Avoiding stay in the intensive care unit after liver transplantation: A score to assign location of care
from American Journal of Transplantation
Select liver transplantation (LT) recipients in this program are transferred from operating room to postanesthesia care unit for recovery and extubation with transfer to the ward, completely eliminating an intensive care unit stay. Developing a reliable method to determine patients suitable for fast-tracking would be of practical benefit to centers considering this practice. The aim of this study was to create a fast-tracking probability score that could be used to predict successful assignment of care location after LT.
