DISCLAIMER: Here we report the analysis of information recorded by users in hospitals participating in the Brazilian ICUs project. These results do not substitute the official statistics reported by the Ministry of Health and other governmental agencies.

The participating ICUs collect data through the Epimed Monitor System that use structured data with specific definitions and guidelines to allow proper registration. However, neither Epimed Solutions nor the Brazilian Association in Intensive Care – AMIB – is not responsible for the accuracy of the recorded data and there may be also a relative delay in data updates in some hospitals.
