Se resalta la seguridad como soporte que brinda tranquilidad al familiar por la percepcion que tiene del equipo humano que cuida a su ser querido, y por el apoyo tecnologico de la UCI, esto es igual a lo encontrado por McKiernan y McCarthy en Irlanda (33) y difiere por el contrario de la literatura ya que la seguridad es contemplada como una necesidad y no como un soporte en los diferentes estudios que aplican el inventario de necesidades CCFNI (Critical Care Family Needs Inventory) de Molter.
