Pediatric Acute Kidney Injury in COVID-19

Research Question:
What can we learn about COVID-19 in children by collecting health information from children with COVID-19 infection who are admitted to intensive care?

Basic Study Information

This study is an observational registry of children with or suspected to have SARS CoV2 (COVID-19) admitted to pediatric intensive care units (PICU). This registry will help describe the prevalence, rate and severity of acute kidney injury (AKI) in children with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2(SARS CoV2) across the world. The registry will be developed using a point prevalence methodology and then full retrospective review. Once a week, from April through June 2020, data collection will occur in "real-time" to estimate a weekly point prevalence of AKI and renal replacement therapy (RRT). The operational definition of "patients under investigation" (PUIs) will be used to identify the denominator of patients to be studied. The PUIs will be cohorted into SARS CoV2 test positive, test negative, test pending, or test unavailable. The primary aim of this study is to deliver a global, objective data driven analysis of the burden of AKI in virus positive patients or patients under investigation (PUI) who are admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit.
