Data on the outcome of intensive care for patients with AIDS have been reported since 1984. Most published statistics focus on the outcome of respiratory failure due to Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, the most frequent reason for admission to the ICU. Survival appears to be improving in recent years, partly due to the use of adjunctive corticosteroid therapy.
