Indian Intensive Care Case Mix and Practice Patterns Study 2018
(INDICAPS - II)

In INDICAPS II, we plan to collect data of all patients in the ICU on one particular day, and four such days spread throughout a one-year period. The following days have been selected:

August 23, 2018; October 25, 2018; December 13, 2018; April 11, 2019. You may choose to participate on all four days, or any number of days of the study

October 25 is ISCCM INDICAPS-II Second Data collection day!

The first day of INDICAPS-II, August 23, 2018, was a great success. Over 140 ICUs have given data on ICUs and patients, and we now have data from more than 1650 patients! Thank you all for your participation and co-operation.

INDICAPS-II is the second large scale, multicentre survey launched and sponsored by the Indian Society of Critical Care Medicine. We aim to gather information about ICUs, patients in ICUs, the types and severity of illness, monitoring and therapeutic modalities used, types of infections, etc. We hope to enroll as many ICUs all over the country as possible, and, therefore, invite you all to participate.
