Summary of "Contributors to frailty in critical illness: Multi-dimensional analysis of the Clinical Frailty Scale."

Frailty in critical illness is common and associated with poor outcomes, however little is known about contributing factors. We compared the Clinical Frailty Scale (CFS) with a multi-dimensional validated tool, the Edmonton Frail Scale (EFS), and investigated which health domains are affected by frailty in ICU.
