The Unit staff comprises pediatric intensivists, ICU nurses, ventilation technicians, physical therapists, pharmacists and psychosocial support professionals.

Medical Services

  • Resuscitation – The team includes a pediatric intensivist, anesthetist and nurse who remain on 24-hour alert daily to perform resuscitation in the hospital

  • Diagnostic and therapeutic bronchoscopies – an invasive procedure whereby a fiberoptic bronchoscope is inserted into the airway passages via the child’s mouth or nose. The scope allows the physician to view the interior canals and perform therapy/repair such as the removal of foreign objects. The service is also provided to hospitalized children or outpatients in the Day Care Hospitalization Department

  • Sedation service – Known as a Unit without Pain, the medical team administers sedation to patients in Schneider Children’s who need to undergo uncomfortable or painful diagnostic or treatment procedures
