Abstract

Background: PICU main focuses were on the area of life support with intensive monitoring and special care aiming save the lives of critically ill children, paying attention to physical and psychological sequelae, and trying to maximize the quality of life. Researches on the quality of life of survivors of PICU is still limited, especially in Indonesia. Objective: To assess the relationship between age and quality of life of children with intensive care. Methods: A cross-sectional study of patients aged 2-18 years with a history of being treated at the PICU of the Haji Adam Malik Hospital, Medan, from January 2017- December 2018. Assessment for the quality of life was carried out using the Peds QLTM 4.0 questionnaire containing 4 task domains; the physical function domain, emotional function domain, social function domain, and school function domain. Patients were interviewed by Peds QL for parent reporting 1-2 years after discharge from PICU treatment. Results: A total of 45 research subjects were analyzed. There were differences in quality of life based on age groups, the higher the age of the subjects the better the quality of life (p<0.05). There were differences in quality of life on the domain of physical function, social function domain, and domain of school function by age group, which the higher the age of the subject the better the quality of life (p <0.05), while one domain is emotional function, there was no difference on quality of life based on age group (p> 0.05). The 2-4 years age group had problems on all four domains, while the higher age group is 5-18 years did not suffer problems in all four task domains. Conclusion: There are differences in quality of life based on age groups, which the higher the age of the subject, the better the quality of life.
