The Department of Anesthesiology

The modern Anaesthesia is comparatively of recent origin dating back to a century and half, before which “Surgery was an agony”. Introduction of general Anaesthesia combined with aseptic techniques, permitted increasingly extensive and complex operations to be performed. Duties have extended beyond operating rooms to cardiopulmonary resuscitation, critical care and pain management services.

The Department of Anaesthesiology offers undergraduate teaching programs and research and administration in various areas throughout the hospital.

It also provides expertise in the care of critical patients in ICU, and management of acute and chronic pain. The scope of anaesthesiology includes non-surgery related pain management, management of painful syndromes; monitoring, restoring and maintaining haemostasis; teaching CPR and evaluating and applying respiratory therapy.

The anaesthesiology team comprises specialist doctors with training in hemodynamic monitoring, management of Thoracic, and Lumbar pain, blocks under ultrasound guidance, fibre optic intubation and intra and post-operative ventilator management.
