Critical care today typically involves high technology support including continuous dialysis; ventilator care including the availability of a high frequency ventilator; administration of nitric oxide; and support for kidney transplants. Continuous, state-of-the-art monitoring is standard practice.At Stony Brook Children's, pediatric intensivists support both the inpatient and outpatient facilities when sedation is required for a child undergoing painful procedures, such as bone marrow aspiration and biopsy, spinal taps, liver or kidney biopsies, and bronchoscopies.
