ABSTRACTThe aging of the population has increased the demand for healthcare resources. Elderly patients will continue to make up a major portion of patients requiring critical care and will lead to an increasing demand for critical resources.

We must be aware that this age group requires a different approach. The Mexican College of Intensive Care Medicine stared with a related program to face this new challenge.
