He was once a king, named Picus, and a pretty good sort of a king, too, only rather too proud of his purple robe, and his crown, and the golden chain about his neck; so he was forced to take the shape of a gaudy-feathered bird.
Hardly were the words spoken, and before the bird had time to utter another "pe--weep," King Picus leaped down from the bough of a tree, as majestic a sovereign as any in the world, dressed in a long purple robe and gorgeous yellow stockings, with a splendidly wrought collar about his neck, and a golden crown upon his head.
The objectives of this study were to describe the clinical course of children managed in the paediatric intensive care unit (PICU
) at RCWMCH with laboratory-confirmed H1N1 infection, and to compare the clinical course of these children with a cohort of other respiratory viral isolates admitted to the PICU
during the same period.
For those wanting a lightweight and small electronic pipette, the Sartorius Biohit Picus
is the ideal choice.
Purpose: Paediatricians who passed the "Atestat" program on paediatric intensive care deliver high quality PICU
services based on international standards.
Though flu vaccination was associated with a significant reduction in risk of PICU
admission, flu vaccine coverage was relatively low among the children in this study: only 18 percent of flu cases admitted to the ICU had been fully vaccinated.
This audit was designed to generate outcome data regarding staff usage of the new checklist within a PICU
This was a one-setting study and findings may not be transferable to other PICUs
in different areas or with different patient populations.
Cases were defined as illness in patients <15 years of age who had a laboratory-confirmed infection with pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus (determined by PCR, virus isolation, or antigen detection) and were admitted to a PICU
This prospective observational cohort study was conducted at the PICU
of the University Hospital, Crete.

all directly compared risk-adjusted mortality of critically ill children in dedicated PICUs
to those in non-paediatric ICUs.
