Treatment & Procedures

Patients with life threatening conditions or those with time critical conditions like heart attack, stroke or major accidents are managed in a separate dedicated zone called the Resuscitation Bay. The patients are shifted directly to this bay without having to wait and the doctors and nurses shall immediately get to assess and start interventions to stabilize the patient. It's here that the patients are put on ventilators, chest is compressed and shocks delivered in an attempt to start a heart that has stopped beating, broken limbs are splinted and bleeding controlled. Special venous lines are secured and medications to improve the heart's pumping and improve blood pressure are started. Emergency Physicians use state of the art diagnostic equipment to quickly scan the body for internal injuries.

These are some examples of emergencies that require prompt visit to our ED:

  • Blacking out or unconsciousness
  • Severe or unusual bleeding that won't stop
  • Any accident on the road, at home or at the workplace
  • Severe allergic reactions from insect bites, food or medications
  • A gaping wound or broken bones
  • Severe chest pain
  • Breathing difficulty, asthma attacks
  • Suspected stroke
  • Suddenly can't speak or move
  • Loss of vision or hearing
  • Severe burns
  • Severe abdominal pain, persistent vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Drug overdose or swallowing poison
  • Suicidal or homicidal thoughts
