"He was once a king, named Picus, and a pretty good sort of a king, too, only rather too proud of his purple robe, and his crown, and the golden chain about his neck; so he was forced to take the shape of a gaudy-feathered bird.
Hardly were the words spoken, and before the bird had time to utter another "pe--weep," King Picus leaped down from the bough of a tree, as majestic a sovereign as any in the world, dressed in a long purple robe and gorgeous yellow stockings, with a splendidly wrought collar about his neck, and a golden crown upon his head.
Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Nityanand Rai has already sanctioned the fund to build a PICU at Sadar Hospital in his parliamentary constituency -- Ujiarpur.
High-income countries (HICs) have more critical care beds, paediatric intensivists and paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) admissions than low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), [1] where the majority of deaths in children under 5 years of age occur.
The collected patient data included the following: date of birth, gender, date of admission, date of discharge, date of procedures, and length of stay in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).
The distribution and structure of the PICUs, the main causes of admission, the costs incurred and the way in which intensive care is provided in the country are poorly understood (1).

Various scoring systems have been developed to allow for assessment of the quality of care in PICUs, e.g.
Most cases transferred to PICUs received no further care beyond continuous albuterol.
