Every year, more than 167,000 people, including 10,000 babies and children, are admitted to 207 Intensive Care Units across Australia and New Zealand.
Intensive Care teams care for people critically ill with serious illnesses and injuries such as: severe heart attack; pneumonia; stroke; road accidents; burns; trauma; organ transplants and complicated surgery. The need for intensive care can arise for anyone in the community, at any time, irrespective of age or state of health.
Every year the Intensive Care Foundation funds grants for essential and ongoing clinical research aimed at improving the care and treatment of critically ill patients.
Every year, we receive many more worthy research grant applications than we are able to fund.
Your donation will directly support research by helping us fund more potentially life-saving research projects.
Importantly, your donation will not be used to pay for administration or office overheads.
