Paediatric cardiac intensive care

Paediatric cardiac intensive care involves the nursing of newborns and children with heart disease who need intensive monitoring and care. The children usually have a congenital heart defect or a disease of the heart and circulatory system that requires surgery or intensive care.

Such children frequently need intensive nursing care and support before and after the heart procedure. Paediatric cardiac intensive care ensures that the children are nursed in suitable intensive care units by specially trained professionals.
