The the entire course of action started  when 42 years old resident of Bongaon, Mrs. Ananya Jaiswal was brought to DESUN, she was in an extremely critical condition with 65% burns. Ananya was burned accidentally by crackers while attending a wedding ceremony. There was 45% deep burns on her waist, shoulder, left hand, portion of abdomen along with the face and 20% light burns. Saving Ananya’s life was a real challenge for DESUN’s critical care team as the crucial 48 hours had already passed by; moreover she was obese with 5ft height and weighing 85 Kgs.

On initial screening DESUN’s critical care team found that Ananya had severe complication in infection (Sepsis and Septic shock), with low blood pressure and saturation level (amount of oxygen bound to haemoglobin in the blood expressed as a percentage of the maximal binding capacity).

Her haemodynamic (related with the flow of blood within the organs and tissues of the body)condition was found to be very critical. She was kept on multiple lifesaving support system like medical ventilation.

Ananya’scondition started deteriorating. Her organs started to dysfunction, in medical terms Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS). She was put on high end antibiotics and toughest infection control in the burn unit as only DESUN has state-of-art burn unit in Kolkata.

Further, her skin grafting was again a difficult task for the plastic and reconstructive surgeon of DESUN because of her obesity as in case of obese patients skin grafting is very difficult due to layers of fat deposited.This is one of the rarest cases of survival for a burn-victim. It was only possible because of the promptness of DESUN’s round the clock team of specialists comprising of critical care doctors, plastic and reconstructive surgeons and general physician.

It’s rare for anyone to survive with 65% burns that too for an overweight patient of 85 kgs, but Kolkata’s DESUN Hospital made it possible.

The state-of-art burn infrastructure of a burn unit at DESUN helped in Ananya’s speedy recovery. She was back on her feet after 16 weeks to go home. Though the recovery was a long procedure but it was a success. After a few follow ups she was found to be back in her normal routine.
