Critical care practice has seen an increase in the development of multiorgan dysfunction syndrome (MODS). This presentation discusses the definition of MODS and the most common causes that predispose the pediatric patient to its development. A superficial discussion of the pathophysiologic mediators involved occurs; however, the presentation focuses on the signs and symptoms of the syndrome and its appropriate interventions. This presentation is designed for the nurse who cares for pediatric patients predisposed to the development of MODS. The nurse attending this session will be able to identify pediatric patients at risk for the development of MODS. The level of material covered is intermediate to advanced.
