Emergency and Critical Care Technology

Overview Fashion

Overview

Emergency and critical care technology is an area of allied health sciences that provides support to patient-centred and highly effective care to critically ill patients. It is the specialised and comprehensive care of patients with life-threatening disorders, from pre-hospital assessment to release from critical and acute care settings. A critical care technologist will have in-depth knowledge of advanced life-saving techniques, as well as the working and handling of all the devices and equipment used in hospital ICUs and CCUs and will thus provide life support to critically ill patients and assist them in surviving the critical situation.

In the absence of a registered medical practitioner, these technologists are trained to monitor equipment, record essential data, and share vital data with physicians, as well as to offer first-aid to patients. They are trained to handle a wide range of injuries and physical ailments, as well as transport patients to outside facilities for further care. As a result, they can work with hospitals, nursing homes, community health centres, medical colleges, and super specialty hospitals.
