ACCIDENT & EMERGENCY CARE
Our emergency is dedicated for caring the sick in their most vulnerable state of health. At Musale hospital ,Physicians are highly educated and have training that crosses different medical specialties to meet demanding challenges. They are assisted by well-trained emergency nurses. As soon as a patient enters the department he/she is examined by a triage nurse and allotted to a zone depending on how serious he/she is. The very serious patients are immediately seen by a doctor. Patients with life threatening conditions or those with time critical conditions like Labour pain , sepsis or major accidents are managed in a separate dedicated zone called the Resuscitation Bay. The patients are shifted directly to this bay without having to wait and the doctors and nurses shall immediately get to assess and start interventions to stabilize the patient. It’s here that the patients are put on life support in an attempt to start a heart that has stopped beating, broken limbs are splinted and bleeding controlled. Special venous lines are secured and medications to improve the heart’s pumping and improve blood pressure are started.
The New Manipal Emergency Department is a state-of-the-art Emergency Department equipped to handle emergencies of any kind. Emergency Physicians use state of the art diagnostic equipment to quickly scan the body for internal injuries.
