Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Unit


The role of the Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Unit (UOC) is to assist the patient before, during and after their surgery in accordance with the very latest thinking on “perioperative medicine”.


The Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Unit looks after the anaesthetic needs of every branch of surgery dealt with at the University Hospital. The pre-operative outpatient service, meanwhile, helps reduce the risks of peri-operative morbidity and mortality. The needs of patients about to undergo an endoscopy (gastroscopy, colonoscopy, echo-endoscopy, ERCP), heart surgery (trans-oesophageal ECO), or interventional radiology, be it on an inpatient or an outpatient basis, are also looked after, including analgo-sedation.


The UOC ia also responsible for managing critically ill patients transferred from other clinical areas as well as patients undergoing highly complex surgery.


Particular attention is paid to ameliorating post-operative pain in a bid to save the patient, wherever possible, from any unpleasant side-effects of their surgery.


A Pain Treatment Outpatients Clinic also provides treatment based on the latest drugs as well as acupuncture.


The Acute Pain Service is available 24 hours a day to help hospitalised patients reporting with chronic pain. Patients suffering from pain in their lumbar-sacral region and large joints can also be treated on a day-hospital basis.
