Saint Peter's Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) provides the highest level of medical care available to children recovering from surgery or serious illness. We provide, in addition to routine pediatric intensive care services, conscious sedation services for invasive or painful procedures such as lumbar puncture, bone marrow aspiration, and fracture reduction. Innovative therapies for respiratory failure and asthma include high-frequency oscillatory ventilation, low-tidal-volume ventilation, nitric oxide and heliox. We play an active role in the management of children undergoing airway reconstructive surgery, chemotherapy, craniofacial surgery, neurosurgery, plasmapheresis and other procedures.
Local hospitals rely on our intensivists when a child becomes critically ill. Our physicians visit the facility and stabilize the child. Should the child need long-term, high-level medical care, our Pediatric Transport Team will bring him or her to Saint Peter's PICU. The Transport Team is directed by fellowship-trained pediatric intensivists who work in the PICU and is staffed by practicing pediatric critical care nurses and respiratory therapists. It uses pediatric ventilators, pediatric monitors and other equipment specific to the needs of critically ill children.
