The Indian Academy of Pediatrics recommends a pediatric prenatal visit before delivery to help newborn baby reaches her healthiest potential, starting from Day 1.
First check up for Various common but not evident diseases, if present, are diagnosed. Spo2 (Blood oxygen saturation ) should be more than 95% at 24 hrs of life to rule out most of cardiac birth defects.
At birth inn vitamin has to be given to prevent bleeding tendency in newly born babies. other than this within 24 hrs of birth preferably BCG, Hep B and polio drops should be given.

Through NB Screen Program, anomalies which will hamper babies normal growth and life in the future, can be identified at an early stage, giving the baby enough time for treatment and healthy growth.
Our goal is to improve newborn babies outcomes during the her golden hour, transport flow and NICU stay, while supporting the baby’s parents with training material and educational resources.
Thermoregulation in the NICU : Our phoenix incubator and warmers help create an individualised microclimate in the NICU where thermoregulation and the right light and sound levels work together to care for the newborn in a safe and stable, nurturing way.
Newborn jaundice treatment : 8 out of every 10 babies show signs of jaundice. Jaundice is caused by high levels of Bilirubin. High levels of Bilirubin are toxic to brain cells, and severe jaundice poses the risk of bilirubin passing into the brain and causing damage. It’s important to know when and how to screen for it and to use gentle and effective phototherapy treatment when needed. We have non invasive testing and treatment methods. With the right tools, neonatal jaundice can be easily managed. The Dräger Jaundice Meter JM-105 gives you consistent quality screening delivered.
Neonatal ventilation and lung protection : Neonatal ventilation is an important part of the care delivered in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). But ventilation of preemies and neonates is a substantial challenge for even the most experienced caregiver: Respiratory insufficiency remains one of the major causes of neonatal mortality. Immature lungs and underdeveloped breathing require extremely gentle ventilation and advanced technology. The aim of any ventilation strategy is therefore to support the premature infant’s respiratory system without inducing damage to the lung or the brain. Our neonatal ventilation management protocol accompany neonates from the beginning to the end of respiratory challenges: It is our aim to prevent or minimize pulmonary injury, impairment and work of breathing, whilst optimizing comfort and allowing your little preemies to grow safely.
Lighting & Noise in the NICU :Cyclical light exposure: usually has a night time phase and a daytime phase of 12 hours each. Adjustable dimmed lighting: the light is turned down whenever the baby is asleep. Continuous dimmed lighting: the light is always dim
Developmental care in the NICU :It becomes crucially important to maintain developmental care NICU environment and reduce stress factors to the absolute minimum. External stimuli strongly influence the development of the brain and emotional maturation of premature babies. A developmental care concept should enable babies in the NICU to complete their interrupted intrauterine development with as little harm as possible by minimising external stress while promoting physiological stimuli.
Specifically, it includes the following aspects:
After discharge follow up fo these babies till they reaches to their peers is very important aspect of our service. we closely follow them by regularly visits so we can monitor weigh gain pattern, breast feeding difficulty if any, other growth and development process in baby. As you know, comprehensive follow-up of high risk infants will help in early detection and management of neurological, developmental and other morbidities.
Minimizing stress and making your premature patients comfortable during neonatal transport is key to healing. Our neonatal transport service is specifically designed to provide comfort to your baby, while offering the an elevated level of care. In those crucial moments our team transport neonates safely and with minimal stress and a full-featured, high-performance transport incubator. we have Neopuff as transport ventilator to support baby’s respiration during transport and oxygen supply with transport team of doctor and nurses
As you know, comprehensive follow-up of high risk infants will help in early detection and management of neurological, developmental and other morbidities.

Our Team for high risk speciality clinics :
As the parents of a premature baby, you will be faced with greater potential for complications than if your baby had been born full-term. Your baby will reside in the NICU if the doctor deems it necessary to monitor the health of your child. He or she will be sleeping most of the time, because all of the baby’s energy will be directed toward bringing the primary functions up to normal and ridding the body of harmful microorganisms.
The journey will be long and hard, but it will give your baby the best chances for clinical care and professional support by specialists.
In some cases, your baby may be sick and require around-the-clock care, and may possibly experience one or more of the following complications:
You can expect things to be harder than if your baby had been born full-term; however, you can also expect that in the NICU, everything is being done to ensure your baby’s growth. In the NICU, you’ll have the aid and care of a dedicated, highly trained staff, as well as the most technologically advanced equipment.
