Why do we need an Indian critical care registry?
– Epidemiology of critical illness in India remains largely undefined
– Mortality rates are as high as 40-50% from critical illness depending on the severity of disease, location and type of Intensive care unit, access to health care and affordability
– Data is sparse on the geographical spread, resource availability, staffing patterns, case mix and outcomes for ICUs across India
– IRIS represents the first such endeavour in India
IRIS currently has 14 ICUs (including 1 pediatric ICU) and is rapidly expanding!
