SICU

Surgical Intensive Care is a specialty of intensive care related to the care and treatment of patients who are seriously or critically ill after surgery. Sometimes patients may be admitted to the SICU as a precaution, to monitor them if they need close monitoring to prevent deterioration. At Apollo Cradle, our SICU units closely monitor our patients, in cases where they exhibit unstable symptoms. Patients requiring surgical intensive care may need support to stabilize their blood pressure or breathing, kidney function, heart rhythm or support organs that are not functioning.

At Apollo Cradle, we have a state-of-the-art, round-the-clock SICU to care for expectant mothers, whose conditions may be unstable and volatile. We have a team of specialists in critical care related to maternity, with the knowledge and skills to provide comprehensive care for patients who are faced with difficulty during delivery.

In the unlikely event that a mother’s condition will need longer intensive care monitoring, our doctors ensure that her health is stabilized at Apollo Cradle's SICU, before being transferred to the nearest Apollo Hospital. Our transfer procedures are robust, and ensure that our patients deal with minimal disruption. Our ambulances are also equipped with monitoring and ventilator support to ensure patient safety. Apollo Cradle patients receive priority admissions in Apollo Hospitals, being a part of the same chain.

Conclusion

We, at Apollo Cradle, understand the stress you experience when your loved one may require medical attention in a SICU. Thus, we follow a strict 24 hours-a-day policy, to ensure that your medical needs get met at any time of the day.
