The Department of Accident and Trauma Care is functional 24 x 7. We have an “ICU on Wheels” which is rushed to the Emergency spot to pick up the patient. The ambulance caters to all emergencies and is equipped with Cardiac monitors, Oxygen, Suction, Emergency Medicines and staffed by trained paramedics who can perform emergency life-saving maneuvers. The moment an accident or trauma patient arrives, he/she is rushed to the Emergency Room where the immediate ‘first aid’ is given.
Necessary examination / investigations are done by the attending trauma surgeon.
Prashanth has the personnel and the equipment to resuscitate a poly traumatized patient who is critical. Apart from the attending trauma surgeons and support staff, trained paramedical staff are available round-the-clock. The Department is manned by surgeons in all specialities who are all involved in the treatment of multi-system injuries. A state-of-the-art Nephrology unit which tackles renal failure in traumatized patients is also available.
