Title: Challenges of Critical Care Medicine in Resource Limited Environment
Author: Schmutzhard, Erich
Abstract: WHO based epidemiological reports list cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, cancer, trauma, tuberculosis and other infectious diseases as being mainly responsible for the major part of the global burden of disease. However, no reliable international comparative epidemiologic data exist on critical illness syndromes such as acute lung injury, sepsis syndrome, multiorgan dysfunction or increased intracranial pressure, all of them being potentially the consequence of these above quoted diseases. Reported data are unreliable due to several fundamental challenges.
