This study will evaluate 12,000 admissions across the 8 Collaborative Pediatric Critical Care Research Network centers. The purpose of the project is to develop an outcome score which relates severity of illness at admission to the likelihood of subsequent death or new morbidity related to decreased functional status at the time of discharge from the pediatric intensive care unit. The hope is that this score will be used as an effective quality tool for assessing pediatric intensive care unit performances.
