Hispanic patients are twice as likely to die from respiratory failure compared to non-Hispanic patients 

PRECIPICE aims to identify the mechanisms of these disparities and promote equitable outcomes for Hispanic patients with respiratory failure through changes in intensive care unit (ICU) practice

"Respiratory failure is common, deadly, and disabling"


Americans die each year of respiratory failure


Survivors experience poor physical function and quality of life persisting five years after discharge


Hispanic individuals experience respiratory failure each year
