Hospital-level variation in ICU admission and critical care procedures for patients hospitalized for pulmonary embolism.
The researchers examined the relationship between intensive care unit (ICU) use for patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) and cost, mortality, readmission, and procedure use in 263 hospitals. They found wide variations in ICU admission rates for acute PE without a detectable impact on mortality, cost, or readmission.
