Received Date: Aug 21, 2017 / Accepted Date: Aug 26, 2017 / Published Date: Aug 28, 2017
Advances in acute care medicine have increased the chances of survival for patients with severe illness or trauma. The major causes of modifiable and non-modifiable mortality among patients treated in medical or surgical intensive care units (ICUs) are trauma, sepsis, complications of diabetes mellitus type 2 and hypertension, respiratory support, CVA, electrolyte imbalance, poisoning and snake bite. Such analysis will give an insight into the various factors which led to death. The pre-hospital co-morbidities will reinforce the internist to anticipate and take appropriate measures to mitigate their onslaught. In this way, the mortality in the ICU may be curtailed.
