ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which examined the distribution and attributes of intensive care services in Australia and New Zealand for the financial year 2005-2006, based on surveys conducted by the Centre for Outcomes and Resource Evaluation. About 56.3% of intensive care units (ICU) in Australia were categorized as general. Admissions in Australia and New Zealand reached 140,444 and 22,791, respectively. Also mentioned is the lack of accepted guidelines in neither of the countries for the number of intensive care beds required for a population.
