Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)
Severely ill children aged up to 16 years old, including challenging surgical trauma and operation patients, severe infection and spasm patients, are treated in the paediatric intensive care unit. We are the only paediatric intensive care ward in the Hospital District of Southwest Finland. There is also a resuscitation group in our ward, which performs all resuscitations in the U-hospital. An important part of our work is to take the whole family into account and to support the family members.
