The PICU is the section of the hospital that provides sick children with the highest level of medical care. It differs from other parts of the hospital, like the general medical floors, in that the PICU allows intensive nursing care and continuous monitoring of things like heart rate, breathing, and blood pressure.
The PICU also allows medical staff to provide therapies that might not be available in other parts of the hospital. Some of these more intensive therapies include ventilators (breathing machines) and certain medicines that can be given only under close medical supervision.
NICU stands for Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and is an area of the hospital that specializes solely in the treatment of newborns. PICU stands for Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and is where children are taken when they require the highest level of quality pediatric care.
Pigeon Medical can offer the equipment used in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and the NICU equipment as well, such as CPAP use in neonates and CPR for babies. Equipment of high quality is needed for both neonatal CPAP on babies and CPR for infants, and you can find it here! Contact us today to learn more!
