The Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS), India, has released guidelines for intensive care unit (ICU) admission and discharge [1] to guide intensivists and registered medical practitioners (RMPs) in an Expert Consensus Statement (ECS). This is based on the recommendations of 24 experts working in different ICU settings. This team deserves applause for their efforts in creating guidelines for clinicians working in ICU settings. The Delphi method [2], considered one of the most scientific methods for such statements, has been used for this ECS.
