Mortality after surgery in Europe: a 7 day cohort study. As the number of hospital beds has diminished, intensive care has expanded in response to the growing demand for multiple organ support. All methods need prospective validation. Unintentional discontinuation of chronic medications is also common following discharge from the ICU, and is associated with adverse patient outcomes [9]. In general, there are at least 2 teams looking after the patient, the ICU Team and the “Primary” Team. Oxford University Press makes no representation, express or implied, that the drug dosages in this book are correct. 18 –22 Until ICU admission, emergency physicians performed all treatments, including endotracheal intubation, mechanical ventilation, continuous renal replacement therapy, extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation, and so on. Failure by physicians to understand patient preferences to forego life-sustaining treatments, and failure of the health care system to offer alternatives to hospitalization, result in excess burdens and costs of care. The earlier published guidelines (12) for pediatric critical care medicine were used to help establish the basic needs for a state-of-the-art PICU.
