June 23, 2022 Medical Science 0

The current study’s objectives were to summarise the clinical characteristics and prognosis of our PICU patients and to identify potential changes that may be made to improve the prognosis of critically sick children. Pediatric critical care’s main goal is to restore a child who is suffering from a life-threatening condition to health with the least amount of discomfort, worry, and difficulties, as well as to soothe and support the kid’s family. This is a Hospital based, retrospective, descriptive research, in a tertiary care institution in puducherry, south India. Participants were children who were admitted to and received care in the paediatric ICU at Sri Venkateshwara Medical College Hospital and Research Center, Puducherry, between January 2019 and December 2019. According to this study, the most typical clinical profile seen was respiratory sickness and infectious disorders. Out of 345 kids brought to the paediatric intensive care unit, 303 (87.8%) were released as a result, it was reported. A total of 37 patients (or 10.7%) disobeyed medical advice, while 5 patients (or 1.4%) were referred at the parents’ request. The study would like to suggest for additional comprehensive prospective investigations in future, with emphasis on the awareness of the most prevalent and developing unusual aetiology of patients referred to PICU.
