Letter which tells about my experience in ICU, RHC

I am Dr Satyam Shah. I joined ICU, RHC under Dr Prachee Sathe mam in the month of march, 2013.Before this period I never worked in any ICU.Initially I didn’t know much about how to manage critically ill patients effectively, not even simple parameters. Here in this ICU, during my 2 yrs tenure , I learned how to manage any patients when he admitted in ICU critically ill, importance of taking proper history, do appropriate physical and general examination and according to vitals also narrow down your differential diagnosis and start treatment accordingly and efficiently within golden hours. Here I also learned various emergency procedure like Central line, Arterial Line, Endotracheal Intubation, Dialysis Lumen insertion, ICD insertion, Thoracocentesis, ascetic tapping, Lumber puncture and so many which I never did before. I got tremendous exposure to variety of patients in ICU.I got the skills from Dr Prachee Sathe , how to take round, what important parameters you have to look in various critically ill patients within limited time period of day with perfection. I am blessed to have regular academic lectures here in ICU by our respected teachers like Dr Prachee Sathe, Dr Shilpa Kulkarni, Dr Tanima Baronia, Dr Sanmay Choudhry regularly once or twice per week which includes active management of various disease with recent guidelines. I really appreciate the co operation of my seniors and colleagues who helped me lot in any crucial situation either professionally or personally. Thank you so much Dr Sharad Yadav, Dr Arvinder, Dr Prashant, Dr Deepali, Dr Sandesh, Dr Manish ,Dr Vinay, Dr Sandhya for helping me. I also felt amazing seeing my juniors working very hard with tremendous efficiency even in too much work load. All these can happen only because of healthy and warm atmosphere in ICU. These 2 years changed my life a lot, like I gained ample amount of academic knowledge and tremendous exposure of versatile patients to put my academic knowledge into practical approach and eventually to be an efficient Intensivist.

At Last, I would like to refer my future juniors also to be the part of RHC ICU team under Dr Prachee Sathe for their academic career and Also I am going to assure them that it would be the best platform for every doctors to work dedicatedly and effectively in the management of critical patients.

I never like to leave this institute but sometimes due to some personal and professional reasons, someone has to take hard decision which I did.I am going to miss this facility forever.

Thank you
Yours Sincerely
Dr. Satyam Shah

Dr Narendra Fiske
Years 2014-15 & 2016-17

At present working as
ICU director,
Aastha Hospital, Jalna Maharashtra

Myself Dr Narendra Fiske is basically from a village of Buldana district, Maharashtra. I joined ICU Ruby Hall Clinic Pune for IDCCM. Before joining I was little reluctant, As I completed my UG & PG from Government institute, I was thinking that, only affluent society patients would come to this ICU. But I was wrong, Ruby ICU is full of patient, I had seen every type of patient here, I had seen that miracles happened..... but only if you followed the simple principle of madam that "just think that your dear one is laying on bed and not patient." Then one will give best for patient and miracle happened... madam taught us the same by her behaviour.. her dedication for work, love for ICU & ICU team, It was inspiring for newcomers like me. I heard from senior sisters of ICU, how she worked hard for establishing ICU, is really inspiring for everyone.
The most useful thing was that you would get a chance to discuss each case with Dr Prachee Sathe madam and Dr Shilpa Kulkarni madam during morning and evening round informing respectively, it wasn't lesser than a favourite feast for me. Obviously it wasn't easy task, because you have to make treatment plan for patient and justify it during discussion but it gives a lot of confidence and I came to know no of things which were not written in books and which were beyond the guidelines....
It was really a pleasant experience to work under your guidance. Madam I will assure I will try my best to follow your most important lesson that Be a good human being first, than things will take place....
I will like to thanks once again to Dr Prachee Sathe madam, Dr Shilpa Kulkarni madam and Dr Tanima madam for everything they did for me.
