Completed Research Projects

ABC PICU (Age of Blood in Children in Pediatric Intensive Care Units)

CO-PI: Leslie Avery, MD; Peter Pelletier, MD
Multicenter (>40 children’s hospitals) randomized clinical trial comparing the clinical consequences of RBC storage duration in 1538 critically ill children.


COBO2 (Continuous vs BOlus Nasogastric Feeding in Mechanically Ventilated Pediatric Patients 2

CO-PI: Torrey Baines, MD; Charlene Pringle, APRN
Multicenter (7 children’s hospitals) randomized clinical trial comparing continuous versus bolus gastric feeding modes for timing and delivery of prescribed energy (kcal/kg/day) and protein (g/kg/day) for over 200 mechanically ventilated children 1 month through 12 years of age.

Continuous Albuterol (FM vs HFNC)

CO-PI: Nekaiya Jacobs, MD; Jennifer Munoz, MD
Single center observational study comparing outcomes of high flow nasal cannula and face mask for continuous albuterol delivery and association with length of stay, asthma scores, and need for escalation of therapy.

Thenar tissue oxygenation (StO2): A non-invasive surrogate marker for central venous oxygen saturation.

PI: Ravi Samraj
Study comparing thenar tissue oxygenation device with traditional central venous oxygen saturations in critically ill children.


CO-PI: Molly Mcgetrick, MD; Jennifer Munoz, MD
Single center, CAPD scoring for up to 7 days on most PICU and PCICU patients to define prevalence of delirium in our patient population.

NPO/NIV (Nutritional practices and outcomes in non-invasive ventilation)

PI: Charlene Pringle
Multicenter (>80 children’s hospitals) period prevalence study evaluation nutiritional practices and patient outcomes across global regions for enteral and parenteral nutrition for infants and children initiated on NIV (BiPAP, CPAP, HFNC) for six 7 day study periods over 2017 and 2018.
