The Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine at MUSC Children’s Hospital is responsible for the care of critically ill children and adolescents from the newborn period through age 17. The interdisciplinary pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) at MUSC is an 11-bed medical-surgical unit staffed by five board certified/eligible pediatric intensivists, as well as specially trained nurses, respiratory therapists, PharmD’s, child life specialists and nutritionists.
Additionally, the pediatric intensivists and three critical care nurses comprise the Pediatric Sedation Team which provides moderate and deep sedation services to over 600 children a year for procedures throughout the hospital.
We are currently working to help organize a pediatric critical care consortium, including PICUs across the state, for the purposes of improving education, patient safety, health outcomes, and critical care research in the state of South Carolina.
