Translated title:
Visibility syndrome and prognostic value in elderly patients in ICU
Summary:
Introduction: Frailty Syndrome (FS) is a common clinical syndrome that occurs in older
adults and carries an increased risk of adverse health effects such as falls, disability, longterm
hospitalization and mortality.
Objectives: The purpose of this review is to investigate the Frailty syndrome and its
prognostic value in elderly patients in the ICU.
Materialand methods: Articles from the international bibliography were searched through
the online platform PubMed for the review. The search for the articles took place in the
period March-April 2021. The keywords used in the search were in English and
specifically, "Frailty Syndrome", "elderly", "patients", "ICU" individually or in
combination. The inclusion criteria concerned research on this syndrome from 2010 until
today. The study exclusion criteria concerned research prior to 2010 and in a language
other than English.
Results: Various recent studies show that Frailty Syndrome is a prognostic indicator and
leads to mortality and complications in elderly patients in the ICU. In particular, patients
with Frailty Syndrome are twice as likely as patients without the syndrome to have
complications in the ICU, to stay longer in the ICU and in the hospital while experiencing
increased mortality.
Conclusions: Patients who develop Frailty Syndrome have a higher risk of mortality,
longer stay in the ICU and hospital and more complications than patients who do not
develop this syndrome.
