Decision analysis models and simulations in critical care medicine.


Because clinical trials have frequently not been performed for many clinical problems in critical care and other clinical disciplines, models and simulations are often used to quantitatively assess important diagnostic, therapeutic, and cost-effectiveness issues. This article presents a brief overview of decision analysis models, one of the most common methodologies used to develop disease models and simulations, and their applications to problems in critical care medicine.
