Critical Illness is a condition that poses a continuous threat to the life and wellbeing of the patient affected, Critically ill patients are in need of support of the various organs that make life possible.
This support can be given with the administration of drugs and/or with the use of machinery that temporarily take over some the body functions that are severely altered by the disease. Our aim is to offer the best possible service to our critically ill patients with our expertise, modern equipment and compassionate approach.
The intensive care unit (ICU) at Burjeel Hospital has 14 beds equipped with state of the art monitoring and diagnostic equipment.
We are proud to offer our critically ill patients the most modern techniques of extracorporeal cardiac and respiratory support.
Depending on the degree of clinical illness, a team of highly trained specialists will provide optimal care and assistance to patients in the departments where they have been admitted.
The hybrid originally referred to the result of interbreeding between two animals or plants of different species, but it has more recently be used to mean the combination of two different methods to achieve higher performance.
The Hybrid OR can be described simply as the combination of fixed angiographic imaging in an operating room
A hybrid OR gives surgeons and medical staff the flexibility to juggle and finish different procedures — from open-heart surgeries to stenting coronary arteries — without moving between floors or discharging patients. Stent patients would be normally discharged then readmitted, but this gives surgeons the ability to do things in combination.
Utilizing a hybrid OR in those various ways directly impacts patient safety. Because everything can occur in the operation room (reduced infection), emergencies or complications can be handled in one spot without putting a patient's safety at risk.
Because patients would not have to have their surgery staged over a period of days, things are more convenient and, consequently, cost effective, OR staff do not have to be relocated for multi-faceted procedures, physicians have state-of-the-art imaging devices for better visualization and improved safety prevents unnecessary operations. If you do procedures in the hybrid OR, there is no relocation of staff or time delays, and it's much more cost effective to do it in the one, right location.
