Ies show that frailty is associated with increased mortality so it is indeed interesting that this audit has shown no difference between the two groups.References 1. Rockwood, Song, McKnight.

Ver the age of 65. Interestingly, there is no significant difference between the non frail and frail groups of patients admitted to intensive care. This may be because of small sample size. The length of stay of the frail patient is shorter and this may be because as intensivists we are better at treatment limitation in this group of patients. No difference in overall mortality suggests that the p

Ly increasing. This audit aimed to look retrospectively at our admissions to Intensive Care, to categorise them into frail or non frail, and evaluate how frailty correlated with ICU length of stay and mortality Methods: A retrospective case note review of all patients admitted to Intensive Care over a six month period in the Victoria Infirmary and then Queen Elizabeth University hospital in Glasgo

Ared the frail population to the non-frail population. Results: Two hundred and eighty four patients were admitted to Intensive Care in this time period. Of those, 102 were over the age of 65 years. Of the 102 patients, 68patients were deemed to be frail, and 34 were deemed to be non-frail using the CFS. Approximately 40 of the patients admitted to Intensive Care are over the age of 65. There wa
