Because age is strongly associated with the decision to admit patients to the ICU and to withdraw life-sustaining treatments in the ICU, the relationships between age and other variables are confounded by these physician decisions. Similarly, associations between age and other variables may not reflect an effect of age, per se, but of other variables that are frequently associated with age. For example, while age is crudely associated with mortality in many studies of critical illness, the effect disappears or is mitigated when comorbidities are accounted for (58).
