For the child and family, the blankets help to normalize the experience of being in an often overwhelmingly technologically complex unit, providing a pop of color in a soft, soothing material.

The blankets remind patients and families that others are thinking about them, and/or know what it is like to be in a PICU, which can be frightening at times.
