    Article - En anglais

    The working practices and outcomes from UK intensive care units are poorly documented to date.

    We have reviewed 2000 consecutive admissions to one intensive care unit in a tertiary referral centre with intially six, then eight beds.

    The study was a retrospective review of contemporaneous data collection within the period 1986-1990.

    Demographic details, referral source, admission time, admission diagnosis.

    APACHE II score, therapeutic interventions, and outcome were recorded.

    A high overall mortality in the intensive care unit (23%), proportional to APACHE II scoring on admission, was demonstrated.
