Critical Care Department

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 the 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

Our critical care team works seamlessly with the Emergency and Cardiac Services departments to deliver time-sensitive assessments, diagnoses, and treatment needed to help those who are in critical condition. They work closely with cardiologists, anesthesiologists, surgeons and other specialists in the hospital to help bring each patient the specific care needed for their condition. Rajagiri hospital has a set of highly skilled staff and specialized equipment specially designed to provide patients with comprehensive medical care.
