Providing pediatric critical care medicine for PICU patients

Pediatrix®-affiliated pediatric critical care clinicians care for tens of thousands of infants, children and adolescents in the pediatric intensive care units (PICU) of the hospitals they serve. When a child requires specialized critical care, pediatric intensivists understand their unique needs and can administer the necessary tests, treatments and medications suitable for younger patients.

Our highly experienced, compassionate pediatric intensivists are trained to manage the complex chronic conditions of infants, children and adolescents. Some of the more common ailments they treat in the PICU include:

  • Severe respiratory illnesses such as asthma.
  • Diabetic ketoacidosis.
  • Trauma caused by accidents or abuse.
  • Acute renal failure.
  • Complications from cancer or blood disorders.
  • Acute viral and bacterial infections, such as pneumonia and meningitis.
  • Congenital cardiac disease.
