PURPOSE: Patients in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) typically receive prolonged sedation and analgesia as pain management and to facilitate intensive care therapies. Those patients are at risk to develop iatrogenic withdrawal syndrome (IWS) when medications are suddenly stop or weaned too quickly. We investigated the incidence and risks factors of IWS in critically ill children that were admitted to PICU, and assessed validity of the Withdrawal Assessment tool (WAT-1) in children exposed to opioids and benzodiazepines for 3 days or more.
