Neonatology is a super-speciality of Paediatrics that involves the medical care of newborn infants who are ill or are born prematurely and in such cases are taken care off within our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Babies housed in the NICU are taken care of by our Neonatologist, who is well experienced in handling the most complex and high risk situation facing new born babies including birth defects and specialized care for important organs like the baby’s heart, lungs, stomach and development of their metabolism so that they are well developed enough to function if born prematurely.
The Neonatology Department in Mar Sleeva Medicity Palai are led by highly qualified and experienced Neonatologists who are compassionate in taking care of premature neonates as early as 28 weeks and those born with extreme low-birth-weight as low as 750 grams. Our Hospital has 11 bedded ultra-modern NICUs with great hygiene and special provisions in caring for both in-born & out-born babies. All new-born babies are screened for hearing using AOE testing to diagnose any potential hearing problems.
Our Neonatologists work in close collaboration with our Paediatric specialists, Paediatric critical care specialists and Paediatric surgeons to ensure optimal care is provided in a family-centered environment. They take special interest in the field of high risk newborns, postoperative care of neonates, newborn resuscitation, ventilation modalities of neonates and advanced life ¬supporting procedures.
