Globally, critical illness results in millions of deaths every year. Although many of these deaths are potentially preventable, the basic, life-saving care of critically ill patients is often overlooked in health systems. Essential Emergency and Critical Care (EECC) has been devised as the care that should be provided to all critically ill patients in all hospitals in the world. EECC includes effective, low-cost and low-complexity care for the identification and treatment of critically ill patients across all medical specialties. The content of EECC has recently been specified in a global consensus process. Implementing EECC could be an effective and cost-effective strategy for policy-makers, hospital managers and clinicians to reduce preventable deaths worldwide.
