The Department of Paediatrics and Child Care at Apex Hospital offers comprehensive care to children and newborn babies. It is primarily concerned with the health and medical conditions of infants, children, and adolescents from birth up to the age of 18 years. Round-the-clock treatment facilities are available for all kinds of major illnesses and severe conditions from which the children suffer. Our Pediatric Intensive Unit is well equipped with all major facilities such as modern ventilators and monitors that are essential for critically sick children or those who are suffering from severe diseases like respiratory, renal, or other infections that can lead to a more life threatening situation.
The paediatric speciality is majorly concerned with 4 key areas associated with children's health which include General Paediatrics, Neonatology, Community Paediatrics, and Paediatric Cardiology. General paediatrics covers the treatment of all major diseases that affect children from birth to the age of 16 years. Pediatricians who take care of newborn babies or premature babies or those born with birth difficulties are neonatologists. Paediatric cardiologists diagnose and treat children who are suffering from any cardiac (heart) conditions. The department aims at reducing infant and child death rate, control of spreading of infectious disease, promoting a healthy lifestyle among children for a disease-free long life. Thus, any chronic condition can be avoided.
