SCCM Pod-369 Hospital Variation in Risk-Adjusted Pediatric Sepsis Mortality

Margaret Parker, MD, MCCM, speaks with Stefanie G. Ames, MD, about the article “Hospital Variation in Risk-Adjusted Pediatric Sepsis Mortality,” published in the May 2018 issue of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. Dr. Ames discusses study findings regarding the development of a method to evaluate hospital pediatric sepsis performance and how to assess hospital variation in risk-adjusted sepsis mortality in a large state-wide sample. Dr. Ames is a pediatric critical care fellow at the University of Pittsburg School of Medicine in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. She is working with the Clinical Research Investigation and Systems Modeling of Acute Illness (CRISMA) Center in the department of critical care medicine. Ped Crit Care Med. 2018; 19(5):390-396.

SCCM Pod-367 Variability in Antibiotic Use Across PICUs
Margaret Parker, MD, MCCM, speaks with Thomas V. Brogan, MD, about the article “Variability in Antibiotic Use Across PICUs,” published in the June 2018 issue of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. Dr. Brogan discusses study findings regarding the variation in antibiotic use in pediatric intensive care units (PICUs) across institutions. He considers how overuse or inappropriate use can be addressed in PICUs in the future. Dr. Brogan is a Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine at the Seattle Children’s Hospital and the University Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, Washington.

SCCM Pod-364 Characterization of Pediatric In-Hospital CPR Quality Metrics
Margaret Parker, MD, MCCM, speaks with Dana E. Niles, MS, about the article “Characterization of Pediatric In-Hospital Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Quality Metrics Across an International Resuscitation Collaborative,” published in the May 2018 issue of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. Dr. Niles discusses study findings regarding American Heart Association guidelines compliance and the landscape of pediatric in-hospital cardiac arrest chest compression quality metrics across an international pediatric resuscitation collaborative. Dr. Niles is the Research Program Manager at the Center for Simulation, Advanced Education and Innovation at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the Program Director for the Pediatric Resuscitation Quality Collaborative.

SCCM Pod-362 Time of Admission to the PICU and Mortality
Margaret Parker, MD, MCCM, speaks with Michael C. McCrory, MD, MS, about the article, “Time of Admission to the PICU and Mortality,” published in the October 2017 issue of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. Dr. McCrory discusses research findings examining how admissions and discharges to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) vary throughout the day and whether off-hours admissions or other factors lead to a higher rate of mortality in the PICU. Dr. McCrory is an associate professor and pediatric intensive care attending in the Department of Anesthesiology in the Section of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Ped Crit Care Med. 2017; 18(10):915-923.

SCCM Pod-355 The Epidemiology of Hospital Death Following Pediatric Severe Sepsis
Margaret Parker, MD, MCCM, speaks with Scott L. Weiss, MD, MSCE, about the article, “The Epidemiology of Hospital Death Following Pediatric Severe Sepsis: When, Why, and How Children With Sepsis Die,” published in the September 2017 issue of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. Dr. Weiss discusses research findings regarding when, why, and the mode in which children with sepsis die, and how understanding these factors is important in setting appropriate clinical and research priorities. Dr. Weiss is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Critical Care Medicine in the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
