A two-part prospective study of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) in Indian children was carried out at a teaching general hospital.
Using an inhospital intensive surveillance scheme (IISS) for the detection of ADRs, indoor patients of one of the two units in the pediatric ward were monitored daily for 6 months, with the other unit serving as a control group.
A total of 347 patients were monitored, 2781 daily orders written and 24,474 doses of 96 different drugs given.
Six patients suffered from ADRs (1.73%), and 1 reaction proved fatal (0.29%), while the control group reported only 1 ADR in the same time period.
