Aim: Postoperative patients, particularly the elderly, might have high hospital mortality rates. A multidisciplinary approach can decrease the mortality rate in this patient population and offer high quality intensive care. The aim of this study was to evaluate the general characteristics and outcome of surgical and trauma patients followed in a medical intensive care unit (MICU).
