Objectives: Interventional trials aimed at pediatric acute respiratory distress syndrome prevention require accurate identification of high-risk patients. In this study, we aimed to characterize the frequency and outcomes of children meeting “at risk for pediatric acute respiratory distress syndrome” criteria as defined by the Pediatric Acute Lung Injury Consensus Conference.

Modifiable Risk Factors for Delirium in Critically Ill Trauma Patients: A Multicenter Prospective Study. J Intensive Care Med. 2019 Apr;34(4):330-336. PMID: 28335673.
OBJECTIVE: Intensive care unit (ICU)-acquired delirium has been associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Prevention strategies including modification of delirium risk factors are emphasized by practice guidelines. No study has specifically evaluated modifiable delirium risk factors in trauma ICU patients. Our goal was to evaluate modifiable risk factors for delirium among trauma patients admitted to the ICU.
