APACHE II


Also found in: Wikipedia.
Acute Physiology & Chronic Health Evaluation II. A ‘second generation’ system of objective measures for predicting the outcome of critically ill patients in an ICU based on age, physiologic status and underlying health; it acts as a tool for scoring the severity of illness in patients admitted in an intensive care unit

APACHE II

Comparison of Ranson, Glasgow, MOSS, SIRS, BISAP, APACHE II, CTSI score, CRP, procalcitonin in predicting severity, organ failure, pancreatic necrosis and mortality in acute pancreatitis.
The study was undertaken to study the frequency of established risk factors for AL, management and outcome based on APACHE II score in a tertiary care Hospital.
A widely used ICU prognostic scoring model, the Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II) scoring system has been recognized.
Thus, no bed-side prognostic model could be established on the basis of these studies.7 The current study was planned to assess and compare three validated severity scores in the shape of Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE II), Confusion, Urea, Respiratory Rate, Blood Pressure (CURB 65) and Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) scoring systems.
Correlations of the serum sTim-3 with IL-6, IL-10, and TNF-[alpha] levels and the APACHE II score
The APACHE II model has been developed in intensive care units (ICUs) and been applied in the research and risk stratification of critically ill patients (5, 6).
The average age of patients was 44.08 +- 18.14 (years), BMI (kg/m2) 27.84 +- 5.56 and APACHE II Score 17.28 +- 6.96.
In addition to CVC removal and its timing, the following variables were analyzed as potential factors associated with 30-day mortality: age, sex, APACHE II score (calculated on the day of the incident candidemia), concomitant medical conditions (cancer, diabetes, renal failure, cardiac disease, lung disease, cirrhosis), recent surgery (of any type requiring any anesthesia other than local anesthesia within three months prior to the incident candidemia), dialysis, mucositis, neutropenia (<500neutrophils/[mm.sup.3]), receipt of corticosteroids or total parenteral nutrition within 14 days before the incident candidemia, Candida species, and antifungal drug class (azole, amphotericin B or echinocandin).
