Coming soon: updates to the PICANet Data Dashboard

Next week we will refresh and update the PICANet Data Dashboard. The January – December 2022 data will be added and we are pleased to include data from all participating organisations in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

The update includes the new addition of numbers and rates of unplanned extubations in all PICUs.

Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) data collection

We are pleased to announce that PICANet are launching the Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) data collection. This comprises of both an ECMO Referral and ECMO Admission dataset.

Initially, data will be collected using paper data collection forms. This is to allow for a review of the dataset and data collection tool while the software to support the collection in PICANet Web is developed.  This also allows for you to develop an understanding of completing the data collection forms and how this will work practically on your unit. Only those units who undertake ECMO will be required to complete these forms, and forms will need to be completed retrospectively for the current financial year (from 01/04/2023).

More information can be found on the customised data collection webpage.
