology that equips our team of expert paramedics, nurses, and doctors to treat cases of emergency efficiently. We offer critical care transport that provides quick aid to patients. In our Intensive Care Unit (ICU), specially designed ICU beds provide emergency doctors with a quick and accurate glimpse of physiological information that is critical for treatment and care. We also have a pediatric intensive care unit that has expert pediatricians monitoring and providing care for critically ill children.

Patients in critical care unit with stroke have a high NIH stroke scale score and may have a compromised mental status. In these cases, intensive care medicine is required to:

  • Monitor cerebral blood supply (perfusion)
  • Monitor neurologic deterioration
  • Monitor intracranial pressure
  • Manage herniation syndrome with attentive ventilation
  • Provide surgical backup immediately
  • Hyperventilation
  • Osmotic therapy with medical management
  • ICU care and surgery in case of large infarcts
  • Intubation
  • Surgery such as decompressive hemicraniectomy

Cardiac Arrest & Heart Attack

Cardiac arrest & heart attack

A patient suffering from a heart attack should be brought to the emergency immediately. Our expert team of paramedics, emergency primary care physicians, and resuscitation specialists provide primary care in the time taken to reach the hospital. Basis the severity, the case needs to be monitored cloesly and post-cardiac arrest syndrome should be managed properly. Thus, it is important to monitor the patient to look for any complication of the heart, blood vessels, brain, or nerves.

Critical Care

Critical Care

Maxhealth Hospital’s Critical Care Unit is well equipped with specially designed beds. These motorized beds are accompanied with the latest technology required to monitor hemodynamic parameters and provide efficient treatment to the patient. We also have a High Dependency Unit (HDU) that caters to less critical patients and provides them with 24×7 care.

High Dependency Unit

High Dependency Unit

In high dependency unit, the patients are cared for extensively but not to the point of intensive care. Patients once stabilized in critical care unit are generally placed in this unit. HDU is thus an intermediate, stepdown, progressive care unit between ICU and wards. Intensive nursing and clinical care are provided to patients in the HDU, who require attention before regaining stability. A nurse is assigned to each bed to ensure quick and efficient care and monitoring.

Intensive Critical Care Unit

Intensive Critical Care Unit

Our emergency team has neurologists, internal medicine physicians, nurses, technicians, and cardiologists who provide round-the-clock centralized care for patients. All ICCU beds are specially designed and equipped with state-of-the-art technology to provide the best care to patients. Advanced systems like hemodynamic monitors, ICP monitors, IAP monitors, ventilators, and defibrillators are available to support the patient’s health. We team this with 24×7 diagnostic services like ultrasonography, transthoracic echo, MRI, etc.

In the case of road accidents or high altitude falls, the patient can experience trauma if vital organs suffer multiple injuries. He/she may suffer from severe bleeding, poisoning, severe burns, fractures, head injury, spinal cord injury, fits, or may even lose consciousness. The patient should be brought into the emergency ward immediately to be treated by trained professionals.At Maxhealth Hospitals, the critical care unit works with the trauma team, which consists of paramedics, anesthesiologists, physiotherapists, psychiatrists, surgeons from different specialties, and trauma surgeons. In case of severe accidents, a trauma team trained in the principles of Advanced Trauma Life Support (ALTS) handles the case and treats the patient
