Kidney disease or chronic kidney disease means the kidney is damaged and can't filter blood the way it should. Patients who have diabetes or high blood pressure are at a greater risk of having kidney diseases. Longstanding kidney disease may also lead to kidney failure.
Dr. Deblina Dasgupta Consultant Nephrology Institute Of Child Health (ICH) explained in detail about the early warning signs & symptoms of kidney diseases.
Institute of Child Health

The Pediatric Nephrology Division of the Institute of Child Health, Kolkata has undertaken a month-long initiative called ‘Prayas’ on the occasion of the World Kidney Day this year with the aim of spreading awareness about kidney health in children. It kicked off with a renal health screening programe for children of Future I lope School, Kolkata. A team of medical professionals visited the Future Hope School, Kolkata and conducted simple clinical evaluation including measurement of BP and urine analysis to detect earliest signs of kidney problems. Similar screening programe was also conducted for street children residing in Kolkata. Children found to be having abnormalities during this screening procedure will be followed up at ICH Nephrology OPD where basic evaluations and investigations like routine blood and urine tests will be done free of cost. Awareness programes were organised for parents caring for children with kidney diseases and Nursing Officers of ICH Kolkata. An online quiz competition was conducted to create interest about childhood kidney disorders amongst doctors pursuing post graduate course in pediatrics in various medical colleges across West Bengal.

The month-long initiative will culminate in a walk across a small stretch of Kolkata from Don Bosco School till Institute of Child Health on 10th March 2022 consisting of doctors, parents and eminent personalities with colourful banners, slogans and balloons to raise awareness about the importance of kidney health. “At the end of the walk, we will be felicitating some of our tighter children who have been battling kidney diseases for a long time with unwavering zeal. The final day will also see at spreading important messages about kidney health in a popular radio channel all through out the day.

Tragic death of a 7 year old girl for wrong treatment process and overdose of medication. I

A Patient named Priyasmita Biswas was admitted institute of Child health on 10.11.20 and she died on 7.01.21 at 12 pm she is critical condition although at that time there was no senior doctor was available in the PICU unit. Because the institute basically run by some incapable and inexperienced. Because they are working here as a trainee, they only thinking about their future career. They have inadequate knowledge and not capable of handling such critical patient. They are showing that a patient who is slowly improving day by day, but suddenly she fall into a critical state. Why and how the normally stable patient suddenly gone into critical state. But if you asked , they have no justified explanation and proper information. How is that possible ? We are try to think to get some answers, but we can't. I want to inform a sample of their treatment process. Infections are normal on this type of patients. But short of knowledge and experience they have. So all doctors are frightened and for that they inject 4 to 5 seperate antibiotics to a 7 year old girl and the result is obvious. All these antibiotics using one by one in a single day for that reason these medicines damage the heat, lungs, liver and at last kidney stop working.

So. Mr. Giri you are dreamer . But unfortunately we see a end of a 7 year old dreaming girl under your supervision in the I.C.H . So what about your next dream????

This otherwise healthy looking baby had a rare condition where the food pipe was not well formed and it was connected to his airways- a condition known as Esophageal atresia with tracheo-esophageal fistula. With this condition, milk could not go down into his stomach. It would rather go into his lungs, which could be fatal. It was well picked up the pediatrician who sent to our NICU. The surgical team did an excellent job and repaired the defect. But the following period was tumultous with the baby developing an air leak in his chest, then a lung infection, and then getting him off oxygen and fully fed was difficult. However, the NICU team together with the surgical team worked day and night with one goal- to send this baby home..and Finally, after a month, this baby is going home to his doting parents.

12th October is globally recognized as .Conventional thinking teaches us to consider Arthritis an adult onset disease predominantly affecting the elderly population. But unfortunately the disease also affects children, even infants.
Arthritis is a heterogeneous disease with joint pain and or swelling as the presenting symptom. The most important cause of arthritis in children is juvenile idiopathic arthritis, however other connective tissue diseases like SLE can also present with arthritis.Since awareness of childhood arthritis is less, these unfortunate children often present late with complications and deformities. Our modest effort to raise awareness regarding this chronic debilitating disease. Thanks to The Times of India for contributing to the effort

To cater to this huge influx of patients we needed a modern X-Ray Machine to replace the old one donated by the Govt. of Japan 20years ago. As the machine is significantly old the photo quality of the x-ray was not good enough for proper diagnosis of patients. The new Siemens MULTIX IMPACT AND MULTIX IMPACT C with Digital Radiography System uses X-Ray sensitive plates to directly capture data during patients’ examination and immediately transfers it to the computer system without the use of any intermediate cassette. To keep pace with the State of art technology required in the field of paediatric medicine, we are opening a modern X-Ray Unit sponsored by West Bengal State Electricity Transmission Company LTD.

Breastmilk is the ideal food for infants. It is safe, clean and contains antibodies which help protect against many common childhood illnesses. Breastmilk provides all the energy and nutrients that the infant needs for the first months of life, and it continues to provide up to half or more of a child’s nutritional needs during the second half of the first year, and up to one third during the second year of life. Infants should be breastfed on demand – that is as often as the child wants, day and night. Inappropriate marketing of breast-milk substitutes continues to undermine efforts to improve breastfeeding rates and duration worldwide.

Read what Dr.Aniruddha Ghosh points out using antibiotics when they are not the right medicine will not help and may even cause more harm than good. Why? Because antibiotics are medicines used to treat infections—and they target bacteria—not viruses.
Before prescribing an antibiotic, your child's doctor will find out if it is the right medicine to treat your child's infection.

Throughout paediatric hospitals all over the world, art has proven to be an invaluable aid for staff in either distracting children, or positively engaging children receiving sometimes painful and frightening treatments by supporting the individual needs of each patient. Through consultation with medical staff and patients Save the Children India have commissioned artists and designers that showcase dynamic design whilst meeting the patient’s needs in the Mrinalini Cancer Research Center - Institute Of Child Health Putting art on the walls of hospitals has been proven to improve the wellbeing of patients and staff members. Art creates stimulation and vibrancy to what can otherwise be sterile walls. It soothes and distracts in intense situations, such as entering into a procedure or chemotherapy. And it's especially effective when the patient is a child.

Ever wonder what nurses do on their job?
They save lives. They are the ones who notice trouble on the horizon. They trigger the alarm that leads to intervention to often save your life. They comfort you, reassure you, sometimes hold your hand, tell you everything will be all right. Out of all the things they do in this complicated medical world, perhaps that's their most precious role.
Bound by endless paperwork, short on hands, sleep, and energy… nurses are never short on caring.
Respect and appreciate is the least you can do for the “Nurses: A Voice to Lead – Invest in Nursing and respect rights to secure global health”


Hands that turn caring into action... Touch that turns compassion into comfort... Smiles that turn love into healing...

The backbone of a hospital....The real heros of a great survival....The eternal caregivers....Take a bow my dear sisters and brothers......
Wish my all nurse sisters and brothers a happy nurses day☺️☺️☺️

Thank you Save the Children India for supporting in this massive endeavour of reaching high quality healthcare with compassion to the underserved communities of Eastern India.

The pandemic has been uniquely harsh for children and more so for those with disabilities and chronic health conditions. A large number of them have struggled to access community health services and many have also endured psychological ordeal in the last two years.

Save the Children supported the Institute of Child Health in Kolkata - the first-of-its-kind paediatrics institute in India - by helping set up a Child-Friendly Space in the Haematology Ward. This space will serve as a safe area, a relaxation haven of sorts for children where they can learn, play and unwind when they are in the hospital. A small initiative to put a big smile on children’s faces.
