ICU capacity is a current and future health system challenge in Canada, as stays there are resource-intensive and costly. The aging population and concerns around the potential increase in severity of illness among hospital patients could place additional demands on Canadian ICUs in the coming decades. Care in Canadian ICUs provides information on operating patterns, patient flows, trends in admissions, patient populations and processes of care for those treated in the ICU. This report and its companion products can help inform evidence-based system improvement efforts by providing a baseline of comparable measures.
