The Department of Internal Medicine is making a coordinated effort in meeting the challenges of bacterial resistance. While virtually any patient presenting with myocardial infraction will benefit from Aspirin and thrombotic therapy, there may not be a single best antibiotic for pneumonia. The physicians are thus gearing up to formulate an antibiotic policy for the hospital and adapt to the changing paradigm of internal medicine. Conscientious efforts are being made to shift from “Empirical based medicine to Evidence based medicine”.
The department maintains high alertness in dealing with the seasonal infirmities and tropical calamities. Managing the patients admitted with Dengue and chikungunya during the recent outbreak of these viruses proved beyond doubt the capability and capacity of the Internal Medicine team of Maxwell Hospital, Varanasi. The department treated more than 500 patients affected by these viruses with almost 100% success rate.
Department of Internal Medicine has been rendering social and community service in and around Varanasi on periodical basis. The primary aim is to detect chronic disorders like diabetes, hypertension, heart problems and cancer. The camps are free of cost and provide a wake up call to a number of people.
Besides the social and community obligations, the department gives special emphasis to the health of the individuals.
