The department is equipped with all facilities and handled with care. All of our departments have well-integrated services.

An intensive care unit (ICU), also known as an intensive therapy unit (ITU), or intensive treatment unit (ITU) is a specialized department in a hospital that provides intensive-care medicine, treatment and specific procedures.

We at Choithram Memorial Hospital offer a separate intensive care unit for all patients. Intensive care units (ICUs) have a very simple purpose, even though their practice seems complicated at first glance. A patient is kept in the ICU when the health condition becomes vulnerable. Our doctors, surgeons and nurses, who work in the ICU, routinely rotate through the departments to provide intensive monitoring and medical treatment to patients day and night.

Those admitted to the intensive care unit have life-threatening injuries or diseases. In intensive care, patients can only be transferred to the ward if their condition stabilizes.

Get 24/7 medical attention at Choithram’s Intensive Care Unit

In potentially life-threatening conditions, we provide 24/7 care to patients who require continuous monitoring by a multidisciplinary team. In cases such as hemodynamic instability (hypertension/hypotension), airway or respiratory compromises (such as ventilator support), acute renal failure, potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmias, multiple organ system failures, or when a patient is deemed too unstable, we even move them to a highly intensively monitored unit immediately.

Our Intensive Care Unit is highly technologically advanced and resource-intensive, integrating a wide range of specialties and technologies, holding out hope for patients who are acutely and critically ill. Intensive care unit (ICU), in Choithram Memorial Hospitals, holds unwavering commitment, precision, and synchronized teamwork for the well-being of patients.

Adequate Resources to Support Emergency

There is an exponential increase in medical emergencies every day. The number of acute cases in Indian hospitals is increasing as a result of traumas, and medical, surgical, gynecological, and pediatric emergencies. Hence, adequate resources are required, including well-equipped and sophisticated emergency rooms manned with agile doctors, paramedics, and staff nurses capable of handling a wide range of situations.

Emergency care does not begin and end in the emergency room because emergencies may happen anywhere and everywhere, so comprehensive care from pre-hospital support through patient transfer to the intensive care unit is necessary. As part of our 24/7 services, we have highly qualified consultants, who take the whole responsibility to manage our critical care area.
