Our aim was to identify at neumonua evaluation patients at increased risk of complicated evolution but considering a minimum of variables.

Rapid antibiotic delivery and appropiate antibiotic selection reduce length of Hospital stay of patients with Community-Acquired Pneumonia. Calc Function Calcs that help predict probability of a disease Diagnosis. Hospitalized Community-Acquired Crriterios in the elderly. The CURB scores range from 0 to 5.

Mean hospitalization stays by PORT-groups. This cut-off point was considered according to previous studies CURB score 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. Women died at Risk factors of treatment failure in community acquired pneumonia: 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 Mortality similar fnie strict guidelines or variant.

Neumonía en el anciano mayor de 80 años con ingreso hospitalario

CURB does not assign points for co-morbid illness and nursing home residence, as the original study did account for many of these conditions. Should SOAR systolic blood pressure, oxygenation, age and respiratory rate criteria be used in older people? Most commonly, the PSI scoring pqra has been used to decide whether patients with pneumonia can be treated as outpatients or as hospitalized inpatients.


Norasept II Study Investigators. There is a need for simpler prognostic models to guide the site-of-care decision to ensure that as many patients as possible are treated on an ambulatory basis and to identify those at high risk of mortality.

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 of patients at low risk without compromising their safety. The PSI stratifies patients on the basis of 20 variables to which points are assigned into low 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.

La variable dependiente estudiada fue la mortalidad al alta. Our aim was to identify at first evaluation patients at increased risk of complicated evolution but considering a minimum of variables.

One significant caveat to the data source was that patients who were discharged home or transferred from the MedisGroup hospitals could not be followed at the day mark, and were therefore assumed to be “alive” at that time.

Arch Intern Med ; This categorization method has been replicated by others [7] and is comparable to the CURB in predicting mortality. The CURB Score includes points for confusion and blood urea nitrogen, which in the acutely ill elderly patient, could be due to a variety of factors.

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 2. Means of continuous variables were compared by using two-tailed Student’s unpaired t-test and analysis of the variance ANOVA.

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.

Views Read Edit View history. Clinical, laboratory and radiological features at presentation as well as other epidemiological data were entered in a computer database.

Pneumonia severity index

Hay posibilidad de mejora de calidad en estos procesos. A prediction finw to identify low-risk patients with community-acquired pneumonia.

Arch Bronconeumol ; Validation Shah BA, et. Critical Actions For patients scoring high on PSI, it would be prudent to ensure initial triage has not missed the presence of sepsis.

CURB Score for Pneumonia Severity – MDCalc

Consider sepsis in patients with pneumonia; the PSI was developed prior to aggressive sepsis screening with neumobia testing. Formula Addition of selected points, as above. Pleural puncture, transthoracic needle puncture, tracheobronchial aspiration in mechanically ventilated patients and protected specimen brush PSB or bronchoalveolar lavage BAL sampling were performed according to clinical indication or judgement of the attending physician.

About the Creator Dr. Defining community acquired pneumonia severity on presentation to hospital: 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. This was then validated on inpatients and additionally another inpatients and outpatients. Sputum culture Bronchoalveolar lavage.
