All necessary treatments are available that can maintain vital functions such as the circulatory system, respiratory and neurological functions whenever they have been altered in ways that endanger the patient’s life. In addition, they also treat the disease that caused the decompensation.
Anaesthetists provide anaesthesia for surgical interventions; they visit sick patients before the anaesthesia and monitor the patients’ condition during and after the operation.
The “anaesthetic routine” consists of a pre-operation visit, evaluation of the operation risks and agreement with the surgical team, deciding between general or local anaesthesia as required for the surgical intervention, by the diagnostic investigation and as a general pre and post operation practice in order to keep the vital signs safe.
This “routine” is used for scheduled operations or emergency operations: Maxillofacial surgeries, Otolaryngology, Ophthalmology, Dentistry, Neurosurgery, Neurosurgery - Neurotraumatology, Neuroradiology, Cardiac Surgery, Cardiology, Paediatric Surgery, for the Department of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging, Plastic Surgery, Burn Centre and the Laser treatment Centre.
Research activity is also conducted in this department that is particularly dedicated for paediatric, cardiac and ophthalmic surgery anaesthesia.
The Intensive Care Unit provides intensive care to patients that require support and close monitoring for vital body functions (cardiovascular, respiratory and neurological functions) in case they have been severely affected and represent a survival threat.
Intensive monitoring is also carried out to monitor vital signs of patients whose vital functions are threatened and therefore need to be maintained.
The department also guarantees postoperative intensive care to those who have had major operations in health care facilities that cooperate with the service.
In 2011, 664 patients have been hospitalized; about one-third due to a major trauma. Since the Hospital of Parma is the Siat Trauma Centre for the Western Emilia Romagna (Integrated system for trauma care) the Intensive Care Unit hospitalizes people with major traumas, often associated with head trauma, from a catchment area of about 1.000.000 inhabitants. For this reason, the facility is fully equipped with the necessary technological instruments.
