MEDEIROS, Jenifer dos Santos  e  OLIVEIRA, Cristiane Bernardes de. Pharmacotherapeutic Profile in Inpatients at an Adult Intensive Care Center of a University Hospital. Aletheia [online]. 2021, vol.54, n.2, pp. 95-103. ISSN 1413-0394.

ABSTRACT This work is a retrospective descriptive observational study, with an analysis of quantitative data from April to July 2019 at the University Hospital of Canoas. 419 prescriptions and patient data were evaluated regarding sex, age, previous pathologies, routes of administration, and most prescribed drugs in the ICU. For analysis, a Data Collection Instrument was elaborated, in which they were transferred to a Microsoft Excel software spreadsheet for frequency analysis. The results found were that most of the patients were male (59%), aged 40 to 69 years (47%). The most frequent pathologies were Arterial Hypertension (31%), Diabetes Mellitus (18%), and others such as bacterial infections, fractures, or cardiac surgery (46%). The most widely used route of administration was the parenteral route (63%). The most prescribed drugs were analgesics/antipyretics (n = 175), narcotic analgesics (n = 126) and antiemetics (n = 126). Characterizing the pharmacotherapeutic profile allowed to determine prescription evaluation strategies and propose the clinical pharmacy service to contribute to the knowledge of other professionals related to medicines.
