[Admission, discharge and triage guidelines for paediatric intensive care units in Spain].

An Pediatr (Barc) 2018 May;88(5):287.e1-287.e11

Centro de Críticos, Corporació Sanitaria Parc Taulí, Sabadell, Barcelona, España; CIBER de Enfermedades Respiratorias, Instituto de Salud Carlos III, Madrid, España; Instituto de Investigación e Innovación Parc Taulí, Sabadell, Barcelona, España.

A paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) is a separate physical facility or unit specifically designed for the treatment of paediatric patients who, because of the severity of illness or other life-threatening conditions, require comprehensive and continuous inten-sive care by a medical team with special skills in paediatric intensive care medicine. Timely and personal intervention in intensive care reduces mortality, reduces length of stay, and decreases cost of care. With the aim of defending the right of the child to receive the highest attainable standard of health and the facilities for the treatment of illness and rehabilitation, as well as ensuring the quality of care and the safety of critically ill paediatric patients, the Spanish Association of Paediatrics (AEP), Spanish Society of Paediatric Intensive Care (SECIP) and Spanish Society of Critical Care (SEMICYUC) have approved the guidelines for the admission, discharge and triage for Spanish PICUs.
