Care Of Your Little Ones In Nicu’

The birth of a little one brings immense joy to the family, feelings difficult to define and emotions not controllable. But when the fate decides, unforeseen circumstances do arise and small babies can have problems ranging from being born premature, having birth defects, jaundice, breathing difficulties due to various reasons and catching infections from their environment. Caring for such babies is not an individual’s job; it’s a team effort involving the neonatologist, the allied doctors and the most important, nursing staff. So, the goal is not only survival but intact survival of the baby without any physical and mental disabilities. We provide the highest level of care available for critically-ill newborns with the state of the art technology.

The unit is staffed by a neonatologist and trained nurses and resident doctors, who are specializing in managing sick newborns. In addition, neonatal cardiac and surgical facilities are also available round the clock to keep the level of care a top priority for such small babies.

Medical advances have improved survivability and long-term health for babies born prematurely as early as 25 to 26 weeks; however, they have an increased risk of medical problems due to their immature organ systems. Without a protein called surfactant, tiny air sacs in the lungs may collapse leading to breathing difficulty and need for surfactant and ventilatory support. Blood vessels that are not yet fully developed may bleed into fluid-filled areas of the brain. Babies born too early may face delay in the milestones later. They may also have a lingering vision, hearing, cardiac and respiratory problems as children and adults. With little fat, the skin is thin and more transparent. Incubators help babies who are born without a protective fat layer stay warm. With the improvement in knowledge, skills, and technology, the intact survival of preterms has improved immensely.

The most advances in neonatal care have occurred during the last two decades. The latest services in advanced neonatal care are offered at Asian Hospital include:

  • High Frequency and Conventional mechanical ventilators
  • Surfactant delivery
  • Bedside Echocardiography
  • Parentral nutrition
  • Phototherapy and exchange transfusion
  • Neurosonography
  • Eye examination
  • Developmentally supportive care
  • Universal hearing screening
  • Neonatal transport services

By providing these services, we hope to bring a change in the lives of countless babies and happiness to the parents, and as baby goes home fully recovered, In some ways, the work of a NEONATAL TEAM will always seem like an exercise in disproportion—an army of people and a mountain of infrastructure caring for a pound of life.
