  1. Pediatric Trauma center criteria : An outcomes analysis. Commentary.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Annual Meeting of the Section on Surgery of the American Academy of Pediatrics. San Francisco, CA, USA, 1998/10/16.

    Background/Purpose 

    Trauma centers (TC) are certified based on widely accepted criteria.

    These specific criteria rarely are scrutinized individually.

    The purpose of this study was to analyze the individual components of a pediatric trauma center for their effect on outcome.

    Methods 

    Members of the National Pediatric Trauma Registry were queried about the following : (1) separate pediatric emergency department (ED), (2) pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), (3) pediatric intensivist as PICU director, (4) pediatric surgeon as TC director, (5) in-house attending surgeon, (6) in-house pediatric emergency physician, (7) 24-hour operating room, (8) 24-hour computed tomography (CT) scan.

    Victims were stratified based on age (<7 or >=7 years) and severity of injury (ISS <= 16,17-35, >=36).

    Results were compared using Student's t test and X2 analysis.

    Results 

    A total of 59 of 74 centers responded, 18 were dropped because of low enrollment (mean, 1.6 patients).

    Questions 3,4,6, and 7 were eliminated because of skewed data.

    An in-house surgeon reduced the amount of time a mildly injured patient (ISS <= 16) spent in the ED (210 v 434 minutes), as did the separate pediatric ED (333 v592 minutes) and pediatric emergency physicians (344 v 507 minutes) in younger patients (>=7 years).

    An in-house surgeon reduced the morality rate in older (>=7) severely injured (ISS >= 36) patients (46. (...)
