Pediatric Emergency & Critical Care
Emergency service in Maxcure Suyosha hospital for women and children caters to all neonatal and pediatric emergencies round the clock. We are well equipped in facilitating rapid initial stabilization of sick children.
The patients are immediately attended by highly trained and experienced staff using the necessary state of the art equipment and protocols. It is ensured that the most serious patients receive attention first. If necessary senior most staff from the PICU or NICU also can attend the critical patients instantly.
Once stabilised (including initiating artificial ventilation if required), the children being brought to ER are shifted to NICU, PICU or pediatric floors depending on the requirement.
The Emergency services deal with all medical scenarios, surgical emergencies, accidents, burns, and poisonings. Specialists from other disciplines like pediatric surgery, neurology, cardiology, ENT, Ophthalmology, pedodontics etc. are available on call if necessary.
In addition to the medical services we explain in detail about the condition of the patients and reasonable attempts are made to allay their fears and anxieties.
