The Prevalence of Chronic Critical Illness in Turkey

2017-08-28 19:46:56 | BioPortfolio

Summary

It is known that the number of Chronic Critical İllnes, an iatrogenic condition, increases all over the world. The prevalence of Chronic Critical Illness in Turkey is unknown. The investigators aimed to evaluate the etiology, comorbid conditions, demographic data, prevalence, mortality and costs of these patient in intensive care units in Turkey. In this multi-centered study, The investigators will retrospectively review the last 1 year of patients receiving treatment at the Adult Intensive Care Unit.

Description

The patients who survive an acute critical illness in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) may be delayed in a situation where they are sometimes totally independent before hand due to iatrogenic causes such as infections, dysfunctions, psychological disorders. This can take weeks, sometimes months. This disease is called "Chronic Critical Illness" (CCI).

Most researchers associate CCI with the need for prolonged acute mechanical ventilation or the opening of tracheostomy for prolonged acute mechanical ventilation. There is no single condition that does not require an extended mechanical ventilation from CCI. In conclusion, CCI is characterized by long-term care requiring survival and it is predicted that the cost of these patients will increase with the new patients whose cost will be added in the coming years. In the United States, the number of CCI is around 250,000, and this figure has increased by 50-100% in the last 10 years. At least 50% of these patients die in one year and less than 12% recover and become discharged. The annual cost of these patients' health care system is over $ 20 billion. The prevalence of CHD in Turkey is still unknown. In this study, it was aimed to investigate the prevalence of patients with Chronic Critical Syndrome in intensive care units in Turkey.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disease or state in which death is possible or imminent.

The state of being deprived of sleep under experimental conditions, due to life events, or from a wide variety of pathophysiologic causes such as medication effect, chronic illness, psychiatric illness, or sleep disorder.

The personal cost of acute or chronic disease. The cost to the patient may be an economic, social, or psychological cost or personal loss to self, family, or immediate community. The cost of illness may be reflected in absenteeism, productivity, response to treatment, peace of mind, QUALITY OF LIFE, etc. It differs from HEALTH CARE COSTS, meaning the societal cost of providing services related to the delivery of health care, rather than personal impact on individuals.

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports clinical and basic research to establish a scientific basis for the care of individuals across the life span, from the management of patients during illness and recovery to the reduction of risks for disease and disability; the promotion of healthy lifestyles; the promotion of quality of life in those with chronic illness; and the care for individuals at the end of life. It was established in 1986.

Historical term for a chronic, but fluctuating, disorder beginning in early life and characterized by recurrent and multiple somatic complaints not apparently due to physical illness. This diagnosis is not used in contemporary practice.
