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

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. Validation of a predictive rule for the management of community-acquired pneumonia.

En este sentido, Capelastegui y cols. Mortalidad tratados fe de 4 horas: While many pneumonias are actually viral in nature, typical practice is to provide a course of antibiotics given the pneumonia may be bacterial. Our aim was to identify at first evaluation patients at increased risk of complicated evolution but considering a minimum of variables. It is estimated that in Spain between 1.

It takes care of a population of approximatelyindividuals.

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 a 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.

CURB does not assign points for co-morbid illness and nursing home residence, as the original study did account for many of these conditions.

Simpler criteria to assess mortality in CAP were identified. Simpler criteria are needed to evaluate risk of mortality in CAP.
