The pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) provides high-level care to critically ill pediatric patients. The unit has advanced life-saving devices and several monitoring devices that monitor vital parameters, such as heart rate, oxygen levels, and blood pressure. It enhances the speed of recovery, lowers the risk of permanent debility, and improves survival chances.
