Room and Board Pediatric Intensive Care Unit
A pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) is an area within a hospital specializing in the care of critically ill infants and children. The PICU is staffed by doctors, nurses, and respiratory therapists who are specially trained and experienced in pediatric intensive care. The ratio of professionals to patients is higher than in other areas of the hospital, reflecting the severity of the child's condition and the risk of life-threatening complications. Complex technology and equipment is often in use, particularly mechanical ventilators and patient monitoring systems. Pictured here is little Juliana who was eager to get back to her regular schedule of playing and coloring pictures after several days in the intensive care unit.
