Multi-Disciplinary Critical Care Unit

At Apollo Proton Cancer Centre we can boast of a state-of-the-art 20 bed Multi-Disciplinary Critical Care Unit (MDCCU) which focuses on specialized Cancer Critical Care also known as Onco-Critical Care. The provision of such care focused on the critically ill cancer patient has several patient-centric advantages with greater scope for favourable outcomes.

This high intensive unit (senior intensivist directed unit) provides round the clock specialist driven treatment backed by cutting edge technology. The vision of this unit is to provide high end, dedicated care at highest standards with a human touch, keeping in mind the specific need of each cancer patient. All beds are equipped with the most advanced multi-parameter monitors with facilities for paperless record-keeping.

The critical care team, comprising of senior and associate specialists of high repute, well-trained nurses and technicians, is adept at providing high acuity care for all complex illness and multi-organ support with all facilities for extra-corporeal therapies when warranted. Additional provisions for positive and negative pressure isolation rooms, in adherence to strict guidelines, make this unit stand apart from others.

The bed spacing, natural illumination, orientation of facilities and scientific model are in compliance with international recommendations thereby providing the best opportunities for a speedy recovery. Other highlights of our care include the synchronized services of a team of clinical nutritionists, clinical pharmacists and infection control experts with an expertise in handling the specific requirements of the critically ill cancer patient. Carefully coordinated patient visiting hours and regular family counselling with treatment updates are among our other top priorities as we completely acknowledge the high-stress nature of the situation. The team of guest relations and care coordinators have been particularly trained and oriented to be of utmost compassionate assistance keeping the family’s need in mind. We strongly believe that every patient and family’s smile is our biggest reward.
