In this data note we provide the details of a research database of 4831 adult intensive care patients who were treated in the Bristol Royal Infirmary, UK between 2015 and 2019. The purposes of this publication are to describe the dataset for external researchers who may be interested in making use of it, and to detail the methods used to curate the dataset in order to help other intensive care units make secondary use of their routinely collected data. The curation involves linkage between two critical care datasets within our hospital and the accompanying code is available online. For reasons of data privacy the data cannot be shared without researchers obtaining appropriate ethical consents. In the future we hope to obtain a data sharing agreement in order to publicly share the de-identified data, and to link our data with other intensive care units who use a Philips clinical information system.
