Definition:

A clinical database which contains detailed clinical information about all adult ICU admissions in the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA). When it came into existence on July 11, 1988 it only included information from two ICUs at the Health Sciences Centre. From June 1, 1999 onwards, information from all adult ICUs within the WRHA have been included in the WICUDB. Six Winnipeg hospitals contain adult ICUs -- the Health Sciences Centre, St. Boniface General Hospital, Seven Oaks General Hospital, Concordia Hospital, Victoria General Hospital, and the Grace Hospital.
