Trauma is a leading cause of mortality and disability in children worldwide, with 95% of all childhood injury deaths occurring in Low-Middle Income Countries (LMICs). A study conducted by McGill University used trauma registry data to develop and validate the Pediatric Resuscitation and Trauma Outcome (PRESTO) score, adapted for LMICs. The study's lead author approached Distilled with the goal of using the findings of the study to create an online calculator that predicts in-hospital mortality in pediatric trauma patients.
Distilled created a dynamic, web-based calculator based on 6 simple point-of-care physiologic variables. With intuitive interactions and responsive UI elements, the model can be easily explored without prior knowledge.
