Critical care Hospital in Mumbai
Critical care or Intensive care is a key super-specialty for patients who are critically ill. The Critical Care units at Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai, are a combination of many specialties and technologies, offering a real chance of survival to patients who are acutely and critically ill. Our ICU’s are designed and managed based on the fact that methodical organization of Critical Care services influences important overall outcome measures such as mortality, length of stay and infection rates. There are multidisciplinary ICUs as well as ICUs dedicated to post cardiac surgery patients, stroke patients, post-transplant patients, as well as special ICUs for neonates and paediatric cases.

We have certified Neuro-Intensive Care nurses who work within these units.
- Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU): A specialized service in larger hospitals that provides in-patient care for critically ill patients on surgical services. As opposed to other ICUs, the care is managed by surgeons trained in critical-care.
- Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU): This ICU caters to patients with congenital heart defects or life-threatening acute heart conditions such as cardiac arrest.
- Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU): This specialty unit cares for neonatal patients who have not left the hospital after birth. Common conditions cared for include prematurity and associated complications, congenital disorders or complications resulting from the birthing process.
- Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU): Paediatric patients are treated in this intensive care unit for life-threatening medical problems such as asthma, influenza, diabetic ketoacidosis, or traumatic brain injury. Surgical cases may also be transferred to the PICU postoperatively if the patient has a potential for rapid deterioration and requires more frequent monitoring, such as in spinal fusions or surgeries involving the airway such as removal of the tonsils or adenoids. We also have specialized paediatric cardiac intensive care units, where patients with congenital heart disease are cared for. The unit also can handle cardiac transplantation and postop care of cardiac catheterization patients if required.
