Secombe P, Brown A, Bailey M, et al. Characteristics and outcomes of patients admitted to regional and rural intensive care units in Australia. Crit Care Resusc 2020; 22: 335-43. doi: 10.51893/2020.4.OA6.

 

In this article, on page 338, the heading in the third column of Table 1 is incorrect. Instead of “Rural (6 contributing ICUs)”, it should read “Rural (36 contributing ICUs)”.
 

In addition, on page 339, the last sentence in the left column should read “There is some emerging evidence of this, albeit mostly in small single centre observational studies, seemingly suggesting that once admitted to an ICU mortality equivalence exists”. On the same page, the first sentence of the last paragraph in the right column should read “The higher frequency of emergency admissions to both regional/rural and metropolitan ICUs are thought to reflect the rates of high risk elective surgery undertaken in tertiary centres (predominantly elective cardiac surgery), and the relatively lower rate of elective post-operative admission diagnosis probably also contributed to the lower rates of mechanical ventilation in both regional/rural and metropolitan ICUs”.
