This study examined the cost-effectiveness of triage for admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) compared with the conventional ward for critically ill patients. The authors concluded that ICU admission was cost-effective, particularly for those who were more seriously ill. The analytic framework was valid and despite some limitations, the authors’ conclusions appear to be robust.
