Critical Care Medicine

The Critical Care Center is also known as Intensive Care Unit. The intensive care specialists at MIMS provide relief and care to patients suffering from life-threatening diseases, patients recuperating from high-risk surgeries or injuries. The mandate of the department insists on significant commitment on the part of specialists, which they follow with due diligence.

The department is equipped with high-end monitors, catheters, feeding tubes, breathing machines, intravenous tubes, beeps and alarms and all the best monitoring equipments of international standards. These equipments are sophisticated enough to nullify the risk of infection during treatment. The support teams at the critical care department are empathetic and friendly people who provide support and highest quality care to not just the patients, but their relatives as well. They are clinically trained to provide emergency care during acute situations. They are in constant communication with the concerned doctors so the care will always be specialized and timely.

The critical care center at MIMS is quite spacious and exudes peace and calmness, which are very important for recuperating patients. Infection control and hygiene standards are very seriously undertaken at the hospital, so while visiting hours are flexible, visitors may have to wait in order to see their relatives recuperating inside the critical care, especially when interventions are being carried out. Since critical illnesses can be a stressful time for the patients, the ambience of the unit is set in such a way that they will feel cared for.
