Theme: Intensive care Background: There has been an increased number of critically ill patients admitted to paediatric departments. Only a few studies have described the various causes of unplanned admission to paediatric intensive care units (PICU) due to clinical deterioration. However, an understanding of the nature of illness is important to patient safety.

PURPOSE: This study described the frequency, clinical characteristics and outcomes of children who experience unplanned admission to a PICU due to clinical deterioration.

METHODS: A registry retrospective descriptive study describing and exploring life-threatening situations leading to unexpected transfers to PICU in hospitalised children. The study includes all paediatric departments in the Central Denmark Region.

PERSPECTIVE: This study will provide knowledge to assist the research efforts to identify and improve the management of critical ill children in paediatric wards.
