‘Helping babies survive’ initiative: Indiana NICU has a robust and efficient neonatal transport team. Recently, an obstetrician from a hospital in Mangalore requested us to receive an extreme pretmature neonate/ 29 weeks gestation/ maternal anhydramnios posted for emergency LSCS at late hours in the night. Our team arrived at the location with full fledged team of neonatologists, para medics with necessary equipments including portable ventilator within 20 minutes. The tiny newborn was successfully resuscitated in their operation theatre, connected to portable ventilator & shifted to Indiana NICU by ambulance. Baby is now stable & is doing well. We are one of the very few hospitals in Mangalore offering full fledged neonatal transport support. The team of dedicated doctors, trained nurses along with high end equipments for provide complete package as a one stop solution for all neonatal & pediatric emergencies.
