Polyneuropathy in critically ill children with infectious diseases
14 pediatric critically ill patients with various infectious pathologies were assessed. Electroneuromyography was carried out in all patients. Polyneuropathy of critical states were revealed in 10 children. It is shown that the frequency of severe form of this state was 40%. Polyneuropathy mostly affects the peripheral nerves of the lower extremities. Polyneuropathy developed typically on 5-7 day from the start of mechanical ventilation.
