THE INTENSIVE CARE UNIT

What to expect when you first see your child

You child will be attached to many tubes and monitors, which can be overwhelming when you first see them. Remember, though, that your child’s team will explain all the monitors, tubes, and IVs to you in detail.

Monitors

Your child may be on a ventilator (breathing machine) until they are ready to breath on their own. This may take a day or two, but it can sometimes take a bit longer for babies. In addition to the ventilator, several monitors in the room will be used to check your child’s heart rhythm, blood pressure, blood oxygen level and perhaps other signs, depending on your child’s specific situation
