Our Paediatrics Intensive Care Unit Locations:

  • Jinnah Super Medicsi: 3rd Floor
  • Medicsi Bahria: 3rd Floor 

  • If your baby is more than 1 month old and requires further assessment or hospital admission, he/she will be treated in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).

    PICU is an in-patient unit that can manage a range of illnesses; varying from simple conditions e.g. diarrhoea to more complicated diagnoses e.g. respiratory compromise requiring ventilation. PICU is equipped with all essential machinery and apparatus to deal with patients in various medical situations.

    Our PICU is overseen by the Paediatric team in collaboration with other specialities, for example, Anaesthesia, Pulmonology, Cardiology, and Surgery, and is staffed 24/7 with nurses and doctors on-call under the supervision of the on-call Consultants.

    On Admission to PICU:

    The nurses in the PICU will take the vitals of the child and enquire about their brief history of the illness from parents or whoever accompanies the child. Most of the treatment will be managed by the on-call duty doctors; however, the consultant can be contacted if needed by the on-call team. 

    If admitted, every child will be seen by a Consultant either in ward rounds (morning and evening) or earlier if clinically indicated. 

    If any blood tests are taken for investigation and you are sent home, they will be reviewed by the medical team. You will be contacted in case of abnormal results or if any further management is required. If for any reason this is not communicated, you can collect your test results on the phone or in person.

    On Discharge:

    Upon discharge, you will be given discharge paperwork which will outline the course of the child’s hospital stay, any treatment done, and advice for home. These are important documents and should always be kept safe at home and brought back to the hospital in case of further assessment/admissions. You may also be given an appointment for the consultant’s clinic if required. This is to review the condition of the child and see if any changes need to be made.
