Overview & Features

The Infant Jesus Neonatal unit, having 14 beds include one incubator and two beds in the septic room. The unit is maintained well in A/C  and  positive pressure from inside to avoid infection. Strict axptive  precautions are maintained. Only 35% of our NICU admission receive antibiotics, even if they inside on HHFNC/CPAP and 85% it is amprecillin and gentamycin. Only 10% of the babies, who have shown less response to primary level  antibiotics receive prperacillin/meropenum according to drug sensitivity or lab parameters. We have two ventilation one dragger babylog which is having volume guarantee and one SLE 5000 which can provide high frequency oscillatory ventilation.90% of our babies have shown very good response to HHFNC non-invasive respiratory support and we insure babies directly to AirVO HHFNC system. We have high intensity LED phototherapy system to treat hyperbilirubinaemia in neonates. We use air-oxygen blenders to provide minimal oxygen while resuscitating the baby both in labour room & gynec OT.

We are well supported by an ROP evaluation team from Giridhar eye institute, by paid cardiology, paid surgeon and audiometry team who are in –house.
