Abstract

Introduction: Older age is associated with higher prevalence of chronic illness and functional impairment, contributing to an increased rate of hospitalization and admission to intensive care. The primary objective was to evaluate the rate, characteristics and outcomes of very old (age = 80 years) patients admitted to intensive care units (ICUs). Methods: Retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data from the Australian New Zealand Intensive Care Society Adult Patient Database. Data were obtained for 120,123 adult admissions for = 24 hours across 57 ICUs from 1 January 2000 to 31 December 2005.
