Paediatric Intensive Care Database

A paediatric intensive care database for researchers around the world

PIC(paediatric Intensive Care) database is a large, single-center database comprising information relating to patients admitted to critical care units at the Children's Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine. It is a supplement to the well-known MIMIC database which provided a real clinical database for many data science researchers and supported many research projects. We hope this open paediatric intensive care database will also help improve the quality of intensive care for children.
