The Intensive Care Appeal is a major community fundraising effort, aimed at increasing intensive care survival rates by raising funds to support vital medical research into four key areas - lung injury, traumatic brain injury, infection and prevention. The ultimate goal is to increase our already-excellent record of 85% survival by an extra 3000 patients a year. That's like saving the combined road toll of Australia and New Zealand. But research and practice improvement will help us do even better.
Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Units have produced excellent internationally recognised research, which has demonstrated the quality of ICU practice and the skills of those producing the research.
Serious intensive care research can only be conducted with the participation of a large number of closely acting intensive care units and with adequate financial support. We have the former and the Foundation will achieve the latter with help from your donations.If you wish to make a telephone donation, please call the Foundation office in Australia +61 3 9340 3444.
