This kind of intervention is incomplete without a proper Neonatology backup. This is one of the aspects of the hospital we are very proud of, presenting the state of the art, and sophisticated Level III Advanced Neonatal Intensive Care unit. Occupying about 6000sq.ft, this NICU has 70 beds.

The 24 hours functioning Neonatology and Paediatrics Department is a proud provision from Lifeline.

Those mesmerizing innocent smiles…


As we all know, newborn mortality comprises a major part of the infant deaths and so the initiation of appropriate care at birth helps to bring down the infant mortality rate, which is a reflector of the quality of health care.We, at Lifeline hospital have recognized this aspect and are involved in giving high quality care for the newborn babies.

Our Nursery is a 70 bedded nursery with facilities for advanced care. Since our hospital is an infertility centre, we do get to treat a lot of preterm extremely low birth weight babies(<1kg). Our unit has 10 Ventilators (including HFOV) and 6 CPAP machines for the management of small babies. We do have a dedicated staff and state of the art equipment related to newborn care. We have an Echocardiography machine in our nursery for evaluation of the Neonatology heart.We do inhouse USS of the brain (Neurosonogram) to rule out intraventricular bleeds and structural anomalies of the brain.We are using Invasive Blood Pressure monitoring(IBP) for very sick babies for optimization of care. Also, sick babies are put on central venous catheters(PICC, UV) for the easy administration of multiple medications and for the purpose of parenteral nutrition.Of course, the usual essentials of a nursery like multipara monitors,incubator, warmers, phototherapy machines are all there.

Even the cases where abortion was concluded as the only option by prior consultants, Lifeline has succeeded in gifting parents their child with the help of Intra Uterine Fetal surgery.

We have facilities for Exchange transfusion for management of severely jaundiced babies. Newborn babies with surgical problems like malrotation,tracheaoesophageal fistule etc are taken care of in our nursery following the needed surgery.We have a team of highly trained doctors who are actively involved in the care of these sick babies.We have an average bed occupancy rate of around 80% throughout the year as we get referred babies from nearby centres also.

We have treated babies as small as 500g and as low as 25 weeks.Our mortality statistics are comparable with the best. We do have a dedicated follow up of our pre terms following discharge.

We do in house assessment of hearing (BERA) and vision (ROP Screening) and do the necessary correction. We also have a Developmental therapist and Physiotherapist for the babies who have their needs. We do take pains to see that the baby is taken care of in the best possible way keeping the expense at a reasonable level. Our nursery is one of the leading nurseries in Kerala and we are hoping to continue to retain the quality of care and improve the prospects of a better life for these small babies.
