The fundamental support system in critical care, Intensive Care Units (ICU), at Aster CMI Hospital provides efficient, dedicated, high quality evidence-based care to critically ill patients through a collaborative multi-disciplinary approach. The ICUs are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and manned by experienced doctors, ancillary staff, who are capable of handling patients with a wide range of serious medical complications. These include complex conditions ranging from sepsis to pneumonia, Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) and multi organ failure. The critical care team follows international protocols and quality indicators for best results. The ICU outcomes are monitored with tools like APACHE scoring and SMR (Standardised Mortality Ratios). These help the department benchmark outcomes against internationally reputed ICUs. This is one of the few facilities in Bangalore with a full-fledged medical team for infection control. Utmost priority is also given to safety and prevention of infections, especially with the recent rise of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs”. Aster CMI offers specialised ICUs including Cardiovascular Thoracic ICUs, Surgical ICUs, Medical ICUs, Neuro ICUs, Transplant ICUs, Paediatric ICUs and Neonatal ICUs.
