One Year Outcome of Elderly Patients Admitted to an ICU and Mechanically Ventilated (SENIOREA)

This study has been completed.

Last verified: May 2017

Elderly patients are increasingly admitted in the Intensive Care Unit. Short-term outcome (e.g. hospital survival) of an ICU stay is improving in this population but little data have been published on long-term outcome. Beyond survival, outcome assessment in the elderly requires to evaluate several aspects of health: mental status, activity of daily living, pain, depression, frailty… referred by geriatrician as "comprehensive geriatric assessment' (CGA).

The purpose of the SENIOREA study is to evaluate one year outcome of elderly patients mechanically ventilated in the ICU by performing CGA one year after ICU admission. CGA will be performed on the patients' site of living.

This prospective multicentric trial will be conducted over 8 medico-surgical ICUs.

Elderly Care

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: One Year Outcome of Elderly Patients Admitted to an ICU and Mechanically Ventilated

Further study details as provided by University Hospital, Angers:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • One year outcome [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Survival and health status will be assessed using comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Predictors of one-year outcome [ Time Frame: one year ]

    The secondary assessment criteria as predictors of one year outcome will be researched among:

    • CGA on ICU entry (based on family interview)
    • Vitamin D blood concentration on ICU entry
    • SOFA and SAPSII score on ICU entry
    • Duration of organ dysfunction (ventilator support, renal replacement therapy, vasopressor)
    • ICU length of stay
