The burden of pediatric neurocritical care in the United States.
This article attempts to quantify the burden of pediatric neurocritical care (PNCC) by developing national estimates of disease incidence, evaluating use of critical care interventions (CCI), and examining hospital outcomes. The Kids Inpatient Database (KID) was analyzed to evaluate cohorts with the following conditions: traumatic brain injury, neuro-infection, or inflammatory diseases; status epilepticus; stroke; hypoxic ischemic injury after cardiac arrest; or spinal cord injury.
