Validation of a Clinical Prediction Rule for Pediatric Abusive Head Trauma

as taken from Children’s Safety Network
Dec 09, 2014

To reduce missed cases of pediatric abusive head trauma (AHT), Pediatric Brain Injury Research Network investigators derived a 4-variable AHT clinical prediction rule (CPR) with sensitivity of .96. Our objective was to validate the screening performance of this AHT CPR in a new, equivalent patient population.
