Neonatology

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 antibiodres, even if they inside on HHFNC/CPAP and 85% it is amprecillin and gentanneins. Only 10% of the babies, who have  shamin less response to primary level  antibiodres 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 hyperbilirubinaensa in neonates. We use air-oxygen blenders to provide minimal oxygen while rexuseilating the baby both in labour room & gynec OT.

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