An intensive care unit, or ICU, is a specialized section of a hospital that provides comprehensive and continuous care for persons who are critically ill.
The 60 minutes after a traumatic injury is called as the “golden hour,” a window of time in which a victim is thought to have the greatest chance of survival if given medical attention.
My partner and I visited the Regency City Clinic in Kanpur following several failed fertility treatments at an earlier fertility clinic for high oestrogen levels. The staff members were very professional and empathetic. The preliminary visit resulted in a gynaecological test, that led to the early diagnosis of a mild ovarian dermoid cyst. Following the removal of the cyst, we were successful in our first IVF trial. I have been blessed with a baby boy 2 months ago. Thank you, Regency!
I was very apprehensive about being diagnosed with painful stones in my kidney. I was afraid of undergoing surgery. After, meeting with renal specialists at Regency, I found out that every stone does not require an operation. With modern techniques of ESWL (Lithotripsy) PCNL & URS, which are non-invasive, I finally got rid of the stones for all times.
I came to Regency Hospital, Kanpur for the treatment of my liver condition. We learned about Regency through friends in my workplace. The team at Regency provided me with top-notch service and personalized attention, much more than I expected. The staff is very helpful and cooperative. I already have and will surely recommend this remarkable health institution to my family and friends in the future.
I had terrible pelvic pain from the last 6-7 months, and that’s when I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts. Thinking and reading about the cysts made me horrified, but I wanted to cure myself as soon as possible. My aunt, being a doctor herself, recommended Regency Hospital for the treatment of my cysts, and I went ahead with her opinion. From one month, I have been regular with my periods, I have no pelvic pain and I have gotten rid of the cysts. Thanks, Regency!
Anaesthesia is given to patients so that surgery and other medical procedures can be carried out safely and without pain. The word anaesthesia means ‘loss of sensation’. People under anaesthesia will ‘lose’ feelings of pain and other sensations.

An Anaesthetist administers your anaesthesia.
There are different types of anaesthesia:
It depends on the type of anaesthesia. It might be administered via injection, inhalation, topical lotion, spray, eye drops or skin patches.
It can take anywhere from 30-60 seconds depending on the type of anaesthesia given to the route.
No. After you’re unconscious, your anaesthetist places a breathing tube through your mouth or nose to make sure you maintain proper breathing during the procedure.
After getting anaesthesia in your bloodstream, some of the people might experience:
Please note that these symptoms are very mild.
