Conference Presentation: Association of Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment With ICU Admission Among Patients Hospitalized Near the End of Life

In a 2020 randomized trial involving patients who had physician orders for life-sustaining treatment (POLSTs) and who were hospitalized near the end of life, treatment-limiting POLSTs were associated with lower rates of ICU admission vs full-treatment POLSTs, but 38% of patients with treatment-limiting POLSTs still received intensive care potentially discordant with their POLST. Robert Y. Lee, MD, MS (@BobLeeMD), of the University of Washington in Seattle presents the study’s findings at the 48th Critical Care Congress of the Society for Critical Care Medicin (SCCM) on February 16, 2020, in Orlando, Florida.
