PICU Survival Rates PICU Survival Rates

Dayton Children’s uses PRISM to measure the Pediatric Risk of Mortality for patients receiving care in a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).  The scoring focuses on the severity and intensity of illness during the first 12 hours that a child is in the intensive care unit. It is calculated across many physiologic variables which are translated into a PRISM score used to determine the risk of mortality (predicted death).

The data collected over the last four years shows a rate of survival for children with very serious illness or injury that is better than predicted based on the PRISM score.
