DELGADO, Walter; ALONSO, Raúl; SALA, Christian  y  VEGA, Evanhy. Characterization of elective surgery post-operative patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the Hospital de Clínicas. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2021, vol.19, n.1, pp.86-91. ISSN 1812-9528.  https://doi.org/10.18004/mem.iics/1812-9528/2021.019.01.86.

The admission to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a post-operative patient is to optimize clinical status by correcting disorders related to surgical stress and intraoperative complications. The objective of the study was to characterize the post-operated patients who entered to the ICU. An observational, descriptive, cross-sectional study was conducted in 163 post-operative patients of elective surgeries that entered ICU. The sample represented the 4.6% of elective surgeries, 94.5% was planned admissions and 5.5% unexpected. Within the expected cases (n-154), 68% entered stable and extubated for monitoring, 19% for hemodynamic instability and 13% for impossibility of extubation. The average number of days of ICU internment were 4 ± 3 days and seven patients died (4,3%). In conclusion, a high frequency of expected admissions was found. Most of them were for postoperative monitoring by the size of the surgery or by the patient's comorbidity. Most patients entered hemodynamically stable and extubated. The services that required most admittances were General Surgery and Neurosurgery. The average hospitalization time were 4 days and mortality was 4.3%.
