WHAT IS CRITICAL CARE?
Critical care (also known as intensive care) is the multiprofessional healthcare specialty that cares for patients with acute, life-threatening illness or injury. Most of us will experience a critical illness or injury, either as patient, family member or friend of a patient.
Critical care can be provided wherever life is threatened –at the scene of an accident, in an ambulance, in a hospital emergency room, or in the operating room, most critical care today, however, is delivered in highly specialized intensive care units (ICU). Various terminologies like critical care unit (CCU), intensive therapy unit (ITU), coronary care unit (CCU) may be used to describe such services in a hospital.
Critical care is provided by multiprofessional team of highly experienced and professional physicians, nurses, respiratory care technicians, pharmacists and other allied health professionals who use their unique expertise, ability to interpret important therapeutic information, access to highly sophisticated equipment and the services of support personnel to provide care that leads to the best outcome for the patient.
BIMS HOSPITAL Intensive Care unit is one of the biggest units of private hospitals in Bhavnagar, having 18 beds (including two Isolation) on the same floor with a central monitoring system and it has a moderately large sterilized area equipped with specialized, technical and monitoring equipment needed to take care of critically ill patients. We have a separate counseling room where doctors can counsel the patient’s relatives who have the physical and emotional impact of critical illness or accidental illness of their dear ones. At BIMS we have a dedicated waiting lounge for relatives of ICU patients.
