Respiratory failure occurs when not enough oxygen passes from a child's lungs to their blood. Our clinicians are national experts in treating this condition, and we use invasive and noninvasive mechanical ventilation to optimize the care of these children.
We have one of the largest volume pediatric cardiac programs in the state of New York and the largest program on Long Island. We perform approximately 300 cardiac and thoracic procedures each year.
As one of the only facilities in the area to offer continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT), we treat children with a variety of diseases causing life-threatening kidney failure, including sepsis, bone marrow transplantation and extracorporeal life support.
Our PICU is a nationally recognized program that provides the highest level of extracorporeal life support, a form of heart and/or lung bypass that helps save lives. We consistently exceed national benchmark outcomes, so you know your child is in the best hands.
High frequency oscillatory ventilation is a unique form of ventilatory support sometimes needed to treat critically ill children. Our team members are experts, and our PICU receives many children from across the region requiring this level of support.
Children with sepsis or septic shock require a high level of care in the PICU. Our multidisciplinary team of pediatric critical care clinicians has extensive experience in treating children of all ages, from infancy to adulthood, with this condition.
