INTENSIVE CARE UNIT (ICU)

Regency Medical Centre’s high-tech Intensive Care Unit is designed so as to cater to the most serious of cases. It is manned around the clock by a battery of specifically trained critical care consultants, dedicate support staff and nurses and technicians. With 10 beds and the latest technology on hand it has everything required on hand to provide patients the best treatment possible.

RMC provides intensive care unit is designed so as to provide care for people that are critically ill or in a seriously unstable condition. Patients in these conditions require regular observation and monitoring. There is a team of specially trained nurses that are constantly caring for the patients and monitoring their progress. ICU doctors are specifically trained in providing emergency care and know intimately how to care for serious cases.

The team of highly specialised professionals is backed by a vast range of super-speciality services. There are trauma and cardiac teams, re-constructive and rehabilitation technicians and nurses. The aim of the staff is to provide the shortest turn-around time for diagnosis and treatment of the trauma patients.

Patients can be admitted to the ICU for a variety of reasons. Some would require close monitoring following a major surgical operation. Some might need to stay under observation following a serious head injury. There can also be those who have difficulty breathing and would require ventilator support. Patients with heart or blood vessel problems, that is patients with very low or very high blood pressure, those who have just suffered from a heart attack or have an unstable heart rhythm, would require to be in the ICU. Patients that have been diagnosed with an imbalance of salts, chemicals or minerals in their body also require round-the-clock monitoring. The same goes for patients that are recovering or suffering from serious infections. This is necessary in order to ensure that their condition does not deteriorate any further.
