Pediatrics and Neonatology is the specialized care of the sick and the new born upto the age of 14 years 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. Sen Sok International University Hospital (SSIUH)’s pride one of the most advanced neonatal units in the world, ushers in a new era in neonatal medicine.
Mobile ventilation, a comprehensive network available only at Sen Sok International University Hospital (SSIUH) 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 essential for newborns to be handled cautiously in the first hour and the first month. With the advent of advanced therapeutic modalities, artificial life support techniques, and infection control mechanism, the mortality of newborns has tremendously decreased. More so, clinics and parent support networks have contributed in improving examinations before birth, such as fetal echo and ultrasound.
