Brief Summary:

Background: This study assessed perioperative factors associated with planned and unplanned postoperative ICU admission and evaluated the outcome of the two groups. There are limited researches evaluating these factors. Hence, it is important to do an audit that assesses the perioperative factors to help creating a criteria for postoperative ICU admissions.

Materials and methods: This retrospective study evaluated medical records of 68 patients above 18 years between January'2016- December'2018 that were admitted to ICU postoperatively in Sultan Qaboos University hospital in Oman. Both planned and unplanned admissions were assessed who underwent elective as well as emergency surgeries. Neurologic and cardiothoracic surgeries were excluded. Data collected included patient's demographics, social status like smoking, ASA physical status (American Society of Anesthesiologists), associated comorbidities, other perioperative factors and investigations, surgical and anesthesia details were recorded. The primary outcome studied was reasons of admission for planned versus unplanned postoperative ICU admissions. The secondary outcomes included mortality outcome and length of stay in ICU.

Actual Enrollment : 68 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Reasons and Outcomes of Direct Admission of Surgical Patients to ICU: A Three Years Retrospective Study at University Hospital
Actual Study Start Date : July 1, 2019
Actual Primary Completion Date : October 31, 2019
Actual Study Completion Date : June 30, 2020

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Planned ICU admission
Cases who were planned for postoperative ICU admission at the time of preanesthetic check up
Procedure: Surgical procedure under anesthesia
Different varieties of surgical procedures done under anesthesia

Unplanned ICU admission
Cases who got admitted to ICU postoperatively without anticipation
Procedure: Surgical procedure under anesthesia
Different varieties of surgical procedures done under anesthesia

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Reasons of admission for postoperative ICU patients. [ Time Frame: 1-2 days ]
    Study of main reasons of ICU admissions directly from operating room. The reasons like type of surgery, ASA grading, preoperative functional status, co-morbidities: diabetes, hypertension, ischemic heart disease etc, intraoperative events like hemodynamic instability/shock, respiratory compromise, prolonged duration of surgery and other anesthesia complications will be studied as reasons of admission for planned versus unplanned ICU admissions for postoperative patients.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. ICU length of stay [ Time Frame: 1-30 days ]
  2. Mortality [ Time Frame: 1-45 days ]
    Postoperative mortality
