#PICANet annual report 2017-19 was released today.
Key takeaway messages from the annual report are available in the report summary.

1. UK/RoI #PedsICU have around 20k admissions/year and ~140k bed-days/year
2. 96.5% of all admissions survived
3. Deaths in #PedsICU accounted for ~1/6 of all child deaths
4. all UK/RoI PICUs were contained within the "funnel" of the risk-adjusted SMR funnel-plot (i.e., no outliers)
5. Unplanned extubation rates were around 0.5/100 vent days
6. 48h unplanned readmission rates ~1.7%
7. Of the >4000 #PedsICU transfers, >75% were mobilised <60min of the referral.
8. Occupancy rates remained high
9. Nurse-establishment vacancies meant that only 25% of PICUs met recommended standards of whole-time equivalent nurses.

#COVID19 #Kinder #Schulöffnungen:
Zwischen 2 Stellungnahmen der @DGKJ_eV u. Partnern, DASS Schulen offen sein müssen, und WIE das gelingen kann, ein persönlicher Thread, der die Thematik #Kinder und #Infektionen etwas breiter beleuchten soll (Fakten/Meinung gekennzeichnet!)

Was wissen wir (Fakten)?

1. Bei Kindern wurden bislang in D. unterproportional viele #SARS_CoV2 Infektionen nachgewiesen. Ihr Anteil steigt aber.

2. Kinder infizieren sich womöglich weniger leicht als Erwachsene (weniger ACE2 Rezeptoren? andere Ursachen? noch unklar?)

3. Kinder scheiden vergleichbar viele Viren aus wie Erwachsene, sind möglicherweise genauso ansteckend (siehe @c_drosten), insbesondere Jugendliche

4. Kinder erkranken MIT SICHERHEIT nicht so schwer an #COVID19 wie Erwachsene

🔵Janet Englund, Fred Hutch, US up next on #flu and other respiratory viruses (RespVs)
🔵slow cell/antigen based testing to PCR-based testing has vastly improved speed - notsomuch in surveillance setting
🔵 #Flu viruses not the only game in town

🔵What is "important" among RespVs
🔵34% of US kids in childcare (24% in AUS)
🔵Seattle #flu study (2018-2019)
🔵identify importation, within-host evolution, compare clinical characteristics & improve understanding in certain populations
🔵So, in childcare...
🔵things are easier now compared to decades past (e.g. Paul Glezen, only detect 31% of infections)
🔵then, newer molecular methods found 4.2 symptomatic virus episodes/child
🔵now, 103 enrolled , half the embers of each room
