CAP will continue to represent an important threat to patients as the number of patients at risk people with comorbid conditions and elderly ones increases Pleural effusion on x-ray.

Pneumonia severity index

Although the PSI was initially developed as a prediction rule to identify patients who were at low risk for mortality, different studies have shown that its implementation in the Emergency Departments increased the outpatient treatment rates nemuonia patients at low risk without compromising their safety.

Continuing navigation will criteeios considered as acceptance of this use. The site-of-care home or hospital greatly determines the extensiveness of the diagnostic evaluation, the route of antimicrobial therapy and the economical cost. Diagn Microbiol Infect Dis, 61pp.

The most recent modification of the Crtierios 8 criteria includes 5 easily measurable factors This categorization method has been replicated by others [7] and is comparable to the CURB in predicting mortality.

Van der Eerden, R. Chest,pp. However, this score considers too many variables. ERS Guidelines for the management of adult lower respiratory tract infections.

Pneumonia Severity Index (PORT Score)

Simpler criteria are needed to evaluate risk of mortality in CAP. Norasept II Study Investigators. N Engl J Med. N Engl J Med. Because of the 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.


All statistical values were calculated using the SPSS From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Systolic blood pressure No. Quantification Volumetric Cardiology MS: About the Creator Michael J. Thorax, 59pp. These results validate the PSI as a prediction rule that accurately identifies in our series CAP patients with low or high severity and mortality risk. In our institution, the Emergency Critwrios does not use the PSI for plrt the site-of treatment decision. Mean hospitalization stay was calculated excluding patients who died to avoid artificial low stays in more severe patients.

De la Bellacasa, R. Si continua navegando, consideramos que acepta su uso. Patient’s clinical records were assessed until in-hospital death or discharge.

Eur Respir J, 35pp. Since points are assigned by absolute age in the PSI, it may underestimate severe pneumonia in an otherwise young healthy neumonis.

Smoldering Multiple Myeloma Prognosis Determine risk of progression to symptomatic multiple myeloma. Views Read Edit View history.

Forrest Classification Estimate risk of re-bleeding post-endoscopy for upper GI bleeding. This cut-off point was considered according to previous studies CURB score Early identification of porh sickest patients or those with higher risk of complications may allow neukonia earlier intervention, hence potentially improve outcomes A cohort of patients with CAP was studied.

The purpose of our study was to describe the population of patients with CAP admitted at a hospital where the Emergency Department does not use the PSI for guiding the site-of treatment decision. Observational- retrospective study of clinical records of patients with CAP admitted to our hospital from January to December A prospective validation is required to assess the generalization of these findings. Our aim was to identify at first evaluation patients at increased risk of complicated evolution but considering a minimum of variables.


Although the PSI scoring system is a reliable tool for the prediction lara severity it is tedious to calculate because it considers 20 different variables. Numerical inputs and outputs Formula. Patients at low risk for death treated in the outpatient setting are able to resume normal activity sooner and many of them also prefer outpatient therapy 2.

A subanalysis of patients by age group cut-off: Clin Infect Dis, 38pp. The pneumonia severity index PSI or PORT Score is a clinical prediction rule that medical practitioners can use to calculate the probability of morbidity and mortality among patients with community acquired pneumonia. The rule was derived then validated with data from 38, patients from the MedisGroup Cohort Study forcomprising 1 year of data from hospitals across the US who used the MedisGroup patient outcome tracking software built and serviced by Mediqual Systems Cardinal Health.

In our institution, the Emergency Department does not use the PSI for guiding the site-of treatment decision. CT Severity Index Pancreatitis Predict complication and mortality rate in pancreatitis, based on CT findings Balthazar score Expected spleen size Provides upper limit of normal for spleen length and volume by ultrasound relative to body height and gender.

Epidemiology of community-acquired pneumonia in adults; a population-based study. Consider sepsis in patients with pneumonia; the PSI was developed prior to aggressive sepsis screening with lactate testing.
