The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Dell Children’s is the only critical care facility expressly for children in Central Texas. This 24-bed unit delivers highly-specialized care to children with a host of illnesses and injuries, many of them life threatening.
Experienced teams provide care for patients recovering from severe trauma and motor vehicle crashes, as well as postoperative patients, including those with congenital heart disease, acute abdomen, neurosurgical, urological and orthopedic conditions. Nonsurgical patients may include children with acute and chronic illnesses, multi-system failure and respiratory distress. These patients may require numerous interventions such as endotracheal intubation, invasive hemodynamic monitoring, in-depth and on-going assessment, medication and blood administration, respiratory care and enteral/parenteral nutrition.
Our teams are specially trained in the latest procedures of pediatric critical care medicine, delivering the most sophisticated medical and surgical care needed for our most critically ill or injured children.
