Synergistic impact of low serum albumin on intensive care unit admission and high blood urea nitrogen during intensive care unit stay on post-intensive care unit mortality in critically ill elderly patients requiring mechanical ventilation
Geriatrics and Gerontology International, 06/14/2012
Pan SW et al. – Low serum albumin level on ICU admission and high blood urea nitrogen (BUN) level during ICU stay are two independent risk factors, especially their combination, of PI6M mortality in critically ill elderly patients requiring MV. Furthermore, patients with a reduction in high BUN have a better PI6M survival.
