VIP2 study

Overview of the VIP2 study (POETICS2 in UK)

VIP2 stands for Very old Intensive Care Patients study 2.
An ESICM supported study conducted from the HSRO & NAHP section in ESICM. registration. Follow the VIP2-project on ResearchGate.
The VIP2-study was called the POETICS2 study in Great Britain.

Background and scope
This study sought to develop a prognostic score for specifically very old, critically ill patients  defined as patients ≥ 80 years). This was a large, prospective, multinational, multicentre study. We gathered age-specific information about the elderly patient: frailty, cognitive function, activity of daily life and co-morbidity, in addition to organ failure score. Outcomes were registered as outcome at 30 days (alive or dead) and 6 months in a sub-study. Also, an Frailty score interrater variability was recorded in a sub-study.

Recruitment of patients
The goal was to recruit 20 consecutive ICU patients ≥ 80 years, or continue for a 6 months period. Based on a previous multicentre study (the VIP1) we hoped to recruit 200-250 ICUs and 4000-5000 patients.
