The document in progress is intended to help the health care professionals in bioethical decision-making process in ICU. It will be probably written as “Recommendations” because it is a conceptual framework for making decision about intensive care, consensually derived from an Ad Hoc Sub-Committee of SIAARTI Ethics Committee. These guidelines can, however, be considered as general principles and not as specific instructions. These guidelines do not relieve health care professionals involved from their personal responsibility for decisions and action taken in individual cases. These guidelines are in line with the general ethical principles for the care of critically ill patients as formulated, as examples, in the following declarations and deontological codes: Declaration of Helsinki, Ethical Principles in Intensive Care (World Federation of Society of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine), Italian Medical Association’s Deontological Code (3/10/98), European Convention of Bioethics — Oviedo and in many others international consensus statements and guidelines.
