Neonatology is the specialised care of the sick and the new born including premature and tiny babies. The advent of newer therapeutic modalities, artificial life-support techniques and infection control mechanism has tremendously decreased mortality in newborn. SGL Hospital has one of the most advanced neonatal units, ushers in a new era in neonatal medicine. The Neonatal ICU is equipped with all the latest facilities for the newborn.
Mobile ventilation, a comprehensive network available has improved survival. These advances, backed by conventional neonate management technology (incubators, computerized monitoring including blood pressure, oxygen levels in the blood, blood gas analysis etc.) would be of no use unless a skilled, dedicated professional team utilizes them. The ICU team is highly qualified with experience abroad and is capable of dealing with complicated surgical cases.
It is important with every baby to be managed professionally in the first month of life and specially the first hour. Improved investigation back ups even before birth (foetal echo and ultrasound of the head) well-baby clinics and parent support networks have come a long way in changing the face of neonatology medicine.
