    Article - En anglais

    The Therapeutic Intervention Scoring System (TISS) is an easily applicable method for measurement of workload in the intensive care unit (ICU).

    In the present study a modified TISS-scoring (mTISS) was performed daily during 1988-1989 on 2693 patients in a general ICU.

    Of these, 900 could be classified as « true » ICU-patients (ICU-stay>=24 or TISS>=20 points), whereas the rest were postoperative.

    In ICU-patients the average length of stay was 4.5+-8.9 days and the average workload 114=218 m TISS-points.
