ROSETE GAMBOA., Elio Manuel et al. Prognostic Factors for Severe Community Pneumonia in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Bayamo. 2016-2019. Multimed [online]. 2020, vol.24, n.5, pp.1068-1085.  Epub 07-Set-2020. ISSN 1028-4818.

Introduction:

community acquired pneumonia (CAP) is an acute infection of the lung parenchyma that affects a previously healthy or immunocompetent patient exposed to a microorganism outside the Hospital.

Objective:

to determine the main prognostic factors for mortality of severe community-acquired pneumonia in patients admitted with this diagnosis to the Bayamo PICU, during 2016-2019.

Methods:

a prospective, analytical, observational, cross-sectional cohort study was carried out to determine the prognostic factors associated with mortality from severe community pneumonia in the Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the General Luís Ángel Milanés Tamayo Pediatric Teaching Hospital in Bayamo, during the years 2016-2019.

Results:

the concomitant presence of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, sepsis, and age less than one year, were factors favoring death in patients with severe community pneumonia.

Conclusions:

the exposure of the patients to the association of the factors of the resulting predictive model, determined a probability of death of 29%.
