Critical Care

Smiling nurse and infantHospital-based pediatric critical care specialists, also known as pediatric intensivists, provide 24-hour care to children in unstable critical condition due to a serious illness or injury. Pediatric intensivists care for children experiencing conditions such as:

  • traumatic injury
  • respiratory failure
  • septic shock
  • seizures or neurological emergencies
  • cardiac problems

Critically ill children are monitored in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), where care is provided by an experienced team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who work closely with families and referring physicians to provide the most appropriate medical care and resources.
