VIP1 Background

This study addressed the ICU care of the very old, defined as patients ≥ 80 years, admitted to the ICU. The study was the first large multinational study, with a basis in Europe, to study the frequency of ICU admission in the very old patients and the use of common ICU resources including ICU and hospital LOS. Outcome was registered as outcome at ICU discharge and at 30 days. We also studied the feasibility of a very simple frailty index. Patients were recruited from October 2016 to May 2017.
