The First Smart ICU in Kolkata and Eastern India has Begun Operations at HP Ghosh Hospital in Salt Lake

News Desk, News Nation 360 : The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) will now pair smartphones with its systems. Even though doctors diagnose critically ill patients by seeing them in person, they may be able to securely obtain information about the patient's physical condition over the phone if needed immediately. If required, plans can be made right away, making it much simpler to stabilise the patient. At Salt Lake's HP Ghosh Hospital, the first Smart ICU in Kolkata and Eastern India has begun operations. Utilising cutting-edge technology to remotely monitor patient conditions is the primary objective of the Smart ICU. Special alarms will immediately notify senior consultants, ICU-duty doctors and nurses, and other staff members when a patient's condition worsens. Simultaneously, the attending physician's mobile device will display the patient's current parameters and test results. The physician can give the resident doctor instructions over the

phone even if they are not there at the patient's bedside. Timely treatment will be beneficial to the patient. In many situations, a smart intensive care unit can improve patients' general health rates. The smart ICU has 43 beds when it first opens in phase I. According to the hospital's chief executive officer, Somnath Bhattacharya, complex patients will have a nearly 40% lower chance of dying as long as they receive ongoing care from specialised physicians. The Eastern India Heart Care and Research Foundation's premier hospital, which employs the newest technology available in Kolkata and Eastern India, has pledged to give the general public the best care possible. Renowned critical care specialists Dr. Hirak Bhattacharya and Dr. Trinanjana Sarengi will oversee this Smart ICU.
