  1. The use of risk predictions to identify candidates for intermediate care units : implications for intensive care utilization and cost.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To develop a predictive equation that estimates the probability of life-supporting therapy among ICU monitor admissions and to explore its potential for reducing cost and improving ICU utilization.

    Design 

    Prospective inception cohort analysis.

    Participants 

    Forty-two ICUs in 40 US hospitals with more than 200 beds and a consecutive sample of 17,440 ICU admissions.

    Interventions 

    A multivariate equation was developed to estimate the probability of life support for ICU monitoring admissions during an entire ICU stay.

    Measurements 

    Demographic, physiologic, and treatment information obtained during the first 24 h in the ICU and over the first 7 ICU days.

    Results 

    The most important determinants of subsequent risk for life-supporting (active) treatment were diagnosis, the acute physiology score of APACHE III, age, operative status, and the patient's location and hospital length of stay before ICU admission.

    Review of outcomes and the type and amount of therapy received suggest that most low-risk ICU monitor admissions could be safely cared for in an intermediate care setting.

    Conclusion 

    Objective predictions can accurately identify groups of ICU admissions who are at a low risk for receiving life support.

    This capability can be used to assess ICU resource use and develop strategies for providing graded critical care services at a reduced cost. (CHEST 1995 ; 108 : 490-99).
