Newborns and children form a substantial and valuable part of our population. With the concept of one or two child family, each baby born needs better and specialized care. Our institute of Child Health is dedicated solely to child and newborn care.
Founded in 2005, IHR’s Institute of Child Health (IHC) caters to the medical need of newborns, infants, children and young adults. We are presently running a 24 x 7 pediatric emergency unit. We have four qualified pediatric consultants, pediatric surgeons, neonatologists, dietitian, pediatric residents & fully trained nursing staff attending round the clock to the emergency and routine need of children. We have well equipped pediatric operation theatre with pediatric anesthesia ventilators.
All the latest support equipments like ventilators, C-PAP machines, sophisticated radiant warmers, incubators, cardiac monitors, NIBP, pulse oxymeters, infusion pump, electronic weighing machine and double surface phototherapy units of back-up of equipped laboratory, are available at the institute.
The unit has sent home the smallest baby born in north east India in 2008 which was born at 26 weeks weighing 700 gms only. Small preterm babies and critical babies are regularly referred here.
May God help us to serve all better.
