Intensive care in a developing country: a review of the first 100 cases.

By A. Oji

Abstract

The role of an intensive care unit with regard to patient care and manpower training in a developing country was considered from an analysis of the first 100 admissions to the unit. The organisation and facilities available are outlined. The majority of cases admitted were post-surgical but the best results were achieved in training the nursing and medical staff to manage peritoneal dialysis and patients with eclampsia. Despite the lack of equipment and investigative facilities the overall mortality was 30%
