CONTEXT: The high-complexity features of intensive care unit services and the clinical situation of patients themselves render correct prognosis fundamentally important not only for patients, their families and physicians, but also for hospital administrators, fund-providers and controllers. Prognostic indices have been developed for estimating hospital mortality rates for hospitalized patients, based on demographic, physiological and clinical data.

Objective: To compare the effects of early tracheostomy and of late tracheostomy in patients with acute severe brain injury. Desenvolvido por:. Introduction Tracheostomy is a procedure commonly performed in patients admitted to the ICU with respiratory failure. Tracheostomy has been reported to have advantages over translaryngeal intubation, although there is no consensus regarding such advantages. Among them, the following are of note: easier handling of the airways; greater patient comfort and facility of communication, reducing the need for sedation; possibility of oral feeding; improved respiratory mechanics; reduced trauma in the oral cavity; prevention of ventilator-associated pneumonia VAP ; and easier weaning.
Scoring systems in the intensive care unit: A compendium
Correspondence Address : Dr. Introduction: Intensive care units ICUs receive obstetric patients with medical and surgical complications as well as obstetrical emergencies.
These patients needing intensive care present an exclusive challenge both for the obstetrician as well as the intensivist. In developing countries such as India, due to scarcity of ICU resources, maternal morbidity and mortality of such patients is high.
Objectives: The aim of our study was to examine the pattern of admission, prevalence, causes, and the outcomes of critically ill obstetric patients admitted to an Indian ICU and the factors affecting mortality. Materials and Methods: A prospective study of all obstetric patients pregnant and within 6 weeks postpartum admitted in a bedded ICU of a tertiary care hospital over a period of 18 months from January to June was done.
The data collected included demographics, obstetric and medical history, illness severity scores, organ failures, treatment given, the ICU stay, hospital stay, and outcomes. Results: A total of 48 obstetric patients were admitted in the ICU during the study period. Mean age was Mortality of study patients was 8. Average ICU stay was 6. Early assessment and intervention of critically ill obstetrical patients with a team approach involving obstetricians and intensivists is ideal.

Early versus late tracheostomy in patients with acute severe brain injury
Show all documents The comparison of apache II and apache IV score to predict mortality in intensive care unit in a tertiary care hospital Both APACHE models have shown good performance in the developed countries and other parts of the world. Thus, more studies in multiple center involving larger patient population are needed to validate both the scoring systems in developing countries like ours and separate scoring systems that correct the pitfalls in resource limited environment need to be developed for good predictability. In addition, an anesthesiologist was defined as a resident doctor 24 hours. This changes caused us to have anticipation of less mortality and more favorable outcome but this was not the case as is shown here.

Risk prediction models allow clinicians to forecast which individuals are at a higher risk for developing a particular outcome. We developed and internally validated a delirium prediction model for incident delirium parameterized to patient ICU admission acuity. Risk factors included in the model were readily available in electric medical records. Least absolute shrinkage and selection operator logistic LASSO regression was used for model development. Discrimination was determined using area under the receiver operating characteristic curve AUC.
Background: The acute physiology score is determined from the most deranged worst physiologic value, for example, the lowest blood pressure or the highest respiratory rate, during the initial 24 h after Intensive Care Unit ICU admission. The aim of present study is to apply Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II APACHE II scoring system to surgical patients who have been critically ill preoperatively requiring elective surgical intervention or who underwent extensive elective surgery thereby requiring post-operative critical care monitoring and treatment in the post-operative ward or ICU or surgical ward. Materials and Methods: This prospective study was carried out on critically ill surgical patients from August to December in M.
