We also collected the patients' Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) III score, APACHE II score and Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS) II, and followed up all patients to calculate length of stay in the ICU and to measure hospital mortality.
A new Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS II) based on a European/North American multicenter study.
Many study variables were analyzed, including age, diagnosis, length of stay, Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS-II) (14), Sequential Organ Dysfunction Score (SOFA-II) (21), ICU mortality rate, hospital mortality rate, and Glasgow Coma Score.
Using the Finnish intensive care quality consortium's database (Intensium), we collected and stored the following patient information: demographic data; diagnosis by International Classification of Diseases, 10th edition; Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS) II (22); Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) II score (23); and ICU and hospital mortality.
The Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS) was an independent attempt at simplification that reportedly attained results roughly comparable to APACHE II.
The Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS) 3 and Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score at the time of ICU admission were calculated to assess the severity of illness.
5) Need for mechanical ventilation, n (%) 65 (55) SOFA score, median (range) 12 (9-14) SAPS 3, median (range) 80 (69-92) ICU mortality, n (%) 43 (36) Length of ICU stay, median (IQR) days 4 (2-9) In-hospital mortality, n (%) 57 (48) Length of hospital stay, median (IQR) days 19 (12-32) IQR=interquartile range, SOFA=Sequential Organ Failure Assessment, SAPS = Simplified Acute Physiology Score, ICU=intensive care unit.
Patient characteristics, diagnoses, Simplified Acute Physiology Score II (SAPS II) (13), and Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score (14) were recorded at ICU admission.
Data collection included patient demographics, Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) II (9), Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS) II (10) and Charlson comorbidity scores (11).
8 22-29 CI = confidence interval, APACHE=Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation, SAPS = Simplified Acute Physiology Score, ARDS=acute respiratory distress syndrome, ALI = acute lung injury, ICU=intensive care unit.
Several studies have reported a poor performance of the Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II) and Simplified Acute Physiology Score II (SAPS II) in predicting mortality in a new population and/or different case mix (3-10).
The majority of intensive care units (ICU) across Australia and New Zealand collect the variables for three internationally validated outcome prediction models: 1) the Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation model version II (2) (APACHE II); 2) the APACHE model version IIIJ (3) (APACHE III) and 3) the Simplified Acute Physiology Score version II (SAPS II) (4).
