Whenever we hear the words ICU, we begin to panic. ICU often reminds us of dramatic scenes and strike fear in our hearts.
PICU – Pediatric Intensive Care Unit – Pediatric Intensive Care Units have been around since the 1950s, and are the best way to treat your child in case of serious health conditions.
The PICU is a vital part of the hospital that provides treatment and counselling, or emergency treatment to children in need of the highest form of medical care. A PICU is very different from other parts of the hospital, as the General Ward, in many ways. A PICU requires meticulous attention and constant monitoring by the nursing and support staff. The most important life-signs like heart rate, breathing rate, and blood pressure are continuously monitored at a PICU.
Ankura Women and Children’s Hospital runs a well-equipped Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) that is capable of treating multiple types of ailments among children. Whether it is illnesses or severe injury, children require immediate attention and care, as their journey to recovery might take longer than an average adult.
