Many hospitals in Latin America are greatly interested in the idea of providing better care for critical cases with the help of intensive care units. A number of hospitals have already set up such services, and many others have plans to do so in the near future. The purpose of this article is to explain certain fundamentals connected with the planning and operation of intensive care units, based on the experience acquired by PAHO in the course of a project designed to study the application of progressive patient care to the organization of hospital services.
