Integrated OT Suites

Exceptional design of the operating theatre suites minimizes the intricacies of the most intricate areas of the hospital. Therefore, Operation theatres at Virinchi Hospitals have been meticulously designed to optimize their capabilities. Punctilious Operating Theatre (OT) Suites integrated with superior technology help ease the operating capabilities of the surgeons and surgical team and ensure safe and efficient environment for the patient.

The integrated Operation Theatre suite epitomizes the futuristic technology integrated theatre with sophisticated technology and equipment including HD cameras, monitors, DVD recording, LED flux of lights, and efficient voice control systems. It is beneficial to both the patient and surgeon. For the surgeon, this suit has the potential to augment the results in minimally invasive surgeries and it offers the best possible solution to patient’s safety and better outcome.

Surgical site infections are quite common after surgery. Our operation theatres have laminar air flow systems that use High-efficiency Particulate Air Filters (HEPA) by which the particles as small as 0.3 microns can be removed. Thus, the usage of ultra-clean air minimizes infection rates significantly in the OT setting.

Smart ICUs

We have developed a SMART Intensive Care Unit (ICU) system that improves vital-sign monitoring of critically-ill patients. By collecting and analysing several vital signs simultaneously, the smart ICU system could be used to assist physicians and nurses in monitoring patient’s physiological parameters.

With the smart ICU, it is quite possible to potentially spot dangerous deviations from a patient’s ‘ideal’ vital-sign range and remedy problems quickly.

We have different types of ICUs for children

  • MICU-Medical ICU
  • SICU-Surgical ICU
  • NICU-Neonatal ICU
  • PICU-Paediatrics ICU
  • CICU-Cardiac ICU
  • CTICU-Cardio Thoracic ICU

The criticality of designing smart ICU’s lies in the proper understanding of IT, meticulous planning, diligent designing and creation of sophisticated infrastructure, which is efficient enough to provide proper connectivity, interoperability and better middleware solutions that offer better care.

Paediatric experts across specialities closely work together and thoroughly evaluate your child to diagnose the condition no matter how complicated it is and then provide the best treatment according to your child’s requirement.

Our paediatric surgeons are trained in minimally invasive ear surgery, which is the best alternative to the open surgery as the complications are less, pain is less, the hospital stay is short and recovery is faster.

Latest technology

 Our Paediatric experts use state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment techniques and equipment, including the robust 128 slice CT, 3T fMRI and scanning technology. All CT scanners are set appropriately to ensure that your child receives minimal exposure to radiation. Interventional radiologists provide on-site services. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) ECMO involves the use of a heart-lung machine to provide temporary heart and lung function in new-borns or young children to allow for treatment or healing.
