Long-term survival and quality of life after intensive care for patients 80 years of age or older

Background Comparison of survival and quality of life in a mixed ICU population of patients 80 years of age or older with a matched segment of the general population. Methods We retrospectively analyzed survival of ICU patients ≥80 years admitted to the Haukeland University Hospital in 2000–2012. We prospectively used the EuroQol-5D to compare the health-related quality of life...

Age, Risk, and Life Expectancy in Norwegian Intensive Care: A Registry-Based Population Modelling Study

Background Knowledge about the expected life years gained from intensive care unit (ICU) admission could inform priority-setting decisions across groups of ICU patients and across medical specialties. The aim of this study was to estimate expected remaining lifetime for patients admitted to ICUs during 2008–2010 and to estimate the gain in life years from ICU admission. Methods...

Norwegian PUQE (Pregnancy-Unique Quantification of Emesis and Nausea) Identifies Patients with Hyperemesis Gravidarum and Poor Nutritional Intake: A Prospective Cohort Validation Study

Objective The English questionnaire Pregnancy-Unique Quantification of Emesis and nausea (PUQE) identifies women with severe Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Our aim was to investigate whether scores from the translated Norwegian version; SUKK (SvangerskapsUtløst Kvalme Kvantifisering) was associated with severity of hyperemesis and nutritional intake. Design A prospective cohort...

Epidemiology of sepsis in Norway in 1999

Introduction Sepsis and severe sepsis are asociated with high hospital mortality. Little is known about the occurrence of sepsis in general hospital populations. The goal of the present study was to reveal the epidemiology of sepsis in Norwegian hospitals over 1 year. Methods Patients admitted to all Norwegian hospitals during 1999 (n = 700,107) were analyzed by searching the...

Multiple organ failure after trauma affects even long-term survival and functional status

Background The aim of this study was to assess the incidence of organ failure in trauma patients treated in an intensive care unit (ICU), and to study the relationship between organ failure and long-term survival and functional status. Methods This is a cohort study of all adult ICU trauma patients admitted to a university hospital during 1998 to 2003. Organ failure was...

Intensive care diaries reduce new onset post traumatic stress disorder following critical illness: a randomised, controlled trial

Introduction Patients recovering from critical illness have been shown to be at risk of developing Post Traumatic Stress disorder (PTSD). This study was to evaluate whether a prospectively collected diary of a patient's intensive care unit (ICU) stay when used during convalescence following critical illness will reduce the development of new onset PTSD. Methods Intensive care...

Cost of intensive care in a Norwegian University hospital 1997–1999

Aim The present study was performed in order to document costs of intensive care in a Norwegian university hospital and to perform an average cost-effectiveness study using the expected remaining life-years in survivors after 18 months. Materials and methods Patients admitted to the general intensive care unit (ICU) at Haukeland University Hospital from 1997 to 1999 were followed...

Outcome after acute respiratory failure is more dependent on dysfunction in other vital organs than on the severity of the respiratory failure

Introduction The incidence and outcome of acute respiratory failure (ARF) depend on dysfunction in other organs. As a result, reported mortality in patients with ARF is derived from a mixed group of patients with different degrees of multiorgan failure. The main goal of the present study was to investigate patient outcome in single organ ARF. Patients and method From 1 January...

Outcome after acute respiratory failure is more dependent on dysfunction in other vital organs than on the severity of the respiratory failure

The incidence and outcome of acute respiratory failure (ARF) depend on dysfunction in other organs. As a result, reported mortality in patients with ARF is derived from a mixed group of patients with different degrees of multiorgan failure. The main goal of the present study was to investigate patient outcome in single organ ARF. From 1 January 2000 to 1 July 2002, all adult...
