Increased MICU staffing can enhance patient survival and enable patients to breathe sooner without assistance, according to research published in Critical Care Medicine.

The researchers analyzed the files of patients in the Medical Intensive Care Unit at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore two years before and two years after a move from a 10-bed MICU to a 29-bed state-of-the-art facility.
