Pediatric kidney transplantation part 32

Children

 

Moving out of the ICU

As your child recovers from the surgery, the medical team will reduce their medications and begin to remove the invasive lines and monitors. The breathing machine will do less work as your child is woken up from sedation. When your child is finally disconnected from the breathing machine, they will be able to speak and, in time, have a drink.

Depending on their condition, a child can stay in the ICU for a few days or even a few weeks. When your child no longer needs intensive care, they will be moved to a regular hospital room.

Although most of the monitoring equipment will have been removed, your child may still have a bladder catheter and intravenous infusions. Over the following days, these will be gradually removed as your child’s condition improves.
