Paper Abstract

The ratio of significant findings to `no significant change' on AP chest x-rays in the ICU environment has been investigated. We reviewed 2,162 cases in seven of our ICUs as a function of type of ICU and acquisition time. The results of this preliminary study clearly indicate that the ratio of significant observations per procedure which may have an impact on patient management increases significantly in the `non-morning round.'
