Abstract

Question What are international trends in hospitalizations for children and youth with SARS-CoV-2, and what are the epidemiological and clinical features of these patients? Findings This cohort study of 671 children and youth found discrete surges in hospitalizations with variable trends and timing across countries. Common complications included cardiac arrhythmias and viral pneumonia, and laboratory findings included elevations in markers of inflammation and abnormalities of coagulation; few children and youth were treated with medications directed specifically at SARS-CoV-2. Meaning These findings suggest large-scale informatics-based approaches used to incorporate electronic health record data across health care systems can provide an efficient source of information to monitor disease activity and define epidemiological and clinical features of pediatric patients hospitalized with SARS-CoV-2 infections.
