AIIMS Bhubaneswar opens ICU facility for cancer patients

The department of medical oncology and haematology at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Bhubaneswar has started a dedicated seven-bed intensive care unit (ICU) in a bid to provide comprehensive care to patients with cancer and haematological disorders.

Inaugurating the facility, director, AIIMS Prof Mukesh Tripathi affirmed the commitment of AIIMS Bhubaneswar towards medical oncology/hematology patients.

Among others, AIIMS Bhubaneswar medical superintendent Dr Sachidananda Mohanty, department HOD, Prof (Dr) Prabodh Das, associate professor Dr Sourav Kumar Mishra, and assistant professor Dr Ilavarasi Vanidassane with other dignitaries graced the occasion.

The ICU facility is a much-needed shot in the arm for the institute in general and the department in particular. The department of medical oncology/haematology caters to the needs of cancer patients and other haematological disorders not only from Odisha but also from the neighbouring states.

The ICU has been equipped with the latest medical equipment, including a ventilator and a monitor for each bed. Patients with cancer and haematological disorders will be immensely benefitted from this facility. Even the dialysis facilities can be done. Telegraph India
