Neonatal Care Procedures

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU): Our state-of-the-art NICU is equipped with advanced technology and staffed with experienced neonatologists, nurses, and respiratory therapists. This specialized unit ensures round-the-clock care for critically ill newborns, offering a safe and nurturing environment for their recovery.

Neonatal Ventilation: Mechanical ventilation is sometimes necessary to support the breathing of premature or critically ill infants. Our neonatal team employs gentle and precise ventilation techniques, minimizing potential complications and promoting lung development.

Neonatal Surfactant Administration: For babies with RDS, administering surfactant directly into the lungs can improve their breathing ability. Our neonatologists are skilled in this procedure, enhancing lung function and reducing the need for prolonged mechanical ventilation.

Neonatal Surgery: Some newborns require surgical interventions to correct congenital defects or address other medical conditions. Our skilled neonatal surgeons perform these procedures with utmost care and precision, ensuring the best possible outcomes for these tiny patients.

Neonatal Nutrition Support

Proper nutrition plays a pivotal role in the healthy development of newborns. Our neonatal dietitians and nurses work closely with parents to provide specialized feeding plans, including breast milk, fortified formulas, or parenteral nutrition when needed, to promote growth and recovery.

Recovery and Beyond

Recovery in neonatology is a journey that extends beyond the neonatal period. Gleneagles Hospitals is dedicated to providing comprehensive care that encompasses medical treatments and emotional and developmental support for both the newborn and their family.

We understand that having a premature or critically ill newborn can be a challenging experience for parents. Our neonatal care team offers counselling and guidance, ensuring that families are well-prepared to care for their baby's unique needs both within the hospital and upon discharge.

As part of our commitment to neonatal care, we prioritize preventive measures such as vaccinations and developmental assessments to safeguard our youngest patients' long-term health and well-being. We aim to support these infants in reaching their full potential and growing into healthy and happy children.
