Global Hospital, Parel, Mumbai has launched a dedicated neuro critical care and stroke unit with modern ventilators and with the latest invasive and non-invasive facilities for monitoring of vital functions. The unit is designed to address the clinical needs of neurological and neurosurgical patients to improve their outcomes and a committed team of intensivists, pulmonologists, infectious diseases specialists, nephrologists and cardiologists will provide support round the clock in this Neuro Critical Care and Stroke Unit. Neurological disorders can be termed as the diseases of the brain, spine, and nerves that connect them.
Dr Shirish M Hastak, regional director, Neurology, Stroke & Neurocritical Care, Global Hospital, Mumbai, added, “Patients in the Neurological ICU receive skilled care from an interdisciplinary team that includes physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, dietitians, and pharmacists. The team physicians are specialists with training in neurology, stroke, intensive medicine, and interventional neuroradiology. The team nurses are trained in techniques for examining the brain and central nervous system. Detection of subtle changes in the neurological states of patients is extremely important as this may be lifesaving in certain cases. This needs expertise in neurocritical care.”
