Emergency cases such as burn injuries, high-grade fever, acute respiratory infection, etc. have also been observed that require immediate attention and access to the right medical equipment.

The modular ICU will play a key role in hastening the emergency care that a child requires in such situations and plays a supportive function to our existing PICU.”
