Aims and objectives: To study clinical profile of obstetric patients admitted to intensive care unit (ICU) and to analyze the relation of demographic factors such as age, parity, literacy level, socioeconomic status, acute physiology and chronic health evaluation II (APACHE II) score, and level of delay with fetomaternal outcome. Design: It is a prospective cross-sectional observational study. Materials and methods: After admission to ICU a detailed history, analysis of basic demographic variables along with level of delay was done. APACHE II score was calculated. These parameters were correlated with fetomaternal outcome. The Chi-squared test was used to compare categorical variables. The one-way analysis of variance was used to compare the continuous variables among the strata with Tukey's post hoc test. Results: Incidence of obstetric ICU admission was 0.77%. Mean age was 26.03 years. Most common indication of ICU admission was obstetrical hemorrhage (37.1%) followed by hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (25.8%). Type I delay was the most common followed by type II delay. Mean APACHE II score was 14.77 ± 6.85. Observed mortality rate (30.6%) was found to be higher than predicted mortality rate (25%). APACHE II score was significantly high in the presence of level 1 (p = 0.003) and level 2 delays (p = 0.0001). Also, it was significantly increased with the duration of delays. Conclusion: Unbooked and referred cases had high incidence of ICU admission. The presence of delay was associated with poor outcome.
