Intensive Care (PICU)

Pediatric Intensivists are pediatricians who undergo subspecialty training in critical care medicine. This fellowship is typically three years in duration and encompasses training that allows practitioners to be experts in a wide range of treatments. Some of those treatments include mechanical ventilation, treatment of shock, all forms of respiratory failure and focused post-operative care.

Conditions Treated

  • Respiratory failure of all etiologies (the cause of a disease or condition)

  • Shock

  • Severe dehydration

  • Organ system failure

  • Severe trauma

  • Neurologic diseases
