Paediatric Intensive Care

Pediatric Intensive Care, often abbreviated as PICU, refers to a specialized medical unit within a hospital that provides intensive care for critically ill infants, children, and adolescents. This unit is staffed with healthcare professionals who have specialized training in pediatric critical care to manage a wide range of severe medical conditions.
When you or your loved one requires critical care, having access to advanced medical technology, experienced physicians, and skilled nursing staff becomes paramount. At NUmed intensive Department of Critical Care Medicine, we are committed to delivering the highest level of comprehensive care, encompassing all three elements.
Patients: PICUs treat patients from newborns to teenagers who require critical care due to severe illnesses, complex medical conditions, or major surgical interventions.

Conditions: Pediatric intensivists, nurses, and other healthcare providers in the PICU manage a variety of conditions, including severe respiratory distress, cardiac issues, neurological disorders, trauma, infectious diseases, and post-operative recovery.

Multidisciplinary Team: The care in a PICU is typically provided by a multidisciplinary team that includes pediatric intensivists, pediatric nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, nutritionists, and other specialists. This team collaborates to address the unique needs of critically ill children.

Advanced Monitoring: Critically ill pediatric patients often require advanced monitoring, such as continuous cardiac monitoring, mechanical ventilation, and intravenous medication administration. The PICU is equipped with specialized equipment to meet these needs.

Family-Centered Care: Family involvement is crucial in pediatric intensive care. Healthcare providers strive to provide family-centered care, offering support, communication, and education to parents and family members throughout the child's stay in the PICU.

Emergency Response: PICUs are equipped to respond rapidly to emergencies and may serve as a referral center for hospitals in the region. Transport services may be available to bring critically ill children to the PICU for specialized care.

Postoperative Care: In addition to treating medical emergencies, PICUs often provide postoperative care for children who have undergone complex surgeries, ensuring their recovery is closely monitored.
