Outcome of Pediatric Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Recipients Requiring Mechanical Ventilation
Journal of Intensive Care Medicine, 08/20/2012
Aspesberro F et al. – Six–month survival of pediatric HSCT patients was 25% and the odds of death were increased by cardiovascular failure but not by MOF. Receipt of mechanical support (ventilation, CRRT) or cardiovascular support (inotropic agents) decreased the likelihood of long–term survival.
