Pediatric critical care is a developing specially all over the world. This caters the need of Pediatric population beyond the age of one month. The babies below the one-month are cared for in the NICU, which is well established in our hospital and is one of the finest NICU's in this part of the country. The K..L.E.S PICU was established two years ago. The concept is taken from the PTCU of the hospital of University of Illinois Chicago U.S.A. Two of our faculty members Dr. V. D. Patil , Professor and Head of Department and Dr. Roopa. M. Bellad, Asso. Professor of Pediatric have under gone training of 10 weeks each in the PICU at University of Illinois, Chicago.

The 12 beaded PICU unit offers the most comprehensive level of care for patients with respiratory failure, circulatory failure / acute neurologic, deterioration as well as those who are at risk of developing these and other acute conditions. The PICU s needy patients. The PICU also has sufficient infusion pumps, pulse oximeters, oxygen analyzers, in house E.C.G machine and defibrillator. The PICU patients get the back up of all the investigations including ABG & also the support of Pediatric Surgeon.

 All the staff working in PICU have undergone PALS certificate course and are trained to tackle any emergencies. The patients also get the referral support from super specialties like Neurology, Nephrology, Urology, Cardiology and Cardio thoracic surgeons around the clock.
