Objectives To determine the current mortality rates for pediatric patients with septic shock and the frequency and outcome of associated multiple organ system failure. Design Retrospective chart review. Setting Multidisciplinary pediatric intensive care unit. Patients Children age 1 month to 21 yrs admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit from January 1, 1998, to December 31, 1999, with a diagnosis of septic shock. Interventions None. Measurements and Main Results A database of all… 
Mortality rates in pediatric septic shock
TLDR
The mortality rate in pediatric septic shock in Sardjito General Hospital is very high and there is a higher incidence of fluid overload in the non-survival group.
Infectious Etiologies and Patient Outcomes in Pediatric Septic Shock
TLDR
Critically ill children with septic shock treated in a children's hospital ED who received antibiotics in ≤1 hour were significantly more severely ill than those treated later, but they did not have increased risk of NP-MODS or death.
Pediatric infection and sepsis in five age subgroups: single-center registry
TLDR
The findings on children treated in the pediatric intensive care unit conform with current literature about pediatric sepsis, such as the quick administration of empirical broad-spectrum antibiotics, initial adequate fluid resuscitation, and a reliable and frequent routine of source control.
Etiology and prognostic factors of sepsis among children and adolescents admitted to the intensive care unit
TLDR
Gram-negative bacteria and Staphylococcus aureus predominated in the etiology and clinical disease progression variables of sepsis associated with the prognosis of patients admitted to a pediatric intensive care unit and the presence of complications was a factor associated with death.
Incidence of and mortality due to sepsis, severe sepsis and septic shock in Italian Pediatric Intensive Care Units: a prospective national survey
TLDR
It is suggested that application of the new definitions for sepsis diagnosis and diffusion of guidelines for early recognition and aggressive treatment of severe Sepsis and septic shock in Italy represent a high priority to reduce mortality.
Risk of Mortality in Immunocompromised Children With Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock
TLDR
Multiple prior malignancies, hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, congenital immunodeficiency, and hematopoietic cell transplant are independently associated with an increased odds of PICU mortality in children with severe sepsis or septic shock.
Clinical, Demographic Profile and Outcome of Children Admitted in PICU with A Diagnosis of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock
TLDR
Sepsis remain as leading cause of mortality in PICU and PRISMIII had the excellent prediction of death.
Delayed Antimicrobial Therapy Increases Mortality and Organ Dysfunction Duration in Pediatric Sepsis*
TLDR
Delayed antimicrobial therapy was an independent risk factor for mortality and prolonged organ dysfunction in pediatric sepsis and persisted after adjustment for individual confounders and a propensity score analysis.
Epidemiology and Outcome of Sepsis in a Tertiary Care PICU of Pakistan
TLDR
The presence of septic shock and MODS is associated with high mortality in the PICU of developing countries, and the independent predictors of mortality were modeled using multiple logistic regression.

Improved outcomes of children with malignancy admitted to a pediatric intensive care unit
TLDR
A high proportion of oncology patients admitted to the PICU requiring intensive intervention survive and go on to be cured of their malignancy, suggesting the P ICU outcome for these patients has improved.
Epidemiology of sepsis and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome in children.
TLDR
The presence of SIRS, sepsis, or septic shock is associated with a distinct risk of mortality among critically ill children admitted to the pediatric ICU; more data are needed concerning children with MODS.
Outcome of pediatric patients with multiple organ system failure
TLDR
MOSF is significantly associated with mortality in pediatric patients; however, it is not sufficiently discriminating to determine continuation or withdrawal of ICU support, and comparison with data from adult ICU patients indicates that the mortality and clinical course of MOSF in children is distinct from adults.
Role of early fluid resuscitation in pediatric septic shock.
TLDR
Rapid fluid resuscitation in excess of 40 mL/kg in the first hour following emergency department presentation was associated with improved survival, decreased occurrence of persistent hypovolemia, and no increase in the risk of cardiogenic pulmonary edema or adult respiratory distress syndrome in this group of pediatric patients with septic shock.
Epidemiology of severe sepsis in the United States: Analysis of incidence, outcome, and associated costs of care
TLDR
Severe sepsis is a common, expensive, and frequently fatal condition, with as many deaths annually as those from acute myocardial infarction, and is especially common in the elderly and is likely to increase substantially as the U.S. population ages.
Clinical practice parameters for hemodynamic support of pediatric and neonatal patients in septic shock*
TLDR
American College of Critical Care Medicine adult guidelines for hemodynamic support of septic shock have little application to the management of pediatric or neonatal septicshock.
Procalcitonin and cytokine levels: Relationship to organ failure and mortality in pediatric septic shock
TLDR
The admission PCT, like TNF and IL-10, is related to the severity of organ failure and mortality in children with septic shock, and a fall in PCT after 24 hrs of treatment may have favorable prognostic significance.
Hemodynamic Support in Fluid-refractory Pediatric Septic Shock
TLDR
Unlike adults, children with fluid-refractory shock are frequently hypodynamic and respond to inotrope and vasodilator therapy and an incorrect cardiovascular therapeutic regimen should be suspected in any child with persistent shock.
The prognosis of oncologic patients in the pediatric intensive care unit
TLDR
The PRISM score is not suitable for oncologic patients in the PICU, because it underestimates the observed mortality, and other factors like neutropenia, septic shock, the need for mechanical ventilation, and inotropic support should be taken into consideration.
