NICU: Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
NICU stands for Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and is an area of the hospital that specializes solely in the treatment of newborns.
Neonatal = Newborn The NICU combines advanced technology with trained health care professionals to provide specialized care for the tiniest patients. Most babies admitted to the NICU are:
- Premature (born before 37 weeks of pregnancy).
- Have low birth weight (less than 5.5 pounds).
- Have a medical condition that requires special care.
Babies with medical conditions such as heart problems, infections or birth defects also are cared for in the NICU.
NICUs may also have intermediate or continuing care areas for babies who are not as sick but do need specialized nursing care.
PICU: Pediatric Intensive Care Unit
Pediatric = Children
The PICU is the section of the hospital that provides sick children with the highest level of medical care. What makes the PICU different from other parts of the hospital is that this area allows intensive nursing care and continuous monitoring of things like heart rate, breathing and blood pressure.
Any child who is seriously ill, needs intensive care and whose medical needs can’t be met on the hospital’s main medical floors goes to the PICU, such as :
- Severe breathing problems from asthma.
- Serious infections.
- Certain heart conditions.
- Some complications of diabetes.
Some kids may have been stable enough to initially be cared for on the medical center’s medical-surgical floors, but may be transferred to the PICU if they become more acutely ill.
Following major surgery, many children are cared for in the PICU for several days.
