Department of anesthesiology at Sri Ramakrishna Hospital started with one anesthetist in the year 1978 and was going on for 7 years when in 1985 two more anesthetists joined the department. Over the years the work load kept on increasing which necessitated employment of more anesthetists and today we are six consultants catering to the need of various surgical specialities except cardio thoracic surgery which is taken care of by two specially trained anesthesiologists.
We have 8 fully equipped OTs with all state of the art design, monitoring facilities, anesthetic equipments and pharmacy support with latest drugs available. Under one roof we have facilites to summon any specialist if need arises to manage an emergency crisis.
We are accredited for Diplomate in National Board and we already have 4 students. Regular classes, seminars, tutorials, discussions especially problem based case discussions - all go on with vigor and enthusiasm. Our team members take care of Intensive Care Unit of the hospital by turn.
We routinely do many complicated cases, surgery on patients with various medical diseases (other than the one for which the patient has come), very many trauma cases involving multispeciality like orthopedics, neurosurgery and plastic surgery and sometimes dental surgery.
We cater for pain relief in labor. We have well developed protocols and we already have a plan for teaching and counseling antenatal patients on this aspect. Pain relief and palliation for terminally ill cancer patients are also undertaken.
We do quite a number of renal transplants in our OTs and we have plans to commence liver transplantation in future.
