Children requiring admission to hospital are often treated in general paediatric wards. However when their condition becomes more serious, they require closer monitoring and treatment. Such children are admitted to paediatric HDU (High dependency Unit). It is considered a step up from a normal ward. Any further escalation in treatment, such children will need intensive care support (PICU), which is a step up from HDU. Usually a nurse cares for upto 2 children in HDU. The care given in HDU can minimise the possibility of requiring an admission to PICU.
