Show Notes

Over the past decade, the annual hours of critical care delivered in US emergency departments has sharply risen. Undoubtedly, many critically ill patients remain in the ED for numerous hours awaiting an ICU bed.  In an attempt to improve the delivery of critical care to boarding ED patients, several hospitals and health care systems have recently implemented ED-based ICUs.  In this podcast, we discuss a recent article published in JAMA Open Network evaluating the impact on mortality and resource utilization of an ED-based ICU.
