neuro intensive care

Neuro Intensive Care Units are the fastest growing critical care units in medicine today. The Neuro ICU at The Kauvery Institute of Orthopaedic and Neurosciences is a tertiary and multidisciplinary intensive care unit, outfitted to treat patients with life threatening neurological disorders and diseases of the peripheral and central nervous system. Our multidisciplinary team of specialists, work together provide comprehensive care to patients with frequent updates to family members. The Neuro Intensive Care is equipped to treat a spectrum of neurologic disorders and diseases, such as:

  • Acute Ischemic Strokes
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Intracerebral Hemorrhage
  • Tumors of the brain and Spine
  • Arteriovenous Malformations
  • Encephalitis
  • Coma
  • Encephalopathy
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Meningitis
  • Neuromuscular disorders such as Myasthenia Gravis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • Seizures / Epilepsy
  • Severe neurological manifestations of medical illness
  • Subarachnoid hemorrhage / brain aneurysms
  • Post-operative management of neurosurgical patients
Intensive Care Unit

Our team comprises of Intensivists, pulmonologists,neurosurgeons, neurologists, anaesthesiologists, critical care nurses specially trained to treat neurological problems, physical therapists, occupational therapists, clinical pharmacologists and speech-language pathologist. This collective expertise allows us to produce the best results in treating every single patient under our care.

The Neuro Intensive Care Unit, functions 24x7 and each of the closed units are designed to provide complete intensive care management of patients placed in emergency care for disorders such as neurology, neurosurgery, Orthopaedic, spine, interventional neuroradiology and otolaryngology.

The prime advantage of care in the NICU is the 24 x 7 monitoring by the trained neuro nurses and also the immediate availability of on-call physicians, specialized interventions and neuroimaging. This critical care techniques enable the experienced staff to correct or reverse any medical condition that is progressively worsening, so as to prevent any permanent brain damage.

At the Kauvery Institute of Orthopaedic and Neurosciences Neuro Intensive Care Unit, we use sophisticated techniques that are unique to neurological intensive care to monitor our patients such as:

  • Transcranial Doppler Ultrasonography
  • Intracranial Pressure Monitoring
  • Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography
  • Invasive Hemodynamic Monitoring
  • Continuous Electroencephalographic Monitoring
  • Jugular Venous Oxygen Saturation Monitoring
  • Near Infrared Spectroscopy

In a serious illness, our advanced techniques are capable of improving the patient’s prognosis, but many of these treatments to be optimally effective, must be administrated in the initial stages of the illness. Listed below are therapeutic techniques employed by our neuro intensive care unit, in the treatment of neurologic ill patients.

  • Ventricular Drainage
  • Cerebral Angioplasty
  • Endovascular GDC Coils
  • Thrombolysis
  • Hypertensive Hypervolemia Hemodilution
  • Hypothermia
  • Specialized Pharmacotherapies
  • Plasmapheresis
  • Phrenic Nerve Pacing

To surmise, the paramount goal of The Kauvery Institute of Orthopaedic and Neurosciences, Neuro Intensive Care Unit, to the patients under our care, is to focus on delivering exceptional and personalised neurological care.
