Abstract

Outcome in the ICU is predominantly determined by initial management of patients. Early identification of the patient at risk of life-threatening illness is essential to manage them appropriately and prevent further deterioration. “Time is tissue” in critically ill patients, and a prompt and protocolized resuscitation regimen will help in salvaging these patients.
