Many departments in the medical college, especially the surgical specialties, depend on the services provided by the Anaesthesiology Department. These include general surgery, orthopaedics, obstetrics and gynecology, otorhinolaryngology, dentistry, ophthalmology and super specialties such as plastic surgery, urosurgery and neurosurgery.
Administering anaesthesia requires skill. And who better to instruct students than our faculty who have more than 25 years of experience. The academic and clinical team comprises several able assistants and qualified anaesthesiologists. Students will be witnessing our expert team that caters to 8 operation theatres and extends ancillary services to the surgical ICU and expertise to the respiratory ICU. The extensive academic program in the department organizes discussions and debates on interesting cases and case presentations.
The Anaesthesiology Department meets the needs of several medical procedures. Our anaesthesiologists handle both elective and emergency cases on a daily basis. Several of these cases involve the fields of obstetrics and gynaecology, orthopaedics and general surgery. Every patient is given an assessment before anaesthesia is administered.
The department also provides assistance in the management of ventilator patients and in the immediate post-operative management of patients in the surgical ICU. Along with the team of specialists and teaching faculty, students are exposed to all types of anaesthesia techniques such as regional, general, airway anaesthesia, total intravenous, hypotensive anaesthesia and nerve blocks, as well as combinations of these techniques.
