What is NICU?

Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is a type of medical facility that provides comprehensive care for premature and very low birth weight infants.

A neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is a special type of hospital that provides comprehensive care for premature and very low birth weight infants. Premature babies are babies who are born before 37 weeks of pregnancy, and very low birth weight babies are babies who weigh less than 2,500 grams (5.5 pounds).

In a neonatal intensive care unit, doctors and nurses work together to provide the best possible care for these babies. They will often have to stay in the NICU for several weeks or longer.

The main goals of a neonatal intensive care unit are to protect the baby from infection, and to help the baby grow and develop normally. Doctors and nurses in a neonatal intensive care unit will often perform surgery on premature babies, or give them medications to help them grow and develop properly.
