LUCKNOW: King George's Medical University will reserve 10% beds in all wards in the high-dependency category for critical patients. There are some 4,000 beds across different hospitals of KGMU which have close to 100% occupancy.

Orders to this effect were passed by vice-chancellor Ravi Kant here on Monday. "We are a tertiary care center, therefore, significant number of patients come to us with multiple complications and we must be better equipped to handle the situation," he told reporters.

The high-dependency beds in KGMU would be equipped with basic life support facilities like automatic electrical defibrillators with monitor and pulse oxy-meter that comes very handy in managing cardio-respiratory crisis of patients. Electro cardio grams would also be reserved for these beds.

Letters were dispatched to heads of different department to provide details of the beds available, number of beds to be reserved and availability/shortage of equipment. "After the gap-analysis, orders would be placed for equipment," said Dr Ved Prakash, additional medical superintendent coordinating the project.
