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.
Various scoring systems have been developed to allow for assessment of the quality of care in PICUs
Most cases transferred to PICUs
received no further care beyond continuous albuterol.
There is very little data available about cost studies in PICUs
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.
Methods: Retrospective review of medical records of children (1 mo-16 years) with acute neurological diagnosis admitted in PICU
in Aga Khan University hospital from January 2008 to December 2011 was done.
For those wanting a lightweight and small electronic pipette, the Sartorius Biohit Picus
is the ideal choice.
The objective of the study was assessment of risk of mortality using PRISM III-24 score in children admitted to PICU
of Basaweshwara Teaching and General Hospital, attached to Mahadevappa Rampure Medical College, Gulbarga.
Purpose: Paediatricians who passed the "Atestat" program on paediatric intensive care deliver high quality PICU
services based on international standards.
This audit was designed to generate outcome data regarding staff usage of the new checklist within a PICU
The introduction of a new checklist-style nursing documentation tool in the PICU
at a major metropolitan paediatric hospital in Australia provided an opportunity to assess the level of staff compliance with institutional documentation.
