Virtual Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (vPICU)
The Laura P. and Leland K. Whittier Virtual Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (VPICU) connects emergency rooms, community hospitals and intensive care units worldwide in a virtual network – extending telemedicine consultations to even the most remote areas.
By creating a common information space, we are able to benefit critically ill children around the globe. This multifaceted project is funded in large part by the Laura P. and Leland K. Whittier Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
The vPICU is partnering with other organizations to achieve its vision through the creation of extended databases, education and the extension of access to services via telemedicine networks.
Attendings and Fellows can participate in distance learning through activities posted on the VPICU website and through teleconferencing.
