Abstract As the population ages, the number of elderly patients admitted to the ICU continues to rise. The physiological changes associated with ageing represent a challenge for the management of this often-fragile population at high cognitive risk. An epidemiologic and evolution profile in our Moroccan context is necessary to improve survival and its quality in post-intensive care in our elders.
This is a retrospective analytic study including all patients over 65 years of age admitted to the A4 polyvalent intensive care unit of the Hassan II University Hospital in Fez, from January 2017 to December 2021, excluding patients initially admitted for COVID-19 infection. The epidemiology, stay, management and outcome data were collected and analyzed.
