Description

The American Board of Pediatrics first recognized Pediatric Critical Care Medicine as a separate specialty in 1987. Since that time, the number of pediatric intensivists, pediatric intensive care units (PICUs), and PICU beds has continued to grow. Although mortality in PICUs has declined from more than 8% in 1987 to less than 3% today, many survivors of pediatric critical illness suffer chronic illness or disability. Continued research will generate new paradigms of therapy and advance existing management in order to improve short- and long-term outcomes from pediatric critical illness.
