CENTRE OF INFORMATION

In the current scenario Neonatology is one of the most advanced medical specialities in modern medicine. Because of this, preterm babies that are born as little as 24 weeks of gestation (minimal viable period) have significantly increased chance of survival.

Babies who are born preterm may not have fully developed body system, which can make survival difficult due to the fact that lungs may not be able to breath; heart may not be pumping blood efficiently etc. Modern NICUs are equipped with technologies that allows doctors to compensate for the under developed body systems.

Lourdes Hospital, Kochi is equipped with state of the art Level 4 Neonatal Intensive care unit (NICU) which is the best in the region.
