If your child has an illness or injury that results in your child being in an unstable critical condition, a hospital-based paediatric specialist can be called on to provide the special care that your child needs.

Some conditions that may cause your child to be unstable and critical include the following:

• Severe asthma

• Deep diabetic ketoacidosis

• An overwhelming infection, such as severe pneumonia

• Serious injuries from accidents (such as cars, bicycles, scooters, skateboards, and rollerblades)

• A near drowning

All children become ill or injured at one time or another. Most of these problems can be cared for by your paediatrician.

Children who are critically ill require careful monitoring in a paediatric intensive care unit (PICU). Paediatric Specialists coordinate the care of these children which is provided by a team of doctors, nurses, and other health care specialists.

They use the special medicines or treatments that can only be offered in the PICU.
