Mobile intensive care units (ICUs) could provide the solution to an apparent need for high-tech emergency facilities in rural areas of Spain. A local initiative demanding access to a mobile intensive care unit (ICU) has brought the issue to the fore in the Spanish media. The pensioners' association of La Baneza, in the region of Leon, is heading the protest, following the death of a child four hours after it began to present with cardiorespiratory problems. Medical staff of a rural practice in Spain confirmed to Clinica the apparent extent of the problem.
