Critical Care Unit: ICU and HDU

B12

Outcomes

Patients are only admitted to the Critical Care unit if they have a high risk of death, but despite this, 82% of our patients survive. In fact, our survival statistics are better than much of the UK, with an extra 20 patients surviving critical illness every year because they were admitted to the RUH Critical Care Unit rather than an average critical care unit in the UK.

Data and results from our unit are analysed nationally, by the Intensive Care National Audit & Research Council (ICNARC).
