Use of PRISM scores in triage of pediatric patients with diabetic ketoacidosis. (1/535)

Triage guidelines are needed to help in the decision process of intensive care unit (ICU) versus non-ICU admission for patients with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Pediatric risk of mortality (PRISM) scores have long been used to assess mortality risk. This study assess the usefulness of the traditional PRISM score and adaptation of that score (PRISM-ED, which uses presentation data only) in predicting hospital stay in pediatric patients with DKA. PRISM and PRISM-ED were tested for correlation with length of stay and length of ICU stay. A medical record review was conducted for patients admitted to The Children's Hospital of Alabama with DKA during an 18-month period (n = 79). Two scores were calculated for each study entrant: PRISM using the worst recorded values over the first 24 hours and PRISM-ED using arrival values. Median scores, median test, and Spearman rank correlations were determined for both tests. Median PRISM scores were PRISM = 11 and PRISM-ED = 12; Median PRISM and PRISM-ED scores for patients admitted to the ICU were less than median scores among floor-admitted patients: [table: see text] Spearman rank correlations were significant for both scores versus total stay: PRISM, rs = 0.29; P = 0.009; PRISM-ED, rs = 0.60, P < 0.001. Also, correlations were significant for both scores versus ICU stay: PRISM rs = 0.22, P = 0.05; PRISM-ED, rs = 0.41, P < 0.001. Triage guidelines for ICU versus floor admission for DKA patients could have significant economic impact (mean ICU charge = $11,417; mean charge for floor admission = $4,447). PRISM scores may be an important variable to include in a multiple regression model used to predict the need for ICU monitoring.  (+info)

Unintentional poisoning hospitalisations among young children in Victoria. (2/535)

OBJECTIVES: To describe the epidemiology of unintentional childhood poisoning hospitalisation in Victoria, Australia, in order to monitor trends and identify areas for research and prevention. METHODS: For children under 5 years, all Victorian public hospital admissions, July 1987 to June 1995, due to unintentional poisoning by drugs, medicines, and other substances were analysed. Similar cases were also extracted from the database of the Royal Children's Hospital intensive care unit, Melbourne for the years 1979-91. Log linear regression modelling was used for trend analyses. RESULTS: The annual average childhood unintentional poisoning rate was 210.7 per 100,000. Annual rates for males consistently exceeded those for females. The most common agents were those acting on the respiratory system and on smooth and skeletal muscles (muscle relaxants, cough and cold medicines, antiasthmatics), aromatic analgesics (paracetamol), and systemic agents (including antihistamines). Further investigation is justified for cardiac agents, some respiratory agents, and asthma medications. CONCLUSIONS: Childhood poisoning hospitalisation rates have not decreased in Victoria over recent years. A focused, agent specific approach, as well as a series of generic measures for the prevention of poisoning to children under 5 is advocated. The ongoing surveillance, collection and analysis of data, in addition to research on specific poisoning agents are essential components of any prevention strategy.  (+info)

Capillary refill and core-peripheral temperature gap as indicators of haemodynamic status in paediatric intensive care patients. (3/535)

OBJECTIVES: Capillary refill time is an important diagnostic adjunct in the acute resuscitation phase of the shocked child. This study assesses its relation to commonly measured haemodynamic parameters in the postresuscitation phase when the child has reached the intensive care unit, and compares this with core-peripheral temperature gap. METHODS: Ninety standardised measurements of capillary refill time were made on 55 patients, who were divided into postcardiac surgery (n = 27), and general (n = 28), most of whom had septic shock (n = 24). A normal capillary refill time was defined as < or = 2 seconds. Measured haemodynamic variables included: cardiac index, central venous pressure, systemic vascular resistance index, stroke volume index (SVI), and blood lactate. Seventy measurements were made on patients while being treated with inotropes or vasodilators. RESULTS: Capillary refill time and temperature gap both correlated poorly with all haemodynamic variables among post-cardiac surgery children. For general patients, capillary refill time was related to SVI and lactate; temperature gap correlated poorly with all variables. General patients with a prolonged capillary refill time had a lower median SVI (28 v 38 ml/m2) but not a higher lactate (1.7 v 1.1 mmol/l). A capillary refill time of > or = 6 seconds had the best predictive value for a reduced SVI. CONCLUSION: Among ventilated, general intensive care patients, capillary refill time is related weakly to blood lactate and SVI. A normal value for capillary refill time of < or = 2 seconds has little predictive value and might be too conservative for this population; septic shock.  (+info)

Tracheobronchial malacia and stenosis in children in intensive care: bronchograms help to predict oucome. (4/535)

BACKGROUND: Severe tracheobronchial malacia and stenosis are important causes of morbidity and mortality in children in intensive care, but little is known about how best to diagnose these conditions or determine their prognosis. METHODS: The records of all 62 children in whom one or both of these conditions had been diagnosed by contrast cinetracheobronchography in our intensive care unit in the period 1986-95 were studied. RESULTS: Seventy four per cent of the 62 children had congenital heart disease; none was a preterm baby with airways disease associated with prolonged ventilation. Fifteen of the children had airway stenosis without malacia; three died because of the stenosis and two died from other causes. Twenty eight of the 47 children with malacia died; only eight children survived without developmental or respiratory handicap. All children needing ventilation for malacia for longer than 14 consecutive days died if their bronchogram showed moderate or severe malacia of either main bronchus (15 cases), or malacia of any severity of both bronchi (three additional cases); all children needing ventilation for malacia for longer than 21 consecutive days died if their bronchogram showed malacia of any severity of the trachea or a main bronchus (three additional cases). These findings were strongly associated with a fatal outcome (p<0.00005); they were present in 21 children (all of whom died) and absent in 26 (of whom seven died, six from non-respiratory causes). They had a positive predictive value for death of 100%, but the lower limit of the 95% confidence interval was 83.9% so up to 16% of patients meeting the criteria might survive. CONCLUSION: In this series the findings on contrast cinetracheobronchography combined with the duration of ventilation provided a useful guide to the prognosis of children with tracheobronchomalacia. The information provided by bronchoscopy was less useful.  (+info)

Critical pathways for postoperative care after simple congenital heart surgery. (5/535)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical, financial, and parent/patient satisfaction impact of critical pathways on the postoperative care of pediatric cardiothoracic patients with simple congenital heart lesions. STUDY DESIGN: Critical pathways were developed by pediatric intensive care nurses and implemented under the direction of pediatric cardiothoracic surgeons. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Critical pathways were used during a 12-month study on 46 postoperative patients with simple repair of atrial septal defect (ASD), coarctation of the aorta (CoA), and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Using the study criteria, a control group of 58 patients was chosen from 1993. Prospective and control group data collected included postoperative intubation time, total laboratory tests, arterial blood gas utilization, morphine utilization, time in the pediatric intensive care unit, total hospital stay, total hospital charges, total hospital cost, and complications. Variances from the critical pathway and satisfaction data were also recorded for study patients. RESULTS: Resource utilization was reduced after implementation of critical pathways. Significant reductions were seen in total hours in the pediatric intensive care unit, total number of laboratory tests, postoperative intubation times, arterial blood gas utilization, morphine utilization, length of hospitalization (ASD, 4.9 to 3.1 days; CoA, 5.2 to 3.2 days; and PDA, 4.1 to 1.4 days; all P < 0.05), total hospital charges (ASD, $16,633 to $13,627; CoA, $14,292 to $8319; and PDA, $8249 to $4216; all P < 0.05), and total hospital costs. There was no increase in respiratory complications or other complications. Patients and families were generally satisfied with their hospital experience, including analgesia and length of hospitalization. CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of critical pathways reduced resource utilization and costs after repair of three simple congenital heart lesions, without obvious complications or patient dissatisfaction.  (+info)

Role of the intensive care unit in children undergoing bone marrow transplantation with life-threatening complications. (6/535)

The role of support measures in the Intensive Care Unit for bone marrow transplant recipients has been controversial. Data from 176 pediatric bone marrow transplants were retrospectively analyzed to ascertain the probability, causes, risk factors and survival for life-threatening complications requiring intensive care. Ninety-two patients underwent allogeneic BMT and 84 autologous BMT between January 1991 and December 1995. Thirty-one ICU admissions were recorded. The most frequent causes were acute respiratory failure (n = 15, mostly interstitial pneumopathies), septic shock (n = 5) neurological disorders (n = 5) and heart failure (n = 2). The cumulative incidence of an ICU admission at 20 months post-transplant in patients with an allogeneic BMT was 25.7% (CI: 16.4-35.1), compared with 10.8% (CI: 4.2-17.5) in those with an autologous graft (P = 0.04). ICU admission frequency was maximum during the first 2 months post-transplant. All complications in patients with autologous transplants appeared during the first 5 months post-transplant. Among patients with allogeneic grafts, four were later admitted to the ICU, at 7, 9, 12 and 20 months post-transplant, respectively. The main risk factor for ICU admission was acute GVHD grades III-IV. No differences were found between patients with allogeneic transplants with GVHD grades 0-II and those undergoing autologous transplant. In contrast, differences were highly significant between patients undergoing allogeneic transplants with GVHD grades III-IV and those with GVHD grades 0-II or autologous transplants. No differences were observed between allogeneic and autologous transplants in terms of causes for ICU admission, duration of stay, hours on mechanical ventilation, hours on inotropic drug therapy and numbers of organs failing. Neither were differences found in ICU discharge survival between patients with allogeneic (50%, CI: 29.1-70.9) and autologous (66.7%, CI: 29.9-89.1) transplants. ICU discharge survival in patients admitted for lung disease was 28.6% (CI: 12.1-65.6) but 76.5% (CI: 41.9-87.8) in patients admitted for other causes (P = 0.007). ICU discharge survival in mechanically ventilated patients was 46.2% (CI: 27.0-65.4), significantly lower than nonventilated patients (100%). Three-year survival in all transplanted patients admitted to the ICU was 29.7% (CI: 13.1-45.0) compared with 70.2% (CI: 62.7-77.6) in patients not requiring ICU admission (P<0.001). Although a complication requiring admission to the ICU is, as confirmed by multivariate analysis, an unfavorable factor in long-term survival of transplanted patients, it must be emphasized that three of every 10 patients admitted to the ICU were alive and well at 3 years. Intensive care support in these patients can be life-saving.  (+info)

National epidemiology of mycoses survey (NEMIS): variations in rates of bloodstream infections due to Candida species in seven surgical intensive care units and six neonatal intensive care units. (7/535)

Candida species are the fourth most frequent cause of nosocomial bloodstream infections, and 25%-50% occur in critical care units. During an 18-month prospective study period, all patients admitted for > or = 72 hours to the surgical (SICUs) or neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) at each of the participant institutions were followed daily. Among 4,276 patients admitted to the seven SICUs in six centers, there were 42 nosocomial bloodstream infections due to Candida species (9.8/1,000 admissions; 0.99/1,000 patient-days). Of 2,847 babies admitted to the six NICUs, 35 acquired a nosocomial bloodstream infection due to Candida species (12.3/1,000 admissions; 0.64/1,000 patient-days). The following were the most commonly isolated Candida species causing bloodstream infections in the SICU: Candida albicans, 48%; Candida glabrata, 24%; Candida tropicalis, 19%; Candida parapsilosis, 7%; Candida species not otherwise specified, 2%. In the NICU the distribution was as follows: C. albicans, 63%; C. glabrata, 6%; C. parapsilosis, 29%; other, 3%. Of the patients, 30%-50% developed incidental stool colonization, 23% of SICU patients developed incidental urine colonization, and one-third of SICU health care workers' hands were positive for Candida species.  (+info)

Status epilepticus on the paediatric intensive care unit-the role of EEG monitoring. (8/535)

A pilot study was undertaken of the feasibility of continuous EEG monitoring of patients admitted to a Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) for management of status epilepticus or its immediate sequelae. Eight children were studied and seizure activity was recorded in four patients. Additional information influencing management was obtained: the bedside nurse considered decerebrate posturing in one patient to be a seizure: there were no epileptiform EEG changes. Another patient was considered to have seizures (clonic movements of both upper limbs) following cardiac arrest; the EEG showed electrocerebral silence, and thiopentone treatment was discontinued. In another patient, continuing epileptiform activity on EEG gave intensivists the confidence to use higher than usual doses of thiopentone. The problems encountered were delays in monitoring, once for a CT scan and once because of two admissions within hours of each other. We conclude that EEG monitoring on a PICU is feasible and provides clinically useful information.  (+info)

OBJECTIVE To describe the characteristics and outcomes of mechanical ventilation in pediatric intensive care units during the season of acute lower respiratory infections. DESIGN Prospective cohort of infants and children receiving mechanical ventilation for at least 12 hrs. SETTING Sixty medical-surgical pediatric intensive care units. PATIENTS All consecutive patients admitted to participating pediatric intensive care units during a 28-day period. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS Of 2,156 patients admitted to pediatric intensive care units, 1185 (55%) received mechanical ventilation for a median of 5 days (interquartile range 2-8). Median age was 7 months (interquartile range 2-25). Main indications for mechanical ventilation were acute respiratory failure in 78% of the patients, altered mental status in 15%, and acute on chronic pulmonary disease in 6%. Median length of stay in the pediatric intensive care units was 10 days (interquartile range 6-18). Overall mortality rate in pediatric
INTRODUCTION: Severe acute asthma in children is associated with substantial morbidity and may require pediatric ICU (PICU) admission. The aim of the study was to determine risk factors for PICU admission. METHODS: The study used a retrospective multicenter case-control design. The cases included children admitted to the PICU because of severe acute asthma and a history of out-patient treatment by pediatricians or pediatric pulmonologists. Controls were children with asthma without a PICU admission for severe acute asthma. The children were matched for sex, age, hospital, and time elapsed since the diagnosis of asthma. Fourteen possible risk factors were analyzed. RESULTS: Sixty-six cases were matched to 164 controls. In univariate analysis, all but one of the analyzed variables were significantly associated with PICU-hospitalization. After multivariate conditional logistic regression analysis, 4 risk factors remained significant. These included active or passive smoking, allergies, earlier ...

PURPOSE: Critically ill or injured children require prompt identification, rapid referral and quality emergency management. We undertook a study to evaluate the care pathway of critically ill or injured children to identify preventable failures in the care provided. METHODS: A year-long cohort study of critically ill and injured children was performed in Cape Town, South Africa, from first presentation to healthcare services until paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) admission or emergency department death, using expert panel review of medical records and caregiver interview. Main outcomes were expert assessment of overall quality of care; avoidability of severity of illness and PICU admission or death and the identification of modifiable factors. RESULTS: The study enrolled 282 children, 252 emergency PICU admissions, and 30 deaths. Global quality of care was graded good in 10% of cases, with half having at least one major impact modifiable factor. Key modifiable factors related to access to care and
Sepsis is one of the main reasons for non-elective admission to pediatric intensive care units (PICUs), but little is known about determinants influencing outcome. We characterized children admitted with community-acquired sepsis to European PICUs and studied risk factors for mortality and disability. Data were collected within the collaborative Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)-funded EUCLIDS study, which is a prospective multicenter cohort study aiming to evaluate genetic determinants of susceptibility and/or severity in sepsis. This report includes 795 children admitted with community-acquired sepsis to 52 PICUs from seven European countries between July 2012 and January 2016. The primary outcome measure was in-hospital death. Secondary outcome measures were PICU-free days censured at day 28, hospital length of stay, and disability. Independent predictors were identified by multivariate regression analysis. Patients most commonly presented clinically with sepsis without a source (n = 278, 35%),

Providing evidence-based interventions for infants and children is important in paediatric intensive care, where decision making impacts most acutely on morbidity and mortality. However, despite the major progress of medicine in the 21st century, we still lack this evidence for majority of the decisions we make. In this article, we explore and suggest possible solutions for several dilemmas faced by paediatric intensive care researchers. These include ethical dilemmas such as validity of informed consent, use of deferred consent, balancing risk versus benefit and methodological dilemmas such as how to generate high-quality evidence with low-patient volume, choice of valid outcome measures and how best to use research and researchers networks.. ...
Objectives: To investigate the feasibility of obtaining signed consent for submission of patient identifiable data to a national clinical audit database and to identify factors influencing the consent process and its success. Design: Feasibility study. Setting: Seven paediatric intensive care units in England. Participants: Parents/guardians of patients, or patients aged 12-16 years old, approached consecutively over three months for signed consent for submission of patient identifiable data to the national clinical audit database the Paediatric Intensive Care Audit Network (PICANet). Main outcome measures: The numbers and proportions of admissions for which signed consent was given, refused, or not obtained (form not returned or form partially completed but not signed), by age, sex, level of deprivation, ethnicity (South Asian or not), paediatric index of mortality score, length of hospital stay (days in paediatric intensive care). Results: One unit did not start and one did not fully implement ...

Vancomycin trough (Vt) concentrations of 15-20 mcg/mL have been associated with an increased rate of renal injury in adults. Current data in pediatrics suggests Vts of 15-20 mcg/mL do not increase the risk of renal injury in children admitted to a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). The primary objective was to determine if a difference exists in the incidence of renal injury in PICU patients receiving a β-lactam as compared with vancomycin therapy with Vts of 15-20 mcg/mL. This was a retrospective cohort study conducted within a PICU within a freestanding tertiary care pediatric hospital. The records of children admitted to the PICU between 10/2008-6/2009 who received vancomycin for ≥48 h targeting higher Vt concentrations of ≥15 mcg/mL for pneumonia, bacteremia, and meningitis were reviewed. This cohort (V group) was compared to children admitted from July 2009-July 2013 who received cefepime or piperacillin/tazobactam for ≥72 h (B group). Serum creatinine values were collected from 48 h
Five patients had a positive history of contact to confirmed or suspected cases (three patients had contact to positive RT-PCR cases) or possible cases with fever and cough. The main symptoms were fever, cough, abdominal pain, lethargy and encephalopathy. The median time from the presentation of symptoms to PICU admission was 4.7 days (range 3-8 days).. All the children had tachypnoea and tachycardia on admission to the PICU. All patients had Pa02/Fio2 (the ratio of arterial oxygen partial pressure to fractionalinspired oxygen) less than 300 and nine patients needed intubation and mechanical ventilation (all were intubated due to respiratory failure outside the PICU). One patient responded to oxygen supplementation via non-rebreathing mask despite decreased o2 saturation and PaO2 of 47 mm Hg.. In other intubated patients, the main problem was severe hypoxia. Although they needed a low peak inspiratory pressure for acceptable tidal volume, their oxygen saturation could not reach 85%, so peak ...

Optimal delivery of nutritional support during critical illness is central to appropriate intensive care unit management, and yet fundamental gaps in knowledge exist regarding timing, route, dose, and type of nutritional support for critically ill infants and children. Understanding how to optimize nutritional support during pediatric critical illness is important because even brief periods of malnutrition in infancy result in permanent negative effects on long-term neurocognitive development. Optimized nutrition support is a way to improve morbidity for survivors of pediatric critical illness. Parenteral nutrition (PN) supplementation could improve long-term neurocognitive outcome for pediatric critical illness by preventing acute malnutrition, but has unknown effects on intestinal barrier function; a proposed mechanism for late sepsis and infectious complications during critical illness.. While randomized controlled trials (RCT) support early PN in premature infants and late PN in critically ...

Participants were 95 children aged 6-16 years admitted to the PICU and their parents. Children completed questionnaires and an interview assessing PTSS, peritrauma affect, and their memory of the admission 3 weeks following discharge. Medical data were extracted from patient charts. Premorbid and demographic data were provided by parent questionnaire. Most children remembered some aspects of their admission. Younger age, admission for traumatic injury (rather than non-injury-related reasons), and cognitive/affective factors including confusion, peritrauma panic, and sensory memory quality were associated with acute PTSS. Age and traumatic injury accounted for 18% of the variance in PTSS (p , .01). The addition of ...
