Studies show women less likely to be treated in intensive care

Research suggests women are getting the short end of the stick when it comes to treatment in intensive care units.

Dr. Donna Stewart, a university professor and chair of women's health at the University Health Network in Toronto and at the University of Toronto, said several studies, including one Wednesday by the Canadian Medical Association Journal, show there was a wide disparity.

"One is really struck by a huge disparity between the care that women and men are getting for critical illnesses and this is in keeping with many other studies that have been done in the past," Stewart said Thursday
