What is Neuro ICU?
A neuro ICU is an Intensive Care Unit which is particularly devoted to a high - quality care of patients with the neurological problems that are life-threatening in nature. The concept of neuro ICUs came into existence about 25 years ago in a response to the more specialised needs for some of the most critical neurological disorders. This was possible because of the growing techniques along with modern science and technology.
The neuro ICU of our hospital is a complete state of the art and a full-fledged one designed to provide almost all sorts of advanced neurological care to the normal patients as well as the patients in the emergency. Our neuro ICU consists of 16 beds with ventilators attached to each of the beds so that we are able to efficiently and effectively handle all sorts of neuro as well as neurosurgical emergencies at its best. The Neuro ICU is basically multidisciplinary in nature which consists of neurologists, neurosurgeons, anaesthetists, radiologists & intensive care specialists work very closely with each other along with a team of specially trained & experienced nurses respiratory therapists, nutritional experts and a number of others at the same time.
The prime benefit of having so many specialists at the same time is because of the fact that a wide range of expert care is brought into each of our patients for providing with the most effective care so that they are able to survive the emergency that had occurred.
