For babies affected by high-risk pregnancy conditions or complications, our specialists offer all pre- and postnatal diagnostic tests and treatments, as well as consultations from surgical and pediatric subspecialists. We use state-of-the-art technology such as extracorporeal life support (ECMO) and nitric oxide to help improve outcomes for critically ill newborns.

  • With ECMO, better outcomes are expected for babies in acute respiratory failure.
  • With nitric oxide treatment, there is a decreased risk for mortality for premature babies with respiratory distress syndrome.
At University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital, we're committed to providing heart care that aligns with the latest research-based treatment guidelines. We're proud to be recognized by the American Heart Association® for our achievement of a Resuscitation Silver Award for Neonate in the Get With The Guidelines® quality program.
