  1. ICU intensive care unit; PICU pediatric intensive care unit, NICU neonatal intensive care unit
  2. aBecause the total number of pediatric patients(35 patients) and deaths (3 patients) were very small, multivariable logistic regression analysis was not performed in pediatric patients
  3. b Biologically plausible variables with a value of P > 0.1 according to the univariate analyses were not included in the multiple logistic regression model
