Newborn babies who require intensive medical care are frequently admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The NICU is equipped with advanced technology and trained healthcare professionals to provide specialized care for the smallest patients. NICU also have areas for babies who are not critically ill but require specialized nursing care. In utero transfer of babies is far better than transfer of babies after birth.
Following are some of the indications for admission in NICU:
- Premature and low birth weight babies.
- Babies with breathing difficulty, pneumonia
- Babies needing surgery
- Any baby needing special care.
- Babies with high jaundice needing phototherapy/exchange transfusion.
- Babies with respiratory distress syndrome needing surfactant administration and ventilation.
We cater all the care personally to the treatment of critically ill babies, who require ventilation (life support) and intravenous feeding. Our Neonatal Care Level 3 is equipped with 15 beds with multi-channel monitors, infusion pumps and ventilation facilities.
We have facilities for high-frequency ventilation, a highly sophisticated form of artificial respiration in which very sick infants are ventilated at respiratory rates of up to 600 breaths per minute, which helps in the management of complicated cases that need advanced care.
Babies and their mothers have the opportunity to bond before discharge. We also provide mothers with guidance and help in managing their babies with confidence prior to discharge and provide training to care for the special needs of their newborn.
In addition to our trained neonatology consultants, we have a dedicated team of specially trained healthcare professionals who are involved in your baby's care, including NICU fellows, nurses, respiratory therapists, occupational therapists, lactation consultants, pharmacists and medical social workers (MSW).
Our NICU is fully equipped and staffed to provide 24/7 care for critically ill newborns. Our neonatal nurses have received extensive training to provide personalized care to patients. We also encourage the active participation of parents in the management of their newborns, should their NICU stay be prolonged.
