Background: The number of intensive care patients aged ≥ 80 years (Very old Intensive Care Patients; VIPs) is growing. VIPs have high mortality and morbidity and the benefits of ICU admission are frequently questioned. Sepsis incidence has risen in recent years and identification of outcomes is of considerable public importance. We aimed to determi...

... adjustment for age, frailty, gender, and SOFA score, sepsis had no effect on survival after ICU admission [HR: 0.99 (95% CI 0.86-1.15), p = 0.917] (Table 2A). Inverse-probability weight (IPW)-adjusted survival curves for the first 30 days after ICU admission were similar for septic and non-septic patients [HR: 1.00 (95% CI 0.87-1.17), p = 0.947] (Fig. ...

... 30-day survival in the matched sample (443 septic patients vs. 824 patients without sepsis, 62 patients had only one match and 55 could not be matched- Table 3) was similar in septic and non-septic VIPs [57.2% (95% CI 52.7-60.7) vs. 57.1% (95% CI 53.7-60.1); HR: 1.02 (95% CI 0.85-1.22), p = 0.854] (Fig. ...
