Comparison of PECARN
, CATCH, and CHALICE rules for children with minor head injury: a prospective cohort study.
These new PECARN rules perform much better than previous pediatric clinical predictors and differ in several ways from the 8 older pediatric head CT imaging rules.
The PECARN rules should guide, rather than dictate, clinical decision making.
In developing the clinical prediction rule, the PECARN
investigators have "impressively derived and validated a high-quality and well-performing clinical prediction rule" that meets the need to predict whether a child with a head injury needs to have a CT scan, Dr.
The Data Coordinating Center (DCC) serves as a central repository for data generated by the PECARN
research nodes, and works with investigators to ensure data quality.
We conducted a retrospective, observational cohort study of children presenting with acute illnesses and injuries to 12 EDs participating in PECARN
. At the time of the study, there were four "nodes" participating in PECARN
, and each node included between five and six EDs for a total of 22 PECARN
The study was conducted in the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN
) and supported by grants from the Health Resources and Services Administration, the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the Emergency Medical Services for Children program, and the National Institutes of Health.
Should every patient with LOC be scanned (PECARN

In the current study, researchers in the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN
) sought to define a group of genes that could serve as a biosignature in infants.
