Fortis Healthcare’s Critical Care offers 24x7 care to patients in potentially life-threatening conditions, who need continuous monitoring to be carried out by a multi-disciplinary team. Such situations arise in case of haemodynamic instability (hypertension/hypotension), airway or respiratory compromise (such as ventilator support), acute renal failure, potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmias, the cumulative effects of multiple organ system failure, or even in the crucial hours after major surgeries when the patient is deemed too unstable to transfer to a less intensively monitored unit.
This discipline, generally the most technologically advanced and resource-intensive area of medical care, integrates many specialties and diverse technologies, holding out the hope of survival to patients who are acutely and critically ill. The care, provided in a specialised unit of a hospital called the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), requires unwavering commitment, precision and synchronised teamwork. Fortis Memorial Research Institute is one of the leading hospitals in managing Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) and septic shock patients. We are equipped with ECMO (ExtraCorporeal Membrane Oxygenation), Volumetric Capnography and Volume View (extravascular lung water) to manage ARDS patients.
