Show Notes

Emergency department (ED) visits for critically ill patients has nearly doubled over the past decade.  Unfortunately, ED boarding of critically ill patients awaiting ICU admission has also risen significantly, and is associated with several adverse patient outcomes.  In this podcast, we review a white paper on boarding of the critically ill ED patient just published in Critical Care Medicine by a joint task force from ACEP and SCCM.  If you care for the critically ill ED boarder in your ED, you CAN’T afford to miss this discussion!
