Pediatric Intensive Care (PICU) Level III

The Pediatric Intensive Treatment Unit (PICU) is a hospital department that provides the highest level of medical treatment to sick kids. The PICU differs from other hospital locations, such as the main medical floors, in that it provides significant nursing care as well as continuous monitoring of heart rate, breathing, and blood pressure. The PICU also allows medical experts to give therapies that aren’t available elsewhere in the hospital. Dr. Shilpa Hazare is one of the experienced Pediatric Intensivist in Nagpur. She has overall 20 years of experience in this field. More intensive therapy includes the use of ventilators (breathing machines) and certain medicines that must be administered under medical monitoring.

Who Takes Care of Kids in the PICU?

The PICU employs a large number of highly trained pediatricians. However, not knowing who everyone is and what they do might be perplexing and intimidating at first. Most individuals will greet you and explain how they are engaged in your child’s care, but if they don’t, feel free to inquire. You should always feel free to ask the physicians and nurses anything about your kid and the treatment he or she is receiving.

The nurses in the PICU have extensive expertise caring for the hospital’s sickest youngsters. They’re the ones who are most involved in the day-to-day care of the children. In comparison to other areas of the hospital, the PICU has a larger nurse-to-patient ratio (in other words, each nurse cares for fewer patients, which gives them more time with your child).

Your child may be cared for by a number of doctors, but the attending physicians are in control. A pediatric intensivist is a doctor who completed a three-year residency in pediatrics following medical school, followed by three years of intensive care specialized fellowship training.

Residents (doctors who have finished medical school and are preparing to be pediatricians) and PICU fellows may be part of the PICU team (pediatricians training to be attending intensivists).
