The VIP2* study is an international, multicenter study of the old intensive care unit population.
The aim is development and validation of a mortality risk score for very old intensive care patients.

The VIP2 study builds on the successful VIP1 study which was published in 2017.
ICU recruitment took place from the fall of 2017 until fall of 2018 and is closed.
Patient recruitment started between May 2018 and October 2018.
Patients can be included for 6 months (until May 2019) or until 20 patients have been included for the individual ICU (whichever comes first).

30 day follow-up for the last patients can then be recorded no later than late June 2019.
6 month follow-up data (for sites participating in 6 month follow-up) should be recorded no later than in November 2019.
