Pediatric Intensive Care Unit

From the end of the 28-day newborn period to the age of 18, children's body structure, functioning and diseases and treatments vary greatly from adults. For this reason, special units with different equipment are needed in cases that require monitoring and treatment in the intensive care unit. The pediatric intensive care units developed for this purpose are equipped with equipment for the treatment and control of critically ill children. A team of physicians, nurses and assistant health personnel who are specialized in their fields work in the Pediatric Intensive Care Units.

The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of our hospital has 10 beds. All beds have been registered as level 3 intensive care beds by the Ministry of Health.
