Abstract

Improving outcomes in pediatric neurocritical care

 

Mortality in pediatric critical care has been historically quite low (recently as low as 2% in some pediatric intensive care units).  Paradoxically, this can make it difficult to study the effect of therapeutic interventions, especially when using mortality as a clinical endpoint.  Over the past 15 years, we have, through a process focusing on multi-professional collaboration to develop best practices, developed a neurocritical care program that has led to significantly improved outcomes in some areas of neurocritical care such as traumatic brain injury.
