The design of the critical care unit has a direct impact on the functionality and performance of the critical care department. The Indian Society of Critical Care Medicine (ISCCM) has laid guidelines on Planning and Designing Intensive Care Units. Dr. Narendra Rungta was a part of this committee.
Critical Care – a Crucial Discipline in Medicine
Critical Care Medicine is a well recognized specialty in medicine. In emergencies, patients count on you to save their lives. With the technological advances taking place you need to be abreast and fully trained to carry out clinical procedures in life-altering emergencies. You need to have a multidisciplinary approach for every patient, unlike super specialists. Proficiency to recognise irregularities in a patient’s recovery process and to skilfully intervene without wasting time is critical in saving a patient’s life.
