Emergency Department to ICU Time and Hospital Mortality

This was a retrospective observational cohort study using data from the Dutch quality registry National Intensive Care Evaluation evaluating ER to ICU times.

“Prolonged emergency departmentto ICU time (> 2.4 hr) is associated with increased hospital mortality after ICU admission, mainly driven by patients who had a higher Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation IV probability. We hereby provide evidence that rapid admission of the most critically ill patients to the ICU might reduce hospital mortality.”
