Pediatric Intensive Care Unit

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.

If you have a child in the PICU, but don't live nearby, The Ronald McDonald House is located a few blocks away from Saint Peter’s in New Brunswick. Our social work staff will assist with making arrangements for accommodations.
