ABSTRACT
This is a mortality study in internal medicine wards of Amir-Alam Hospital, since the beginning of 1374 to end of 1376. Here, we reviewed, prevalence of disease lead to death, the ward and invasive interventions and duration of admission of patients before death. In this study, records of 85 patients were reviewed. 68.2% of patients were men and 31.8% women. Mean of age was 61.6% with minimum of 18 and maximum 95 years. The most prevalent diseases leading to death were cardio vascular (41.2%), cancer 29.4%, GI tract diseases (10.6%), pulmonary diseases (8.3%), CNS (7.1%), hemathologic (4.7%), DM (3.5%). Mean duration of stay in hospital before death was 6.6 days (max 30-min 1). This figure in different wards were: ward 1 (7 days), ward 2 (11 days), ward 3 (5.9 days) ICU (5 days) and CCU (4.7 days). 90.5% of patients died due to their diagnosed illnesses. Invasive tests and intervations were performed in 40% of them. As a whole 35 patient were died in CCU.
