  1. Private attending physician status and the withdrawal of life-sustaining interventions in a medical intensive care unit population.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To assess the influence of private attending physician status on the withdrawal of life-sustalning interventions among patients dying within a medical intensive care unit (ICU).

    Design 

    Retrospective cohort analysis.

    Setting 

    An academic tertiary care center.

    Patients 

    One hundred fifty-nine consecutive patient deaths occurring in the medical ICU during a 12-month period. interventions : None.

    Measurements and Main Results 

    Withdrawal of life-sustaining interventions (i.e., mechanical ventilation, dialysis, and/or vasopressors), duration of mechanical ventilation, length of intensive care unit stay, medical care costs, and patient charges were recorded.

    Life-sustaining interventions were actively withdrawn from 69 (43.4%) patients prior to death.

    Patients without a private attending physician were significantly more likely to undergo the withdrawal of life-sustaining interventions compared with patients having a private attending physician (odds ratio=2.5 ; 95% confidence interval=1.8,3.6, respectively ; p=005).

    A correlation was found between the possession of private health insurance and private attending physician status (r2=39, p<. 001).

    Multiple logistic regression analysis was subsequently used to control for demographic factors and severity of illness.

    Three independent predictors for the withdrawal of life-sustaining Interventions were identified in this patient cohort (p<. (...)
