About five percent of those patients were subsequently transferred to an intensive-care unit (4,107) or experienced an in-hospital cardiac arrest (179). Patients who had a cardiac arrest Ta or required ICU transfer tended to be a few years older and male. They had been in the hospital, see on average, for 13 days, four times longer than patients who did not have a critical-illness event. “We suspected this phenomenon based on our own anecdotal experience,” said co-author Samuel Volchenboum, MD, PhD, associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Chicago and director of the University’s Center for Research Informatics. “But until we had access ta to a large, well-curated research-data warehouse, we couldn’t perform a study like this.” “Very few academic centers have access to the kinds of high-quality data needed to perform this type of investigation,” he added. The study was designed to detect and quantify any increased risk to neighboring patients. The researchers speculate that one potential factor may be that doctors and nurses could have been “temporarily diverted to help care for critically ill patients,” Volchenboum said. “Further study is needed to determine the causes of this effect.” ### The study was funded by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute. Additional authors were Anoop Mayampurath, Gozde Goksu-Gursoy, Dana P.
