The Department of Anesthesiology
and critical care at BHMRC provides expert care in the Operation Theaters (OT), Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU), Pre Anesthetic Checkup Clinic (PAC), Pain Clinic and the Casualty. The department consists of over 12 consultants and 20 residents. The 15 OTs are extremely spacious and well planned with laminar flow air conditioning and Hepa filters to maintain absolute sterility. Each OT is equipped with the latest generation low flow anesthetic workstations with built-in ventilators. Our department was the first and still one of the very few in the country to acquire a Target Controlled Infusion (TCI) system for computer controlled delivery of IV anesthetic agents Modern modular monitors are used for continuous monitoring of Pulse, Blood pressure, ECG, temperature, invasive pressures, end tidal CO2 and anesthetic gases, depth of anesthesia etc. There are dedicated OTs for Cardiac Surgery, Neurosurgery, Renal transplant, Joint replacement, Laparoscopic, Hysteroscopic, Urology, Thoracic and Vascular surgery etc. The most complex and diverse type of surgeries are performed here on many critically ill patients varying in age from premature babies to centenarians. The OT’s function during office hours for elective surgeries; and round the clock for emergency surgeries. For post- operative care of patients, the two PACUs (12 and 8 bedded) have piped gases and multi-parameter monitors on each bed. For critically ill surgical patients, the 16 bedded SICU (including 2 reverse barrier nursing suites) has modern ventilators, non invasive ventilation systems and modular monitors. A dedicated and motivated team of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, technicians etc. provide round the clock care of these patients. The Anesthesiology department at Batra Hospital has an ‘Acute Pain Service’ which provides all these facilities to patients undergoing surgeries, or those involved in accidents and having pain due to fractures etc. We also look after patients in labour and provide epidural analgesia for painless labour. We strive to make the perioperative period a relatively pain free and pleasant experience for the patient.
