Tiruchi hospital links its ICU care with Chennai centre

Image

An independent tele-ICU service for critically ill patients was launched by Gitanjali Medical Center here on Sunday.

Tele-ICU enables the hospital’s ICU unit to be connected to a big specialist ICU care centre in a different location, from where critical care specialists monitor and review the patient remotely through online data from connected patient monitors and real-time video images of patient conditions.

This endeavour has been the result of collaboration with Philips Healthcare, the technology provider, and InTeleICU, Chennai, from where the specialist will monitor the patients. The purpose of tele-ICU is not to replace bedside clinicians, but to provide additional clinical surveillance and support. By collaborating with the on-site staff, the tele-ICU can support care without distraction and deliver timely interventions when minutes may make a difference.

Speaking at the launch, Anand Rengasamy, Head, Gitanjali Medical Center, said the technology enables an ICU to be supervised 24x7 by the best specialists based in different locations. “Although bedside care providers are present in ICUs, monitoring all patients all the time is a big challenge. This is where a solution like tele-ICU can be extremely helpful,” said N. Ramakrishnan, Managing Director and CEO, InTeleICU.

The tele-ICU was put under a trial run at Gitanjali Medical Center for the past two months, which had a successful outcome and enthusiastic acceptance by the patients. The hospital has five beds allotted for tele-ICU and 18 patients have been treated so far, according to Dr. Anand Rengasamy.

“My mother had a brain stroke and was admitted to the hospital. With the help of doctors, we tried out the tele-ICU support for her and were able to save a lot on transportation expenses. We are happy to say that she is cured now,” said Prabhakaran, son of a patient who was treated using the facility at the hospital.

The tele-ICU was commissioned by M.S.Ashraf, senior physician, in the presence of M.Chenniappan, senior cardiologist, and R. Gunasekaran, senior physician.

World Bank team inspects health projects in Trichy

TRICHY: A team of experts from the World Bank, on Monday, inspected the health projects being implemented through the Tamil Nadu Health Systems Project (TNHSP) in Trichy district. The team was particular about the projects on the prevention of non-communicable disease (NCD).

The inspection by the five-member team headed by Dr Bushra Alam is aimed at overseeing the World Bank-funded projects like comprehensive emergency obstetric and newborn care (CEmONC), NCD, 108 services, tribal outreach programmes, mortuary van services, biomedical waste management, hospital management system (HMS) and health management information system (HMIS).

The team commenced its inspection at the primary health centre (PHC) in Mannachanallur and government hospital in Srirangam in the morning. The members inspected the training programme on biomedical waste management for the doctors and nurses at K A P Viswanatham government medical college in the city. They later visited the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital. The team inspected the construction of the three-storey CEmONC centre at the hospital campus which would be dedicated for advanced treatment of newborn babies. Constructed at a cost of Rs 6.26 crore, the building is funded by World Bank. According to PWD officials, the construction work is over and once the equipment are sanctioned, the block would become operational.

During their inspection at NCD centre in MGMGH, the team members insisted the staff to rope in more patients aged between 30-35 to undergo medical tests to check hypertension (HT), diabetics, cervical cancer and breast cancer, because 53% of the death occur due to the four NCDs in India. Women should undergo the tests for the four diseases, whereas men can go undergo tests for HT and diabetics. According to hospital sources, the staff struggled to rope in patients to undergo such tests.

One of the team members Shree Latha told TOI, "The World Bank-funded projects are being implemented very well especially at Srirangam. The construction of the CEmONC project is over. But I am not sure about the inauguration of the building."

According to sources, the World Bank released about Rs 1,200 crore twice since 2005. However, some of the projects are yet to become operational. So, the period of the projects may be extended for another year.

The team would visit Karur and tribal areas in the next two days.
