Outcome of children with sickle cell disease admitted to intensive care - a single institution experience

Abstract : We retrospectively audited children with sickle cell disease admitted to paediatric intensive care (PICU) at King's College Hospital between January 2000 and December 2008. 46 children with SCD were admitted, on 49 separate occasions. Ages ranged from 4 months to 15 years (median 7.6 years). Three children died in PICU, however two presented to hospital in cardiorespiratory arrest; overall mortality was 6%. The most common reason for admission was acute chest syndrome (43%). 88% of admissions required blood transfusion, of which 74% had exchange blood transfusions. The mortality among children with SCD admitted to PICU is low.
