Internal Medicine and Critical Care

Internal Medicine is the specialty dealing with prevention, diagnosis & treatment of adult diseases. In concert with the sub specialties, the department provides comprehensive care to patients ailing with multisystem diseases. The department of internal medicine is an ideal platform for patients requiring multiple specialist care as we evaluate the patient wholly and coordinate diagnostic and therapeutic services of multiple departments. The department is supported by latest laboratory and imaging services.

Critical care is an important specialty involving diagnosis and management of life-threatening illness which requires invasive monitoring. Critical Care is maintained through very specialized Intensive Care Unit, otherwise called Intensive Treatment Unit/Critical Care Unit. After initial stabilization at an emergency room, operation theatre or recovery room, patients are shifted to ICU. This department includes Physiotherapists, Dieticians, Critical care nurses and ICU Technicians.
