This report is based on data from 18 Units in 15 hospitals which undertook 70% of all critical care activity in Health Service Executive (HSE)-funded hospitals during 2018. Units varied widely in numbers of beds, numbers of admissions, and in case mix on admission to the Unit. Some Units were High Dependency Units (HDUs), some were Intensive Care Units (ICUs), some were mixed ICU/HDU, and some were specialist Units (e.g. neurosurgical, cardiothoracic). Our data provide a detailed insight into the characteristics of each Unit and allow Units to benchmark themselves against comparable Units. In addition, the data allow comparisons between Units in Ireland and those in the United Kingdom (UK).
