RESEARCH: “Development of the Pediatric Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Prediction Model for Risk-Adjusting Mortality.”

OBJECTIVES: To develop a prognostic model for predicting mortality at time of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation initiation for children which is important for determining center-specific risk-adjusted outcomes.

DESIGN: Multivariable logistic regression using a large national cohort of pediatric extracorporeal membrane oxygenation patients.

SETTING: The ICUs of the eight tertiary care children’s hospitals of the Collaborative Pediatric Critical Care Research Network.

PATIENTS: Five-hundred fourteen children (< 19 yr old), enrolled with an initial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation run for any indication between January 2012 and September 2014.
