The VIP1 study has ended and VIP2 is underway
The results from VIP1 have been published in Intensive Care Medicine:
with additional data about the participating ICUs published in this paper:
The VIP1 results were also presented at ESICM Lives 2017.
We want to thank everyone for their participation and enthusiasm which was over and beyond expectations.
The VIP1 study was endorsed by ESICM (European Society of Intensive Care Medicine).
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, 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.
