ObjectivesDetermine prevalence, risk factors and outcomes of iatrogenic pneumothoraces (IPs) in a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).MethodsPatients with IP (cases) and patients without IP (controls) were retrieved from a 5-year prospective cohort of 645 PICU patients who received mechanical ventilation (MV).ResultsTwenty cases and eighty controls were assessed. The overall prevalence of IP was 3%. Eleven IPs were procedure-related IP and 9 MV related. Performance of thoracic invasive procedures (odds ratio 11) was the significant IP predictor in the logistic regression analysis. IP incidence was higher within 12 hours. There were no differences between the groups concerning duration of MV, length of PICU and hospital stays. IP patients had a significantly higher mortality rate (p = 0.005).ConclusionsPerformance of thoracic invasive procedures was strongly associated with IPs events in mechanically ventilated children. Many of these events may potentially be preventable with the implementation of quality improvement programs.
