Does gender influence outcomes in critically ill patients?

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Investigators continue to debate whether gender plays any role in patient outcome following injury/critical illness. We submit that age and hormonal milieu at the time of injury, rather than gender, are the critical factors influencing patient outcome under those conditions. © 2012 BioMed Central Ltd.
