Prof. SGM Chowdhury Stroke Unit

A high dependency unit is an area in a hospital, usually located closely to the intensive care unit, where patients can be cared for more extensively than on a normal ward, but not to the point of intensive care. Many of these units were set up in the 1990s when hospitals found that a proportion of patients was requiring a level of care that could not be blah blah

Prof. SGM Chowdhury High Care Unit

Coronary Care Unit

The main feature of coronary care is the availability of telemetry or the continuous monitoring of the cardiac rhythm by electrocardiography. This allows early intervention with medication, cardioversion or defibrillation, improving the prognosis. As arrhythmias are relatively common in this group, patients with myocardial infarction or unstable angina are routinely admitted to the coronary care unit. For other indications, such as atrial fibrillation, a specific indication is generally necessary, while for others, such as heart block, coronary care unit admission is standard.

Coronary care units developed in the 1960s when it became clear that close monitoring by specially trained staff, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and medical measures could reduce the mortality from complications of cardiovascular disease. The first description of a CCU was given in 1961 to the British Thoracic Society, the first CCU was located at the Toronto General Hospital in 1965. Early CCUs were also located in Sydney, Kansas City and Philadelphia. Studies published in 1967 revealed that those observed in a coronary care setting had consistently better outcomes. The first coronary care unit was opened at Bethany Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas by Dr Hugh Day, and he coined the term. Bethany Medical Center is also where the first “crash carts” were developed.

CT Scan – Multi Slice

Since its introduction in the 1970s, CT has become an important tool in medical imaging to supplement x-rays and medical ultrasonography. It has more recently been used for preventive medicine or screening for disease, for example CT colonography for patients with a high risk of colon cancer, or full-motion heart scans for patients with high risk of heart disease. A number of institutions offer full-body scans for the general population although this practice goes against the advice and official position of many professional organizations in the field.

Our features:

Reduce the radiation risk by up to 40%.
500 Slice multi detector CT Scan gives high quality image.
Reduces the scan time.
Clear image helps to get accurate results.
Latest ASRI Technology reduces distortions.

Funtional cardiac assessment
Characterization of congenital heart disease.
Detection of cardiac masses, pericardial diseases.

Apart from its extensive applications in cardiology the 64 slice VCT Scanner is used in.

High Defination 1.5 Telsa MRI:

The system’s innovative high definition technology enables acquisition of high resolution images of the body at a faster rate, paving the way for widespread but targeted clinical application.

The system provides good imaging speed and clarity with excellent resolution and better tissue identification.
The system perform the scan within half the time of the standard MRI.
In Addition to faster scanning time and better image quality, it offers it’s patient advanced with HDMR, such as:

Brain imaging with uncompromised image quality, despite patient motion.
Functional imaging to identify brain activity following a stroke.
Vascular imaging.
Evaluation of diabetic patient for low blood flow to the lower legs.
Extremely high-resolution images in the abdomen, for liver exams, with shorter breath holds, and better organ coverage than previously possible.
High-resolution images of Musculoskeletal system.

3D / 4D Ultrasonography with color Doppler facilities:

The main advantage of this new technology include improved assessment of complex anatomic structures, surface scan-analysis of minor defects, volumetric measutements of organs, spatial presentation of blood flow information and 3D examination of fetal skeleton. Modern 3D systems are capable of generating surface and transparent views depicting the sculpture-line reconstruction of surface structures of the X-ray-like images of fetal skeletal anatomy. Color Doppler facilities provides imaging and evaluation of vascular system.

Computed Radiography & Mammography:

Computed Radiography and Mommography is an advanced manipulation technology that can provide excellent imaging for cetection of lesions.

Observation Unit

Previous research has shown that observation units in a hospital can be an efficient way to care for certain patients, but only about one-third of hospitals in the United States have such units. Now, researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) estimate that maximizing the potential of an observation unit in a hospital could result in $4.6 million in savings annually for the hospital and $3.1 billion in overall savings for the health care system in the United States. These findings are published online by Health Affairs and will also appear in the journal’s October issue.

“We believe that this is the first attempt to quantify the financial impact of an observation unit,” said Christopher Baugh, MD, lead researcher on the paper and a physician in the Emergency Department at BWH. “Wider use of observation units may play a significant role in saving cost for the health care system and future policies that are focused on doing so should include support for observation units as an alternative tin short-stay inpatient admission,” Dr. Baugh said.
