WARNING: The calculator's PedVAE determination may be affected when the patient crosses the 30-day threshold during the period of interest (2 day baseline period and 2 day period of worsening oxygenation).

* All values of MAP less than 8 cmH2O (or less than 10 cmH2O **) are
considered to be 8 cmH2O (or 10**) for purposes of the PedVAE definition. So for
MAP values entered as less than or equal to 8 (or 10**) cmH2O, an increase in
the daily minimum MAP to at least 12 cmH2O (or 14**), sustained for 2 or more
calendar days, is required to meet the PedVAE definition.
** 10 for patients greater than or equal to 30 days
