Benefits of Intensive Care Unit Admission for Patients with Acute Respiratory Failure or Sepsis

Ideal and optimally efficient use of intensive care unit (ICU) resources would create benefits across the health care system. Ideal use of ICU resources requires a needs assessment to determine which categories of patients commonly admitted to ICUs derive true net benefit on average from ICU admission versus admission to a regular hospital floor. This project aims to conduct such a needs assessment, which has never before been done.
