Consultant Anaesthesiologist at NU Hospitals
Dr. Parimala strongly believes that anaesthesiologist is a perioperative physician. The care begins in the preoperative period , continues in the intra operative period and ends with postoperative care. Physical and intellectual presence of anaesthetist throughout the surgery is essential to take care of the expected and unexpected events. She takes pride in being completely responsible for the patient whether they are awake or asleep and make sure patient is stable , comfortable and pain free in the postoperative period. In her words “I am proud to say WE CARE … WHEN YOU ARE NOT AWARE !!!
and believe PATIENT SAFETY IS THE FIRST PRIORTY”.
