Diagnostic errors in the intensive care unit: a systematic review of autopsy studies
TLDR
Whether potentially fatal ICU misdiagnoses would be more common than in the general inpatient population, and would involve more infections or vascular events, and the prevalence and impact of diagnostic errors as a non-linear function of the autopsy rate is modelled. Expand
Diagnostic Errors in the Pediatric and Neonatal ICU: A Systematic Review*
TLDR
Although missed infections were most common in both settings, missed vascular events were more common in the PICU and missed congenital conditions in the neonatal ICU, and diagnostic errors are most commonly due to infection. Expand
A Multicenter Outcomes Analysis of Children With Severe Viral Respiratory Infection Due to Human Metapneumovirus
TLDR
Analysis of the results suggests that there is substantial morbidity and mortality associated with severe viral respiratory infection due to human metapneumovirus in children, and female gender, hospital acquisition of infection, and presence of chronic medical conditions each independently increases mortality. Expand
A qualitative study of expert and team cognition on complex patients in the pediatric intensive care unit*
TLDR
It is found that at the center of this framework, critical care teams attempt to create and share mental models of their patients, and these mental models serve as the framework for delivery of longitudinal care across handovers and shift changes. Expand
Implementation of an ICU Bundle: An Interprofessional Quality Improvement Project to Enhance Delirium Management and Monitor Delirium Prevalence in a Single PICU*
TLDR
Implementation of an ICU bundle along with staff education and case conferences is effective for improving delirium screening, detection, and treatment and is associated with decreased delIRium prevalence. Expand
Pediatric Anti-N-Methyl-d-Aspartate Receptor Encephalitis: A Review with Pooled Analysis and Critical Care Emphasis
TLDR
Anti-NMDA encephalitis is a formidable disease with great variation in clinical presentation and response to treatment, and a multidisciplinary approach by physicians may provide earlier access to first- and second-line therapies. Expand
Real-time forecasting of pediatric intensive care unit length of stay using computerized provider orders
TLDR
A model to produce real-time, updated forecasts of patients’ intensive care unit length of stay using naturally generated provider orders was designed to be integrated within a computerized decision support system to improve patient flow management. Expand
Dirofilariasis in wild canids from the Gulf coastal prairies of Texas and Louisiana, U.S.A.
TLDR
Heartworms, Dirofilaria immitis, were recovered from 17 out of 24 coyotes, Canis latrans, 38 out of 46 coyote × red wolf hybrids and all of 8 red wolves collected from the Gulf coastal prairies of southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana. Expand
Redistribution of Pulmonary Blood Flow Impacts Thermodilution-based Extravascular Lung Water Measurements in a Model of Acute Lung Injury
TLDR
The abrupt increase in EVLW and shunt fraction after endotoxin administration is consistent with inactivation of hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction and increased perfusion to already flooded lung regions that were previously thermally silent. Expand
