External Validation of the “Quick” Pediatric Logistic Organ Dysfunction-2 Score Using a Large North American Cohort of Critically Ill Children With Suspected Infection

6 monthes ago   |   By Pediatric Critical Care Medicine

Objectives:
A quick Pediatric Logistic Organ Dysfunction 2 score on day 1, consisting of tachycardia, hypotension, and altered mentation, was shown to predict mortality with an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of 82% in children admitted to a PICU with suspected infection. We performed an external validation of the quick Pediatric Logistic Organ Dysfunction 2, including its performance in predicting mortality in specific age groups.
Design:
Analysis of retrospective data obtained from the Virtual Pediatric Systems PICU registry.
Setting:
Prospectively collected...

Prevalence and Prognostic Value of Abnormal Liver Test Results in Critically Ill Children and the Impact of Delaying Parenteral Nutrition*

Prevalence and Prognostic Value of Abnormal Liver Test Results in Critically Ill Children and the Impact of Delaying Parenteral Nutrition*

6 monthes ago   |   By Pediatric Critical Care Medicine

Objectives:
In the Early versus Late Parenteral Nutrition in the Pediatric ICU randomized controlled trial, delaying parenteral nutrition to beyond day 7 was clinically superior to supplemental parenteral nutrition initiated within 24 hours , but resulted in a higher rise in bilirubin. We aimed to document prevalence and prognostic value of abnormal liver tests in the PICU and the impact hereon of withholding early parenteral nutrition.
Design:
Preplanned secondary analysis of the Early versus Late Parenteral Nutrition in the Pediatric ICU randomized controlled trial. Total bilirubin...
