Anaesthesiology & Intensive Care

YOUR ANAESTHESIOLOGIST
He is a specialist who is specially trained to provide the following services:-

PRE-OPERATIVE ASSECSSMENT
When patient has to undergo an operation, the anaesthesiologist visits the patient to reassure him and discuss the type of anaesthesia to be used. He also identifies any other concurrent medical conditions, which may affect the anaesthetic and takes steps to stabilize these conditions. He may also order a sedative the night before surgery to allow the patient a restful sleep.

ANAESTHESIA FOR SURGICAL PROCEDURES
Most patient scheduled for an operation are fearful of pain and wrought with anxiety. The anaesthesiologist's role is to ensure that a patient has no pain throughout the procedure. He may do so by the following techniques:-

-General Anaesthesia
The patient is asleep and is unaware of the operation until it's over when the anaesthesiologist will wake him up.

-Regional Anaesthesia
The patient is awake but feels no pain because the operative site, e.g. Hand or legs is made pain free. If the patient is anxious, the anaesthesiologist may make the patient calm or sleepy by the administration of appropriate drugs.

-Local Anaesthesia
The patient is also awake. This procedure is performed by inject of local anaesthetic medication to numb only a small area of nerves at the site where the surgeon plans to operate such as for cataract surgery.

POST-OPERATIVE MANAGEMENT
After the operation, the patient may feel pain for a day or two. The anaesthesiologist can help to relief the pain by several measures. One modern method is the use of a computer-aided device, which delivers a pain killer every time the patient presses a button. The patient is therefore in full control of his own pain relief.

OBSTERIC PAIN RELIEF
It is now possible to deliver a baby without labour pain. The anaesthesiologist can perform an epidural to give Pain relief throughout the entire labour and until the baby is delivered.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AND RESUSCITATION
A seriously ill patient can suddenly stop breathing or develop a cardiac arrest. The anaesthesiologist is part of the team who will resuscitate such a patient and restore him to life. This setting can happen in the Accident & Emergency Department when a patient is just admitted and occasionally in others parts of the hospital.

MANAGEMENT OF CRITICALLY ILL PATIENTS IN THE INTENSIVE CARE UNIT (ICU)
Very ill patients need cardio-respiratory support in the intensive care ward. Such as patients have an unstable blood circulation and unable to breath well. Patients also have poor nutrition and need very close monitoring. Here, the anaesthesiologist acts as an intensivist and breathes for the patients with the help of a life support machine (ventilator) until the patient's condition improves

Diagnostic Imaging Services

Radiology is the branch or specialty of medicine that deals with the study and application of imaging technology like x-ray and radiation to diagnosing and treating disease. Radiologists are physicians that utilize an array of imaging technologies (such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to diagnose or treat disease. Interventional radiology is the performance of (usually minimally invasive) medical procedures with the guidance of imaging technologies. The acquisition of medical imaging is usually carried out by the radiographer.

Facilities and services

1. Ultrasound
2. Computerised Tomography ( CT Scan)
3. Magnectic Resonance Imaging (MRI)-open system
4. General X-ray

General Radiography

A basic radiological imaging procedure on body parts upon clinician request

Ultrasonography

A technique of using ultrasound modality to produce images within the body to diagnose and high frequency of sound wave is use instead of radiation.

Utrasound Examination

Ultrasound images help in the diagnosis of a wide range of diseases and conditions, including stomach problems. During an ultrasound test, high-frequency sound waves, inaudible to the human ear, are transmitted through body tissues using an instrument called a transducer, which transmits the information to a computer that displays the information on a monitor.

It is used to create images of soft tissue structures, such as the gallbladder, liver, heart, kidneys, pancreas, bladder, thyroid gland, prostate, female reproductive organs, and even of babies in the uterus.

Ultrasound can also measure the flow of blood in the arteries to detect blockages.

Types of ultrasound examination:
- Abdomen
- Pelvic region
- Liver, gall bladder and pancreas
- Thyroid
- Breast
- Heart (echocardiogram)

MRI

Application suite

Neuro Suite
-Diffusion
-ADC maps
-3D Myelo

Angio Suite
-Contrast enhanced MRA
-Non-Contrast MRA and Venography

Body Suite
Ortho Suite
Pediatric Suite
Scientific Suite (Radar)

Also known as magnetic resonance imaging, is a pain-free non-invasive test used to produce two dimensional images of body structures by using intense magnetic fields on to patient body.

Common MRI investigation
- Brain - Lesion , bleed or looking for early detection of infarct
- Extremities and joints.
- Spines and spinal cord
- MR angio.

How to get our service
Request for x-ray examination must be referred by consultants and general practitioner via

1. Request form
2. Appointment via phone (need referral letter upon arrival)
3. On line request (available within hospital premises)
4. Memmo instruction by authorized qualified medical personnel.

CT Scanning
Computed tomography or CT scan (previously known as CAT scan, the "A" standing for "axial") uses a high amount of ionizing radiation (in the form of X-rays) in conjunction with a computer to create images of both soft and hard tissues.

These images look as though the patient was sliced like bread (thus, "tomography"-- "tomo" means "slice"). The machine looks similar to an MRI machine, but is not related.

The exams are generally short, most lasting only as long as a breath-hold.

A CT scan can be used to study all parts of your body, such as the brain,chest, abdomen, pelvis, or an arm or leg. It can take pictures of body organs, such as the liver,pancreas, intestines, kidneys, bladder, adrenal glands, lungs, and heart. It also can study blood vessels, bones, and the spinal cord.

It combines many x-ray images with the aid of a computer to generate cross-sectional views and, if needed, three-dimensional images of the internal organs and structures of the body. A CT scan is used to define normal and abnormal structures in the body with high resolution images.

CT Scan is used to diagnose such as:
- Brain defect of bleed
- Bone defect
- Lung defect
- Bleed in other organs
- Lesion
- Vertebral defect
- CT Angiography (CTA)
- 3D reconstruction
- Dental MPR scan

What you need to do for CT examination.
- Patient must be in the department 15 minute earlier .
- Patient with medication must inform the radiographer on duty.
- Radio opaque should be removed

Note : Liquid diluted gastrografin (contrast media) to be taken orally 20-30 minutes before examination (as required).
