Background. The optimal perioperative use of intensive care unit (ICU) resources is not yet defined. We sought to determine the effect of ICU admission on perioperative (30 day) and long-term mortality. Methods. This was an observational study of all surgical patients in Scotland during 2005–7 followed up until 2012. Patient, operative, and care process factors were extracted. The primary outcome was perioperative mortality; secondary outcomes were 1 and 4 yr mortality. Multivariable regression… Expand
Critical care admission following elective surgery was not associated with survival benefit: prospective analysis of data from 27 countries
TLDR
There was no survival benefit from critical care admission following surgery and the relationship between the provision and use of critical care resources and postoperative mortality was described. Expand
Intensive care admission and hospital mortality in the elderly after non-cardiac surgery.
TLDR
Elderly patients (over 80 years) appear less likely to be admitted to ICU after non-cardiac surgery in Spanish hospitals, and there was no significant association between age and postoperative mortality in this cohort. Expand
Impact of postoperative intensive care unit utilization on postoperative outcomes in adults undergoing major elective noncardiac surgery.
TLDR
Hospital-specific ICU admission practice showed no association with the patient-centered outcome of DAH in select elective major noncardiac surgical procedures in select major electiveNoncardiac surgery groups. Expand
The risk of postoperative deterioration of non-cardiac surgery patients with ICU referral status who are admitted to the regular ward: a retrospective observational cohort study
TLDR
Post-operative deterioration occurs frequently, and early, in a cohort of high-risk surgical patients initially assessed as being safe for ward care, and changes to current triage models for post-operative intensive care unit admission may reduce the impact of complications in this high- risk group. Expand
Intensive care utilization following major noncardiac surgical procedures in Ontario, Canada: a population-based study
TLDR
There is a wide variation in early ICU admission across and within surgical procedures, and better methods for allocating ICU resources for postoperative management of surgical patients are required. Expand
Critical care usage after major gastrointestinal and liver surgery: a prospective, multicentre observational study
TLDR
No 30‐day survival benefit was identified for either planned or unplanned postoperative admissions to critical care within this cohort, and substantial inter‐centre variation exists in planned critical care admissions after emergency laparotomies. Expand
ICU admission after surgery: who benefits?
TLDR
Findings suggest that use of alternatives to ICU such as post anaesthesia care units, high dependency units, or specialist wards with enhanced nursing care are able to perform some elements of ICU monitoring in a less intensive environment, and may provide a better alternative to the traditional model ofICU admission. Expand
Use of failure-to-rescue to identify international variation in postoperative care in low-, middle- and high-income countries: a 7-day cohort study of elective surgery
TLDR
Comparison of failure-to-rescue rates across health care systems suggests the presence of preventable postoperative deaths, indicating differences between hospitals in the risk of death among patients after they develop complications. Expand
Mortality of Patients Requiring Escalation to Intensive Care within 24 Hours of Admission in a Mixed Medical-Surgical Population
TLDR
In a large retrospective study, surgical patients had increased 1-year mortality if they required escalation to the ICU within 24 hours of hospital admission, possibly related to a burden of illness that could not be altered by earlier care. Expand
The association between ICU admission and emergency hospital readmission following emergency general surgery
Background The relationship between postoperative intensive care (ICU) admission following emergency general surgery (EGS) and emergency hospital readmission has not been widely investigated. MethodsExpand

Mortality after surgery in Europe: a 7 day cohort study
TLDR
Variations in mortality between countries suggest the need for national and international strategies to improve care for patients undergoing inpatient non-cardiac surgery. Expand
Regional variation in critical care provision and outcome after high-risk surgery
TLDR
Significant regional variation in hospital mortality for patients admitted to critical care following surgery was observed and critical care bed utilisation seemed to better explain this observation and was associated with improved outcome. Expand
Intensive Care after High-risk Surgery: What's in a Name?
TLDR
The findings of an important analysis of a large Medicare data set exploring the association between mortality, length of hospital stay, and healthcare costs with ICU admission for patients older than 65 yr undergoing one of five major surgical procedures between 2004 and 2008 are reported. Expand
Thirty-Day Postoperative Mortality Risk Estimates and 1-Year Survival in Veterans Health Administration Surgery Patients.
TLDR
Deciles of 30-day mortality estimates are associated with significantly different survival outcomes at 365 days even after removing patients who died within the first 30 postoperative days, and these findings reinforce the usefulness of 30/30 mortality risk stratification as a surrogate for long-term outcomes. Expand
An observational study to determine the effect of delayed admission to the intensive care unit on patient outcome
TLDR
No significant difference in length of ICU stay or mortality rate was demonstrated between the delay and no-delay cohorts, and patients within the delay group had a significantly greater requirement for advanced respiratory support and spent a longer time ventilated. Expand
Delayed admission to intensive care unit for critically surgical patients is associated with increased mortality.
TLDR
Prolonged waiting hours in PACU because of ICU bed shortage was associated with higher ICU mortality for critically surgical patients, and was not associated with mechanical ventilation days, ICU length of stay, and ICU cost. Expand
Delay to admission to critical care and mortality among deteriorating ward patients in UK hospitals: a multicentre, prospective, observational cohort study
TLDR
This study has shown that the deteriorating ward patient is vulnerable with a high short-term mortality and arose both from the inability to perfectly triage these patients, and from limits to the capacity of the system. Expand
Determinants of Long-Term Survival After Major Surgery and the Adverse Effect of Postoperative Complications
TLDR
The occurrence of a 30-day postoperative complication is more important than preoperative patient risk and intraoperative factors in determining the survival after major surgery in the VA. Expand
Use of Intensive Care Services for Medicare Beneficiaries Undergoing Major Surgical Procedures
TLDR
There is little consensus regarding the need for intensive care for patients undergoing major surgical procedures and no relationship between a hospital’s use of intensive care and hospital mortality and there was a consistent association between high use ofintensive care with longer length of hospital stay and higher Medicare payments only for endovascular AAA.

Identification and characterisation of the high-risk surgical population in the United Kingdom
TLDR
The size of the high-risk general surgical population and the outcome and intensive care unit (ICU) resource use are estimated to be about 513,924 patients, which accounts for 12.5% of surgical procedures but for more than 80% of deaths. Expand
