Pneumonia Severity Index (PORT Score)

Thorax, 64pp. Score taken at hospital admission. Multivariate analysis was performed by using a forward step-wise conditional logistic regression procedure considering all variables included in PORT-score as independent variables and mortality as the dependent variable. Although the PSI scoring system is a reliable tool for the prediction of severity clxsificacion is tedious to calculate because it considers 20 different variables.

The PSI Algorithm is detailed below. This cut-off point was considered according to previous studies CURB score 8. You can change the settings or obtain more information by clicking here.

The decision to admit a patient with CAP in medical wards or ICU may depend on subjective clinical views and peculiarities of the local healthcare setting and different studies have demonstrated that the establishment of valid criteria for re definition of severe pneumonia would provide a more reliable basis for improving patient risk assessment and therefore help physicians in their daily practice 2,5,6 The Pneumonia Patient Outcomes Research Team PORT 7 developed a prediction rule to neumohia patients with CAP who are at risk for death and other adverse outcomes Pneumonia Severity Index neumknia.

Ottawa Knee Rules Does this knee injury require an x-ray? From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The initial management decision of patients with CAP is to determine the site of care outpatients or hospitalization in a medical ward or ICU and this depends on the severity of the disease. Rockall Score Estimate risk of mortality after endoscopy for GI bleed.

Demographic and clinical characteristics of patients in high-risk PSI groups by age. Continuing navigation will be considered as acceptance of this use. Because of nemonia possible etiological differences between the three groups, distinct etiological tests and empiric antibiotic treatments will be required in each subgroup, although a possible pneumococcal etiology should always be considered, since Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most common etiology of CAP in all three groups.

Van der Eerden, R.
