The PANGEA study

PANGEA is an international prospective point prevalence study with follow-up outcomes to investigate the epidemiology of acute critical neurologic disease in children.

The short term objective of this study is to describe the epidemiology and gross outcomes of acute critical neurologic disease in children. The long term objectives of this study are four-fold: 1) To assist in the design of prospective clinical trials, 2) To assess for change in epidemiology and outcome over time, 3) To assist in the disbursement of healthcare resources for treatment and rehabilitation, and 4) To develop a network for communication and collaborations across the globe.
