SPECIAL CARE OF NEWBORN BABIES: NEONATOLOGY SPECIALIZES IN FIRST 28
DAYS OF HUMAN LIFE
Neonatology refers to the care of newborn infants due to premature birth, low birth weight, birth defects, heart trouble, lung problems, or other life-threatening conditions. Adiva Hospital, Green Park is home to a state of the art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Our NICU is equipped to care for the tiniest and most critically ill babies, offering the greatest range of neonatal services and support.
Few parents consider the possibility that their baby might need special medical care after birth. Even fewer think about which neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) might care for their baby.
One out of nine mothers do not carry her pregnancy to full term (37 or more weeks), and roughly 20% of babies born in a hospital require some sort of special care in the NICU. We hope that your pregnancy and delivery go smoothly, but if the unexpected should occur, here are some facts you must consider: NICU at Adiva Hospital, Green Park is a busy unit catering to the needs of high-risk newborn babies. Care of the NICU babies is in the hands of a senior qualified neonatologist, along with a team of paediatricians, experienced in the care of fragile, sick newborns. The NICU handles premature and small-for-date neonates with life support systems like servo Controlled incubators, open care units, pulse oximeters, ventilators, phototherapy, & transport incubators. Our incubators and ventilator support systems and treatment procedures are second to none in this region.
We routinely receive babies weighing less than 1000 grams at birth and have an excellent track
record in the intact survival.
