Most of the doctors who work at the department have the highest or first qualification categories and wide work experience.
Each year we treat about 600 high-risk patients. These are pregnant and parturient women with obstetrical and extragenital pathologies, postsurgical patients.
At our department we deliver all up-to-date methods of anaesthesia for normal and pathological deliveries
and obstetrical operations – regional (spinal, epidural, CSE) and general anesthesia.
Each year we delivered about 900 anaesthesias. 80% of Caesarian sections are performed under regional anaesthesia which has been proved to be the safest method of anaesthesia for obstetrics according to the results of the evidence-based medicine researches. We use marcaine hyperbaric solution produced by Astra-Zeneka for spinal anaesthesia.
Propofol, ketamine, thiobarbiturate, sevorane – anaesthetics of choice for general anesthesia. We use different regional analgesia techniques either bolus injectios or continuous infusion of local anaesthic naropine for labours and vaginal deliveries (16% of all births).
All methods of anaesthesia are performed in strict compliance with world practice protocols and principals of evidence-based medicine.
For critical care and anaesthesia we actively apply modern methods of noninvasive monitoring of vital functions (cardiac rate, blood pressure, ECG, breathing rate, SpO2).
Our department is equipped with ventilators ( T-bird Vela, Newport), anaesthesia machine Siesta i TS and monitoring equipment (monitors ЮМ-300, capnograph-pulse oximeter Novametrix-7100, VR-monitor).
One of the methods of efferent therapy applied at our department is plasmapheresis on the apparatus Gemos-PF.
Doctors of our department consult the population of the city and region on the issues of anaesthesia and critical care in obstetrics.
