On behalf of the Royal Care Super Speciality Hospital, I welcome you all for the 3rd “ANNUAL RCH ICU UPDATE”.

The theme for this year CME will be “OBSTETRIC CRITICAL CARE”.

There is a significant paradigm shift in the field of obstetrics wherein “young and healthy” women are no longer synonymous with pregnancy. Obstetricians are currently faced with the management of chronic medical conditions (i.e., Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension, Chronic heart disease, and Obesity) as women are becoming pregnant at increasingly older ages due to cultural changes and advancements in assisted reproductive technology.

With an increasing prevalence of chronic medical conditions and the associated potential for decompensation to critical illness among present day parturients, obstetricians find themselves on a new frontier.

Structured approach in the provision of care to the critically ill pregnant patient will serve as a foundation for future attempts to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality. I am sure that this CME will provide clarity, knowledge and skills in enhancing the outcome of critically ill parturients among the clinicians across the specialities.

I wish the organizing committee all the very best in making this year ICU UPDATE a grand success.

Dr. K. Madeswaran



Greetings from the organizing committee.

On behalf of the Institute of Critical Care Medicine at Royal Care Super Speciality Hospital, it gives me immense pleasure in inviting you for the 3rd “ANNUAL RCH ICU UPDATE”.

Theme based CMEs conducted by our team over the last two decades had an overwhelming participation and resounding appreciation from Critical Care Physicians, General Practitioners and trainees from different specialities. We are passionate about sharing knowledge and skills across the region to enhance the continuum of care in critically ill patients. We as a team take pride in inviting you to this year’s edition of the scientific session on “OBSTETRIC CRITICAL CARE”, which is poised to enrich knowledge and skill through the stalwarts in the field, sharing their expertise.

The scientific programme includes a workshop on day 1 which will provide hands-on approach in dealing with critically ill parturients. The second day symposium will host an array of didactic lectures, pro - con debate, interesting clinical scenario discussions and interactive question answer sessions. These interesting two days will cater to the needs of Practising Intensivist, Obstetrician, Anaesthetist, Emergency Physician, Internal Medicine Specialist Post Graduate Trainee and Paramedical team. The venue at Le Meridien will provide an apt atmosphere for the academic feast.

Looking forward to seeing you at the stellar CME event.
