28 * COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; CRF, chronic respiratory failure; IS, immunosuppressive therapy; ICU, intensive care unit; SAPS II
, simplified acute physiology score II.
The means SAPS II
, APACHE II, LODS and SOFA scores were 35 (SD [+ or -] 11.
We used APACHE III (15), APACHE II (16) and SAPS II
(17) methodology in order to accurately predict hospital mortality for critically ill patients.
Results: Groups were similar in age, gender, cause of respiratory failure, amount of MV support required, arterial blood gases, PaO2/FiO2 ratio, dynamic lung compliance, lung resistance, prealbumin, smoking history and SAPS II
score upon starting treatment.
AUCs in predicting ICU mortality were slightly higher for the first-day maximum lactate value and SAPS II
Data necessary for the calculation of TISS-28, TISS-76 and SAPS II
were recorded for each patient in the ICU at 24 and 48 hours after admission.
Multiple regression analysis was done to relate oxidative stress markers with patient characteristics, SAPS II
, and SOFA score at ICU admission and ICU LOS and mortality, and the relationships between D-ROMs and F- or T-MDA and between F- and T-MDA were analyzed by Spearman rank-order correlation.
From January 2004 to December 2009, 215 patients received iNO, with a mean age of 52 years (95% CI 50 to 55), APACHE II score of 27 (95% CI 26 to 28) and SAPS II
score of 54 (95% CI 51 to 56).
For our clinical findings, we studied 17 patients with septic shock (mean age, 58 years; 13 males and 4 females) with a mean SAPS II
admission score of 48 (range, 32-89) and a global mortality of 47%.
The data collected included age, gender, illness severity using SAPS II
score, diagnostic category (medical, surgical and trauma) on ICU admission.
ICIS Web Allows medical team members to observe the status of one, some or all patients on a floor or unit and be immediately alerted to those who may be deteriorating based on critical scoring systems such as Glycemia, MEWS, SAPS II
, and APACHE II via any computer with an Internet connection and web browser.
9 (median=5) and mean value of SAPS II
scores (in 49 out of 50 patients available) was 26.
