Our mission at JNU Hospital Jaipur is to deliver state-of-the art, excellent anaesthesia services, pain management and intensive care in the perioperative setting. The department is committed to place the interests of the patients as its paramount concern. The adoption of newer technology with a human touch has propelled us to reach greater heights.

The work of Anaesthesiologist is not just confined to the state of the art Modern OTs but also beyond it. It extends from the Preanaesthesia clinic (PAC) to Post Anaesthesia Care Units (PACU) and 5 bedded Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) where patients are closely followed by our team. The team also provides expert advice on ventilator and other critical support in ICU and ICCU. The OT complex and Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) are located on 3rd floor of the hospital. The team provides clinical anesthesia services and critical care management of surgical patients 24 hours a day. The surgical specialties to which the department provides anesthesia services are General Surgery, Orthopedics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, E.N.T., Ophthalmic, Pediatric surgery, Urology, Plastic surgery, Gastroenterology, Cardiac surgery, Surgical Oncology and Neurosurgery. We have 2 separate OTs near Casualty for emergency surgical procedures, 2 separate OTs for handling emergency obstetric cases and 3 OTs on 3rd floor in main OT Complex. Besides these, we also provide anesthesia services for psychiatry (ECT) and Radiodiagnosis.

Services and Treatments Offered

Specialized Services

The department is organised into the following functional sub-units:

The Cascade pressure stabilisers are a range of multi-bladed units especially designed to control room air pressures. Suitably sized air relief pressure stabiliser is strategically placed and enables differential room pressures to be maintained and ensure that when doors are opened between clean and dirty areas there is sufficient air flow through the open door to prevent cross contamination.

The scrub stations are specially designed to ensure that the OT staff adheres to highest standards of sterility. They are made up of stainless steel with both manual and automatic operations available. A thermostatically controlled mixing valve automatically maintains water temperature, not to exceed 46 degree Celsius.

A. Anaesthesia outside the OT area

We are now as active outside as within the operating room, being a predominant resource in the intensive care, pain management, emergency and prehospital care. What has evolved is the “peripatetic (a person who walks from place to place) anaesthesiologist” – an appropriate term applied to anaesthesiologists providing care in offsite locations. The demand for anaesthesia care outside the operating room continues to grow, driven by trends in advanced diagnostic techniques and the financial advantages of providing care out of the hospital setting. Within the next decade, it is estimated that 20-40 percent of anaesthetic cases may be performed outside the operating rooms as per western data and around 5-10% in India.

In future, anaesthesiologist will be spending half the work in time in areas other than the operating room.

The sites where we work outside the OT area can be categorised into:

  • The site not designed for the administration of anaesthesia e.g. emergency room for cardioversion, burns dressing rooms, psychiatric wards (ECT).
  • Areas where equipment is fixed as neuroradiology suite for CT, MRI, radiotherapy.
  • Specially built operating rooms outside the complex e.g. day care surgery, IVF OTs.
  • Specialised diagnostic suites e.g. endoscopy rooms.
  • Resuscitation and emergency rooms.
  • Pain clinic and pain relief procedures room.
B. Modular OTs

A pre-engineered integrated approach to the construction and co-ordination of operating rooms is adopted. Our operating rooms are of highest quality and standards. The modules are built of steel with sterile coatings to provide anti-bacterial, anti-algal and anti-fungal features for long and safe run. The OTs are designed to have smooth surfaces with no visible joints. The absence of sharp edges prevents any chances of accumulation of stagnant air or builds up of contamination. The inner wall panels are constructed to withstand strong impacts, such as from the bombardment of trolleys. The wall-mounted equipments are flush mounted and sealed into theatre wall by means of sterile jointing system.

There is a provision of light integrated planair system to reduce airborne bacteria in an operation theatre. The unidirectional vertical laminar flow system delivers the clean filtered optimum air into the area in which operation is to be performed and sterile equipments are exposed. The system of integral lightning provides an illumination level in excess of 1500-lux at the wound site and electronic stepless dimming down to 3%, without flicker.

The Cascade pressure stabilisers are a range of multi-bladed units especially designed to control room air pressures. Suitably sized air relief pressure stabiliser is strategically placed and enables differential room pressures to be maintained and ensure that when doors are opened between clean and dirty areas there is sufficient air flow through the open door to prevent cross contamination.

The scrub stations are specially designed to ensure that the OT staff adheres to highest standards of sterility. They are made up of stainless steel with both manual and automatic operations available. A thermostatically controlled mixing valve automatically maintains water temperature, not to exceed 46 degree Celsius.

C. The Perioperative Period

Preanaesthesia Evaluation

For us, your visit for PAC is to know about you and your medical history to allow us to make the best anaesthesia plan for you to have the best experience possible. There are special features of a medical history important to anaesthesiologists, and this will also allow you the time to ask questions you may have and receive teaching about your upcoming anaesthetic. In this meeting feel free to talk over any worries you have about your surgery. We appreciate if you bring a family member or a friend with you for this visit. We will discuss about the possible anaesthetic methods, their benefits, risks and your preferences. We can then decide together what would be best for you.

During this visit you may have a blood sample taken for tests. More tests like ECG, X-ray and pulmonary function tests will be done if required. If you are going to have your hip or knee joint replaced you may be asked to visit a physiotherapist. Sometimes we send you to see a medical physician or a cardiologist to make sure that you are ready to have your surgery. If you are worried about anaesthesia, this is the time to talk about it.

You will then be instructed by the surgeon to get admitted to the hospital on the morning of the surgery or an evening before.
