The department of Anaesthesiology, Critical care & Pain medicine is one of the essential clinical departments of GMC Anantnag, Kashmir.

The department at present has 7 faculty members headed by Prof. Imtiyaz Ahmad Naqash. The department has 8 senior residents, one medical officer and four junior residents besides other technical staff which include staff nurses, theatre technicians, nursing aids and sanitary attendants.

The department has seven operation theatres at GMC’s hospital providing anaesthesia services to patients belonging to General Surgery, Orthopedics, ENT and Ophthalmology. One operation theatre is available 24X7 for emergency services. Besides this there are two operation theatres at M&CCH which is an associated hospital of GMC Anantnag. These operation theatres are dedicated for gynecology & obstetrical surgeries. All the operation theatres are equipped with anaesthesia workstations with both basic mandatory and invasive monitoring facilities.

The department also runs an outpatient Pre-anaesthesia clinic (PAC clinic) between 10AM to 2PM where all patients planned for elective surgeries are pre-operatively evaluated before surgery and cleared for anaesthesia and surgery after proper optimization.

The department is in the process of starting a Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) where all surgical patients requiring critical care shall be managed. The department has 5 Drager (Savina 300) critical care ventilators. A detailed proposal for requirement of other essential equipment and manpower required for running the SICU has been forwarded to Principal/Dean for necessary action.

The department also plans to run a pain clinic in near future where patients with chronic and intractable pain shall be managed using different management techniques.

Following inspection by National Board of Examinations (NBE) in August 2021, approval for starting DNB courses in the specialty of Anaesthesiology has been granted and we are expecting 6 students for DNB courses in the specialty of Anaesthesiology this year.
