The team members of the Perioperative Medicine and critical care Department of Nepal Mediciti Hospital work together for a single purpose: to provide quality care to all patients. The perioperative and critical care team provides service in the operation theatre (OT) conducting around------- surgical procedures annually. There are seven world-class modular Operation theatre and a separate Obstetric theatre. The department’s services are not only limited to the OT. We provide anesthetics to approximately 3000 patients in Gastroenterology suite, for endoscopic and colonscopic procedures. We are one of the very few centers of the country providing 24 hours obstetric analgesia service (painless delivery). Anesthetic services are also provided at the radiology department for radiological procedures (sedation for MRI, CT guided biopsy, Radiofrequency ablation) and cardiovascular laboratory (Cath Lab) procedures.
Depth of anesthesia monitoring is an integral part of service provided during a surgical procedure. Ultrasound guidance is the standard of care for all conventionally blind procedures like regional blocks and vascular access. There is the provision of Scavenging system in the operation theatre to ensure that the service providers are also safe.
