PECARN

PECARN stands for the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network – the first multi-institutional network funded by the US federal government.

Our PECARN calculator for pediatric head injury computes the risk of a traumatic brain injury that may have a critical impact on a child’s life or health. The PECARN rule is also used for assessing the need for a Computer Tomography (CT) scan.
