Predicting disability and death after the ICU
from Medical Xpress
A growing number of older adults are surviving visits to hospital intensive care units, but many emerge with disabilities such as impaired walking and poor overall function. A new study by Yale School of Medicine researchers shows that the level of disability the year before an ICU visit can predict post-ICU disability and death. The results appear in the Feb. 9 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine.
