Altered mental status was defined as disorientation to person, place or time. Observational study of patients with CAP admitted to a tertiary care university hospital. Pneumonia severity index CURB Hospitalized Community-Acquired Pneumonia in the elderly. The rule uses demographics whether someone is older, and is male or femalethe coexistence of co-morbid illnesses, findings on physical examination and vital signsand essential laboratory findings.

Mortalidad tratados antes de 4 horas: 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. In our series similar simpler criteria to assess mortality in patients with CAP were identified. N Engl J Med.

PSI/PORT Score: Pneumonia Severity Index for CAP – MDCalc

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. Simple criteria to assess mortality in patients with community-acquired pneumonia.


The etiology of pneumonia was considered definitive if one of the following criteria was met: Creating an account is d, easy, and takes about 60 seconds. However, this score considers too many variables. Continuing navigation will be considered as acceptance of this use.

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. It can facilitate better utilization of resources and treatment initiation.

Evaluation of SIRS criteria would be beneficial. The PSI Algorithm is detailed below. The purpose of the PSI is to classify the severity of a patient’s pneumonia to determine the amount of resources to be allocated for care.

Mean hospitalization stay was calculated excluding patients who died to avoid artificial low stays in more severe patients. Most commonly, the PSI scoring system has been used to decide whether patients with pneumonia can be treated as outpatients or as hospitalized inpatients. Prospective comparison of three validated prediction rules for prognosis in community-acquired pneumonia.

CURB Score for Pneumonia Severity – MDCalc

Mortality similar following strict guidelines or variant. This was then validated on inpatients and additionally another inpatients and outpatients. A subanalysis of patients by age criterlos cut-off: Subcategory of ‘Diagnosis’ designed to be very sensitive Rule Out. There were no other exclusion criteria.


The PSI stratifies patients on the basis of 20 variables to which points are assigned into criterils and higher risk of short-term mortality and links this quantification of illness severity to an appropriate level of outpatient treatment Fine I and IIbrief inpatient observation Fine III or more traditional inpatient therapy Fine IV and V.

Since points are assigned by absolute age in the PSI, it may underestimate severe pneumonia in an otherwise neumoniia healthy patient.

Retrospective study of all the patients above 80 years admitted into the Hospital in with the main diagnosis of Pneumonia. Simpler criteria to assess mortality in CAP were identified.

Reaching stability in Jeumonia Pneumonia: En el estudio de Kaplan y cols. Any patient over 50 years of age is automatically classified as risk class 2, even if they otherwise are completely healthy and have no other risk criteria. For patients scoring high on PSI, it would be prudent to ensure initial triage has not missed the presence of sepsis. The most recent modification of the BTS 8 criteria includes 5 easily measurable factors One or two coexisting conditions were present in
