    Article - En anglais


    To examine variations in case-mix, structure, resource use, and outcome performance among teaching and nonteaching intensive care units (ICU).


    Prospective inception cohort study.


    A consecutive sample of 15,297 patients at 35 hospitals, which compared 8,269 patients admitted to 20 teaching ICUs at 18 hospitals vs. 7,028 patients admitted to 17 non-teaching ICUs at 17 hospitals.




    We selected demographic, physiologic, and treatment information for an average of 415 patients at each ICU, and collected data on hospital and ICU structure.

    Outcomes were compared using ratios of observed to risk-adjusted predicted hospital death rates, ICU length of stay, and resource use.
