The staff of specialists in their field provide life support for newborn children in need of special care because of the health problems in this center with advanced technical equipment. A 24-hour work program is implemented in the neonatal intensive care unit because of the privacy of the services provided.
Importance of Neonatal Stage:
Starting life with healthy breathing is the first step in a healthy life. Unfortunately, however, every child has no luck. Children are born after risk for multiple reasons. They can not live with special health care. Especially the neonatal phase is of great importance in this aspect.
The stage that includes the first 28 days after the birth of the child is the newborn stage. The problems that arise at this stage play a key role in the death of children. The death of children in modern birth constitutes half the children who die in our country. For this reason, the risk of early childbearing should be monitored in centers that include the neonatal care unit.
We provide safe delivery for child health and maternal health because it is a health institution equipped with advanced and complete techniques as well as its neonatal intensive care unit.
ICU functions for neonates
The neonatal intensive care unit has the specificity of saving lives. Care of children with pediatric intensive care is essential for saving their lives. Children born early, children born with light weight, and those with genetic health problems are among the group of dangerous children and their health. The intensive care unit plays a key role in the lives of children who may die in normal conditions.
The state of premature birth is one in ten in the world, according to statistics. The normal gestational period is 40 weeks. A birth that occurs a week or two before this period is an early birth. 38 weeks must normally pass in a healthy pregnancy for the development of all the child’s organs in the mother’s womb.
Serious problems can usually arise in children born before the 37th week of pregnancy completion, that is, before the necessary duration is completed in the mother’s abdomen due to incomplete respiratory, gastrointestinal, neurological, and other organs. These children may need to be kept in the neonatal intensive care unit where live support is provided to them 24 hours a day under observation on the screen.
Care in incubators
Incubators are the main component of neonatal intensive care units. Newborn babies are cared for in these incubators. The incubator forms a place close to the mother’s uterus. Children are heated and protected from infections in incubators as in the mother’s womb. The life of children with incomplete development of their lungs is increased by fans, which are the latest technology products that help breathing to a child who can not breathe enough.
Children’s life functions are monitored 24 hours a day, such as the respiratory system, heartbeat, body temperature and the like.
A mother who gives birth to an unfinished child can visit him in the neonatal intensive care unit, and can often visit her in appropriate clothing and help her baby feed. Mothers can also enter the intensive care room with their own clothes. The support of the mother positively affects the development of the child throughout his stay in intensive care.
Our basic philosophy: “Patient Satisfaction”
24-hour surveillance, mobile x-rays and ultrasound imaging are available at the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at the Turkish Hospital. Consultations with other branches can also be consulted if necessary such as the Department of Neurosurgery, Cardiology and Blood Diseases , And pediatric surgery.
The hospital in Turkey has the identity of “child-friendly hospital”. The screening program for vulvar ketone and hypothyroidism is performed for all children born in a Turkish hospital that adopts the principles of approved work with its identity. Children diagnosed with the disease are treated.
These diseases cause mental retardation if not diagnosed in a timely manner. However, this risk is eliminated by testing.
The following services are provided in the neonatal intensive care unit of the Turkish Hospital:
Care for children in need of respiratory support
Care in incubators
Replace the blood
Treatment of jaundice (phototherapy)
Care for early-born children, children born at light weight and children born at very light weight.
Care for newborns and all children with health problems
