ABSTRACT

Objective: To know the morbility and morbidity in an ICU of a general hospital of Mérida, México.
Design: Retrospective study.
Setting: ICU of a general hospital of Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico.
Patients: Two thousand and eight hundred ninety nine patients (1,521 men and 1,378 women), mean age 39.4 ± 19.2 yrs (range 11-98 yrs) admitted to the ICU from January 1994 to December 2004 were included.
Interventions: None.
Measurements and main results: Severe trauma head injury (313 patients, 10.7%) and eclampsia (254 patients, 8.76%) were the most frequent diagnosis. ICU stay was 5.1 ± 4.64 days (range 1-60 days) and the mortality rate was 22.1% due to septic shock (178 patients, 28.2%), multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (142 patients, 22.7%), and brain dead (113 patients, 17.9%).
Conclusion: The most important cause of admission to the ICU is different from other causes reported in several studies in our country, however the mortality rate is similar.


Key words: ICU, diagnosis, mortality, morbidity, ICU stay.
