Resumo

LARA, Bárbara A et al. The impact of a better coordination between emergency and intensive care units in the care of critically ill patients. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2016, vol.144, n.7, pp.911-917. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872016000700014.

The need for critical care services is increasing in Chile. Critical care beds and specialists in this area are scarce. In this article we discuss some aspects that hamper the care of critically ill patients from their arrival to the emergency department to their transfer to the ICU. Special emphasis is given to system saturation and its multiple causes. The benefits of an integrative approach between emergency medicine and critical care specialists are highlighted and some solutions are proposed to strengthen this partnership.

Palavras-chave : Critical Care; Emergency Medicine; Emergency Service; Hospital; Hospital Organization and administration.
