Neonatal Intensive Care Unit


Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

A Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a specialized unit for babies who are ill or are born prematurely. Neo in Neonatal stands for “new” and natal means “origin” or “birth”. Admission into this unit may be overwhelming for parents, but the due care is necessary for the babies so they can be perfectly fine.

What is a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit?

Giving birth to a premature or sick baby is unexpected for parents. A Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is used for newborn babies who require intensive medical care. The tiniest patients are in the care of trained healthcare professionals and advanced technology. Babies who are in need of specialized nursing care are also taken care in NICUs. In this specialized area, the baby is protected from infection, cold, temperature, excess handling and noise. Specialized incubators are installed to keep the temperature warm and protect baby from various kinds of germs. NICUs have facilities for providing nutrition, either through NG tube or intravenous catheter.

Why do babies need to be admitted to this unit?

Some babies who have a birth weight < 5.5 pounds, are preterm (born earlier than 37 weeks of pregnancy) or have conditions which require special care such as heart problems, birth defects or infections are admitted to NICUs. Triplets and twins are also often admitted to NICUs. NICUs with experienced team of professionals such as neonatologist, paediatric resident, neonatal nurse practitioner, speech, occupational, and physical therapist, respiratory therapist, lactation consultants, dieticians, pharmacists, and hospital chaplain, take care of the babies to their best potential. All the team members make a plan according to the risk of the newborn baby so that intensive care is given.
