Coronary Care Unit
The unit is staffed by a specially trained physician and nurses capable of serving patients with heart attack, heart failure and arrhythmias.
This 24-bed facility provides care for the sick patients who may require ventilatory support, invasive and non-invasive advanced life support such as emergency pacing (transvenous and trans-thoracic) and intra-aortic balloon pump support for a failing heart. Hemodynamic monitoring including blood gas analysis enables the management of patients on various therapeutic medications for heart attack and heart failure. CCU protocols help to provide therapies per guidelines and recommendations. Infection control protocols, 1:1 critical care nursing, the 24×7 availability of a trained physician/cardiologist code blue team have helped in improving outcomes in our CCU, and ensures immediate access to our cathlab.
