Major Operation Theatre
The department enjoys the facility of having an exclusive theatre own which functions on all the working days with the entire spectrum of Maxillofacial cases being treated. It has been divided into the theatre main, anesthesia & pain clinic, autoclave room stores and a recovery room. A CD AUDIO SYSTEM for the convenience of the operating surgeon is a recent acquisition. The operating lights are imported from FRANCE (Angineux), which enables multiple operations to be carried out simultaneously. Anesthesia is administered through a MARK III BOYLES unit with MECHANICAL VENTILATORS. HP PULSE OMMETRY and CAPNOGRAPHY units are additional aids in patient monitoring during the procedure. The theatre has the latest lighting system & CENTRALIZED AIR CONDITIONING. The recovery room has a HP DEFIBRILLATOR to manage any unlikely turn during postoperative recovery.
The in-patient wards have at present 10 beds with two special rooms, which are almost fully occupied at any given time. Expansion of the present capacity is a moot point and will be a reality in the near future. Fully trained nursing staffs at all times in shifts monitor the wards. Two on-call duty doctors will be present round the clock to attend to any emergency that arrives at all odd hours. The wards too have a central oxygen and vacuum supply for good post operative monitoring and for ease in postoperative care of the patient.
