Technology

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a treatment that uses a pump to circulate blood through an artificial lung into the bloodstream periodically for required duration.

In summary, it acts as a substitute for both heart and lung and enables oxygenation and maintenance of blood pressure extracorporeally (while working from outside the body) during instances such as heart surgery or heart/lung failure or shock

CLINICAL APPLICATIONS
  • Hypoxemic respiratory failure
  • Hypercapnic respiratory failure
  • Refractory cardiogenic shock
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Failure to wean from cardiopulmonary bypass after cardiac surgery
  • Heart transplantation or placement of a ventricular assist device
EQUIPMENT FEATURES
  • Makes available new therapy options using extracorporeal circulation and incorporates improved usability and additional safety
  • Light enough to be carried by one person and compact enough to be transported
  • Combines the complex technology needed for cardiopulmonary surgery with clear and concise handling necessary for safe and effective patient management
  • All controls and monitors are managed from a single panel for user-friendly operation

Ultrasound has evolved to become one of the most versatile modalities for diagnosing and guiding treatment of critically ill patients
CLINICAL APPLICATIONS
  • Non-invasive assessment of cardiac output
  • Assessing myocardial contractility and regional wall motion abnormalities
  • Deep venous thrombosis diagnosis
  • Diagnosing urinary bladder distension and hydronephrosis
  • Detecting pleural effusion
  • Rapid diagnosis of pneumothorax
EQUIPMENT FEATURES
  • Technology has improved penetration capabilities & provides excellent detailed resolution in difficultto-image patients
  • Allows visualization of low velocity micro circulation while evaluating organ perfusion of small vasculatures
  • Fully integrated fusion capabilities allow clinicians to achieve fast & effective fusion of CT/MR/PET with live ultrasound
  • Excellent ergonomics may help reduce repetitive stress injuries
  • Minimally invasive procedure which uses no ionizing radiation
  • Safer cannulations in ICU
  • Assessment of optic nerve health and extra vascular lung water

Cardiac Output Monitor is used for blood flow measurement from the aorta or transpulmonary artery

CLINICAL APPLICATIONS
  • Cardiovascular emergencies
  • Arrhythmia and ischemia detection
  • Organ dysfunction
  • Diagnosis of abnormal pulses for exploring potential disorders
EQUIPMENT FEATURES
  • Assessment of cardiac output
  • Better judgment of intravascular volume status
  • Better guidance for vasopressors and inotropes
  • Advanced clinical solutions to summarize and visualize data
  • Portable design allows easy monitoring
  • Ambient light adjustment for readability in nearly any environment

Medical ventilator is a breathing aid for patients who are incapacitated naturally and optimally

CLINICAL APPLICATIONS
  • Maintenance of oxygen/carbon dioxide levels in blood
  • Supporting Respiratory muscle Relaxation
  • Improving sleep quality
  • Easing-breathing and coughing
  • Supporting Hyperinflated lungs
  • Used during respiratory complications
EQUIPMENT FEATURES
  • Supports Invasive & Non-invasive ventilation with leakage compensation
  • The standard configuration includes several ventilation modes and options like Pressure Regulated Volume Control (PRVC) and Volume Support (VS) can easily be added on
  • Provides useful information on respiratory drive, volume requirements and the effect of ventilator settings
  • For continuity of care with no loss of treatment information, it is available for Magnetic resonance imaging (MR) and for Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO)
  • Sensor measurement for neonatal/paediatric and adult patients enables measurement of pressure and flow as close to the patient’s airway as possible
  • CO Analyser for end tidal carbon dioxide measurement gives important insight into the 2 efficiency of the ventilation
  • Setting a controlled mode allows the ventilator adapt to the current patient situation, switching between controlled and supported breathing in connection with patient effort
  • NAVA mode for better weaning of critically ill patients

Intensive care or critical care is a healthcare speciality that cares those who suffer from life-threatening illness, injury or acute disorders. Many people experience or go through critical illness or injury in their life.

Whenever there is a threat to life or life is in danger owing to a life-threatening incidence, accident or emergency situation – Critical care is provided – whenever an organ function needs to be supported, critical care devices are invoked. The best critical care is provided in specialized & sophisticated intensive care units (ICU). Critical care is not something which is offered only in a particular ICU setting – in contrast, it begins as soon as the patient enters the hospital owing to a serious injury or disease and continues throughout their hospital stay, treatment and then after recovery as well. But, the service is provided by a specialized team of qualified specialists.

The Department of Critical Care at Virinchi Hospitals is a level III centre with an extensive network of Intensive Care Units that provide responsive care for the management of all critically ill patients. The department is staffed by critical care specialists who offer care round the clock, and have access to diagnostic services including diagnostic laboratory and radiology services.

Additionally, critical care is coordinated along with a team of critical care nurses, pharmacists, dietician and other healthcare specialists. All of them, cohesively leverage their expertise to interpret critical information, access the best equipment, provide best service-oriented support to offer the care that leads to the best possible outcomes. Furthermore, the entire critical care team helps patients and their families with several strategies of improving their health and well-being.

Critical Care Nurses

Critical care nurses play a vital role in providing care to the patients and facilitating coordination between all people involved in imparting care to the patient. They continuously monitor patients’ health by communicating his/her health status to the team on a regular basis. Their expertise and round- the-clock monitoring help detect subtle but relevant changes in patient conditions so that complications or worsening health conditions owing to the critical illness can be dealt with quite efficiently in time. The nurses are quite close with the patients’ family and thus act as their well-wishers by being an integral part of their family.

Pharmacist or Clinical Pharmacologist

Clinical pharmacist is a certified specialist who is trained to take care of patients in general as well as critical care settings of a hospital.  A pharmacist is skillful enough in understanding the requirements of patients and working with physicians and nurses to impart collaborative care to the patients by imparting cost-effective and safe medication therapy.

Registered Dietitian

Dietician is an integral part of the critical care team. An ailing person who is recovering from his/her illness needs the support of a dietician for augmenting the nutritional status and promoting recovery at a faster pace.

Patient Care Coordinator

Patient care coordinator works with interdisciplinary and collaborative ICU team, and acts as a link between the patient, the family and the critical care team to ensure smooth delivery of care to the patient at all times. Such professionals have quite good understanding and special knowledge pertaining to care in a critical care set up owing to their professional experience, education, training and association with welfare policies, services and systems.
