Epidemiology and clinical outcomes of invasive candidiasis in critically ill patients in Saudi Arabia is not well studied. This observational study objectives include to determine the epidemiology, risk factors and outcomes of invasive Candida infection in critically ill patients in Saudi Arabia.
||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
||Invasive Candidiasis in Critically Ill Patients in Saudi Arabia: A Prospective Cohort Study
Primary Outcome Measures:
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- hospital mortality [ Time Frame: patients will be followed until discharge from the hospital and vital status at discharge from the hospital will be noted (expected hospital stay is 5 weeks). Hopsital mortality will be censored at 180 days after entry into the study. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
If patients are still alive at 180 days after entring the sudy, they will be considered hospital survivors.
- duration of mechanical ventilation [ Time Frame: date of extubtation minus date of intubation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
If multiple intubations in the same admission, then the durations of mechanical ventilation will be added.This will be assessed for up to 180 days of stay in the ICU.
- length of stay in the ICU [ Time Frame: date of discharge from ICU minus date of admission to ICU ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Patients will be followed for up to 180 days.Patinets alive in the ICU beyond 180 days of stay will have an ICU length of stay of 180 days.
- length of stay in the hospital [ Time Frame: date of discharge from hospital minus date of admission to hospital ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Patients will be followed for up to 180 days.Patinets alive in the hospital beyond 180 days of stay will have a hospital length of stay of 180 days.

|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
All adult patients (> 18 years) admitted to the ICUs of these centers will be evaluated for the occurrence of Candida infection and followed to discharge or death in ICU. The duration of the study will be 12 months. Also patients who had invasive candidiasis within 72 hours of ICU admission will be included.
- adult patients (> 18 years)
- develop invasive candidiasis as per prespecified definitions during ICU stay
- In addition, patients who had invasive candidiasis within 72 hours of ICU admission will be included
- Diagnosis of invasive candidiasis (definite or probable) more than 72 hours before ICU admission.
- Diagnosis of invasive candidiasis (definite or probable) within 72 hours of ICU admission, but the admission to ICU for an unrelated reason.
- Readmission to the ICU during the same hospitalization with invasive candidiasis occurring during one of the previous admissions.
