Mission

  • Anesthesia: performance of the anesthetic procedures necessary for surgery and diagnostic-therapeutic procedures, both urgent and programmed, in and outside the operating group, required by the various surgical operating units, guaranteeing optimal safety levels.
  • Pre-operative preparation: specialist assessment of clinical conditions and possible risk factors of patients who are candidates for surgery, for the purpose of planning an anesthetic strategy.
  • Intra-operative assistance: monitoring and constant clinical and instrumental assistance of the patient during surgery or diagnostic-therapeutic procedures.
  • Post-operative assistance: clinical surveillance at the end of anesthesia of variable duration depending on the patient’s condition and the type of surgery performed, and adequate post-operative pain control.
  • Intensive Care: hospitalization and treatment of patients in serious condition, for which particular therapeutic aids are needed (continuous monitoring of vital functions, artificial ventilation, cardiocirculatory support, therapies for kidney failure, artificial nutrition, etc.).
  • Resuscitation interventions: treatment of clinical emergencies in any hospital location (from the emergency room to all hospital wards, to outpatient clinics, etc.) and to patients of any age.
  • Medical transport: assistance to at-risk patients during transport inside (from ward to ward) or outside the hospital (from hospital to hospital).
  • Procedures for ascertaining death and possible removal of tissues and organ donation.
  • Insertion of implantable chemotherapy systems.

Intensive care

The Intensive Care unit is located on the ground floor of the San Giacomo Hospital, and has 8 beds, 6 of which can function simultaneously; 4 are located in an open space area while the other 4 are in closed rooms, suitable for longer stays or for patients in isolation.

Due to the complexity of the conditions treated, the ICU team collaborates with other specialists, such as cardiologists, internists, surgeons, neurologists, gastroenterologists, hematologists, infectious disease specialists, physiatrists, physical therapists and others.

Since 2003, the Intensive Care Unit is a member the Italian Group for the Evaluation of Interventions in Intensive Care (GiViTI), which aims to improve the level of care through the epidemiological control of the results achieved year after year. All data are collected in compliance with current legislation on privacy and processing of sensitive data and with the approval of the Ethics Committee. The contact person for the project is the Head of the Intensive Care Unit, who is available by appointment to provide information on this topic.
