ALVAREZ FIGUEREDO, Zoraida; IRAOLA FERRER, Marcos D; MOLINA DIAZ, Félix  e  BARCO DIAZ, Vladimir. Caracterización de la mortalidad en la unidad de cuidados intensivos: Año 1998. Rev cubana med [online]. 2000, vol.39, n.4, pp.222-227. ISSN 0034-7523.

A retrospective descriptive study of patients who died in 1998, with the objective of characterizing mortality in the intensive care units of «Dr Gustavo Aldereguía Lima» University Hospital in Cienfuegos was performed. The required data were taken from the monthly report by the In-hospital Mortality Analysis Committee. It was observed that the average age of dead patients was 52,50 ± 21,28 years, most of the patients came from both emergency medical services (49%) and the surgery room (25.5%) and that medical admissions exceeded surgical ones. Average stay length was 6.53± 9.82 days. The main cause of death was found to be acute myocardial infarction (27.6%) followed by trauma ( 18.32%). There was a complete clinical and pathological concordance in 71.6% of the dead people. It was proved that lethality of patients who died from trombolized acute myocardial infarction was 8% and that of the non-trombolized one was 26%; whereas lethality of head trauma with or without multiple injuries was 62.5% and that of multiple injuries without head trauma was 8.5%
