Pediatric Intensive Care Unit– to save the lives of children –
With advances in pediatric intensive care, we are saving small children’s lives every day that could not have been saved before. Multiple factors played an important role in this progress: In addition to advances in medical technology, regionalization of medical care, better interdisciplinary teamwork, improved quality and standardization of medical care, and promotion of family integrated care, to name a few. Improving the quality of life of children and families with a partnership with the community is our important goal for the next 10 years. This is a paradigm shift from our previous focus on survival outcomes.
