Neonatal ICU
 
Care of newborn babies has vastly improved in India over last two decades. The department of Neonatology takes pride in undergoing this transformation. Strength of the unit comes from the " State of the Art" Obstetrical and perinatal services rendered in the hospital, which attracts large number of high-risk deliveries.
   
Service Provided
 
Care of preterm and very low birth weight babies: The preterm babies have many problems including respiratory difficulty, feeding intolerance, infection and increased chances of bleeding. The unit has 10 servo control warmers and control oxygen delivery system. The survivals are improving over years.
Mechanical ventilation: The unit has mechanical ventilator to support babies with breathing difficulty. We have 3 state of the art ventilators with excellent results. The survival of babies on mechanical ventilation has improved markedly now.
Parentral nutrition: Because of poor swallowing capability and immature gastrointestinal functions, the small preterm and sick babies are not able to tolerate oral feeds well and requires intravenous nutrition in form of fats and proteins.

We encourage breast feeds at the earliest and mothers express their milk in the nursery and very premature babies are started on expressed breast milk at the earliest. Mothers are also involved in the care of the baby, they are encouraged to hold the baby next to their skin ( Kangaroo Mother Care) which helps in establishing lactation and also improves the bonding with the baby.
Surfactant delivery: Premature lungs are deficient in this chemical which results in breathing difficulty and they may require ventilatory support. Giving surfactant to these babies improve their lung function, helps them coming out of ventilator faster and ultimately helping in improving survival and reduce hospital stay in them. We have been using surfactant in these babies for a long time for very good results.
Echocardiography: Bed side echocardiography is very important tool in the diagnosis and management of heart problems in premature as well as term babies. We are having the portable Echo Machine Paediatric process equipments.
Neurosonography: Premature babies are prone to have intraventricular hemorrhage (brain hemorrhage) especially in first week of life. Sick ventilated babies also have a higher chances of having such problem. Bed side ultrasound is very important in picking up these hemorrhages for diagnostic value, to decide treatment modalites and to prognosticate. We have the facility of portable USG round the clock done by very senior consultants in the field.

Ultrasound in also used to diagnose many malformations related to other organ systems.
Bed side Xray facility: Xray machine is stationed in the nursery to get the Xrays of the babies without any untoward delay.
Paediatric surgery facilities: We have excellent facilities for neonatal surgeries with senior Paediatric Surgeons attached to the unit.
Staff nurses: We have trained neonatal staff nurses to take care of the neonates. We have a nurse: baby ratio of 1:2 for intensive care area and 1:4 nurse: baby ratio for babies not requiring intensive care.
   
Do's and Dont's of Newborn care
 
Baby should be given only breast milk for first six months of life.
Exclusive breast feeding means nothing except breast-feeds not even water, ghuttis, gripe water, tonics or any form of milk.
Babies need proper clothes, which covers them properly especially head, hands and feet. They should not be over clothed as well.
Babies pass watery stools after first 3-4 days of life especially after feeding which is normal for them.
A baby, who is feeding well, will be passing urine at least 8-10 times a day.
Babies don't need any Kajal, Surma, Talcum powder or daily bath. Bathing should be postponed for first few days after birth. A good rule to follow is delay bath till umbilical cord falls.
Vaccination is the most cost-effective way of health for children.
