Continuous improvement aiming to reach and maintain excellence in patient’s care.
We provide anaesthesia services for many areas in the hospital including casualty, main operating theatres, labour room, Dabbous cardiac centre as well as we provide remote anaesthesia for patients undergoing computed tomography, magnetic resonance image, cardiac catheterization, endoscopy and audiology investigations. It’s our responsibility also to evaluate patients preoperatively through anaesthesia outpatient clinic on daily basis to preparthe patients for their operation and request the necessary investigations in addition to discussing the anaesthetic choice with the patient and any risks involved. All patients must visit the anaesthesia clinic by appointment before their operation to ensure adequate preparation for their surgery and avoid cancelation of the procedure.
We also provide critical care services. Al-Adan hospital adult ICU has 46 beds (40 in main ICU + 6 in Dabbous Cardiac Center ICU). We started our ICU services in 1983 with 16 beds and DabbousCardiac Center ICU started in 2010 with 3 beds capacity for post cardiac surgery patients. It’s our responsibility to treat critically ill patients who need level 3 care, both surgical and medical patients or patients who need continuous or invasive monitoring for an acute condition.
Our service includes providing advanced respiratory support as high flow oxygen therapy, non-invasive, invasive ventilation and VV ECMO. We are providing hemodynamic support like inotropic and vasopressor support and mechanical support (IABP and VA ECMO) and also dialysis for unstable patients or patients needing dialysis with continuous monitoring.
In Kuwait, V-V Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation service (ECMO) was established in Adan ICU in 2017. It is an extracorporeal technique of providing prolonged cardiac and respiratory support to patients whose heart and lungs are unable to provide an adequate amount of gas exchange or perfusion to sustain life. And now we are the center of gold excellence of ECMO and we are ELSO certified ECMO training center in Kuwait.
