Paediatric Intensive Care Unit(PICU)

About PICU

The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) is a multidisciplinary unit that provides care for infants, children and adolescents who become critically ill or injured. Critical illness occurs when impending or existing failure of the respiratory, circulatory, nervous or gastrointestinal systems threatens the balance of oxygen and substrate supply and demand. Unless this state is prevented or reversed promptly, cells of the body will sustain injury or die. Conditions that commonly cause critical illness and injury include:

Severe infections
Poisoning
Drug overdose
Trauma
Extensive surgery
Congenital anomalies
Immunological disorders
.

Most of the hospital who have mother and child department claim to have a PICU but the fact of the matter is that they donít have proper technology that is required in a PICU. Also there are very few doctors or neotatologist in Gurgaon who have experience of handling children in PICU.
