Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

What is NICU?

NICU stands for newborn intensive care unit. This is a place in a hospital that provides around-the-clock care to sick or premature babies. It has doctors and paramedical staff who have special training and equipment to give your baby the best possible care.

What is the difference between ICU and NICU?

ICU stands for Intensive Care Unit and is designed to cater to critically ill adults. NICU, on the other hand, is designed to cater to newborn babies who need critical treatment.

What is the difference between PICU and NICU?

PICU stands for Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. In the PICU infants and children, up to 17 years old are treated by doctors. In a NICU, only newborns are provided critical care.

What is Level III NICU?

A level III NICU cares for very small babies, infants born as early as 27 to 30 weeks or very sick newborns. Level 3 NICUs have a wide variety of staff on-site, including neonatologists, neonatal nurses, and respiratory therapists who are available 24 hours a day.

Which babies need Level III NICUs?

Infants born at less than 32 weeks gestational age and weighing less than 1500 grams as well as critically ill newborns of any gestational age and birth weight, should be taken care of in a level III NICU.

What are some common health conditions babies have in the NICU?

Some common conditions treated at NICU are Anaemia, Breathing problems, Apnea, Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN), Pneumonia, Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), Bradycardia, Coarctation of the aorta, Heart valve abnormalities, Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA), Septal defects, Tetralogy of Fallot, Transposition of the great arteries, Retinopathy of Prematurity, Sepsis, Macrosomia, Jaundice, Gastroschisis, Intrauterine Growth Restriction (IUGR) and so on.

What tests are done in the NICU?

Some common tests done in the NICU are blood tests, CT scans, echocardiograms, ECG, hearing tests, MRI, ROP exams, ultrasound, X-rays, urine tests and so on.

How can I breastfeed my baby in the NICU?

It depends on the baby’s medical condition and how well they can suck and swallow. If your baby can directly breastfeed, that is the best option. If your baby cannot breastfeed directly, you can feed her breast milk that you pump from your breasts using a bottle. Some babies may need a feeding tube and you can feed your pumped breast milk using that tube. 

For babies who are very small or sick, the baby can only receive nutrients through an intravenous line (IV).

What is newborn jaundice?

Newborn or neonatal jaundice is very common and causes yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes. Other symptoms of newborn jaundice can include dark, yellow urine and pale stools. The symptoms of newborn jaundice usually develop 2 days after the birth and tend to get better without treatment by the time the baby is about 2 weeks old.

It is caused by the build-up of bilirubin in the blood. Jaundice is common in newborn babies because babies have a high number of red blood cells in their blood, which are broken down and replaced frequently. Also, a newborn baby's liver is not fully developed, so it's less effective at removing the bilirubin from the blood.

My baby’s skin is peeling off. Is that ok?

When your baby is in the womb, it is covered in a baby moisturiser called vernix. After delivery, this layer slowly wears off and it appears that the baby’s skin is “peeling” or “moulting”. This shedding of old skin is completely normal and there is no need to apply any lotions or creams.
