We offer critical care transport that provides quick aid to patients.

A patient suffering from a heart attack should be brought to the emergency immediately. Our expert team of paramedics, emergency primary care physicians, and resuscitation specialists provide primary care in the time taken to reach the hospital. Basis the severity, the case needs to be monitored cloesly and post-cardiac arrest syndrome should be managed properly. Thus, it is important to monitor the patient to look for any complication of the heart, blood vessels, brain, or nerves.
Maxhealth Hospital’s Critical Care Unit is well equipped with specially designed beds. These motorized beds are accompanied with the latest technology required to monitor hemodynamic parameters and provide efficient treatment to the patient. We also have a High Dependency Unit (HDU) that caters to less critical patients and provides them with 24×7 care.
In high dependency unit, the patients are cared for extensively but not to the point of intensive care. Patients once stabilized in critical care unit are generally placed in this unit. HDU is thus an intermediate, stepdown, progressive care unit between ICU and wards. Intensive nursing and clinical care are provided to patients in the HDU, who require attention before regaining stability. A nurse is assigned to each bed to ensure quick and efficient care and monitoring.
Our emergency team has neurologists, internal medicine physicians, nurses, technicians, and cardiologists who provide round-the-clock centralized care for patients. All ICCU beds are specially designed and equipped with state-of-the-art technology to provide the best care to patients. Advanced systems like hemodynamic monitors, ICP monitors, IAP monitors, ventilators, and defibrillators are available to support the patient’s health. We team this with 24×7 diagnostic services like ultrasonography, transthoracic echo, MRI, etc.
