Formatted Abstract/Summary
Predicting outcome and potential lung disease for any child suffering from severe respiratory failure in the paediatric intensive care unit is difficult. The causes of the acute respiratory failure are diverse and still not well understood. In simple terms, it may be concluded that high pressures and supplementary oxygen in the phase of acute respiratory failure increase the likelihood that complications and subsequent death may occur. As a simple rule of thumb, if the oxygenation index after intubation exceeds 15-20 and there follows prolonged mechanical ventilation, a poor outcome is likely.
