Children treated with mechanical ventilation consumes a comparatively large part of medical resources. It is thus essential to be able to continously evaluate this treatment, not only as mortality at the department but also as mortality and morbidity after discharge from the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). The aim of this study was to determine the outcome of patients treated with mechanical ventilation in our pediatric intensive care unit and to estimate resources consumed in measuring length of stay in the unit and after discharge.
