Research in acute care is a troubling area for Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval and informed consent.
Confusion about ethical and legal requirements has hampered research efforts and subsequent patient benefits.
Analysis: Acute care patients are the relatively few critical care patients who have suffered uneffected events that carry a high probability of mortality or severe morbidity unless immediate medical intervention is provided.
We argue that acute care research is justified if the usual ethical requirements for research are modified to reflect the uniqueness of the situation.
