SAPS II

Simplified Acute Physiology Score Intensive care A 'third-generation' system for estimating in-hospital mortality in adult ICU Pts, based on assessments of most severely affected values during the 1st 24 hrs in the ICU and subjecting the results to logistic regression modeling techniques. See APACHE III, MPM II, Prognostic scoring systems.

SAPS II, APACHE II and SOFA score were calculated at admission.
Comparison of the performance of SAPS II, SAPS 3, APACHE II, and their customized prognostic models in a surgical intensive care unit.
Our aim was to assess the performance and utility of APACHE IV & SAPS II scoring system in predicting ICU mortality in severe sepsis and septic shock patients in a single tertiary multidisciplinary ICU.
Gender, age, Simplified Acute Physiology Score II (SAPS II), medical history, GCS score on scene, World Federation of Neurosurgeons score (WFNS), Fisher score, aneurysm location, surgery upon admission, ventriculostomy realization, type of aneurysm, clip or coiling, and antibioprophylaxis were prospectively recorded.
The patient was admitted to the surgical intensive care unit (ICU) and had by admission a calculated SAPS II score of 29.
Disease severity of septic patients was assessed at the ICU by obtaining APACHE II (Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II), SOFA (Sequential Organ Failure Assessment), and SAPS II (Simplified Acute Physiology Score) scores.
Data on patient age, APACHE II score, SAPS II and number of reintubations, as well as number of days on MV or number of days of stay in ICU were expressed as median and 25th-75th interquartile range, while other data were expressed as number (%).
Of note, patients with the diagnosis of isolated pulmonary TB presented higher SAPS II and APACHE II scores (p = 0.002 and p = 0.024) and were more likely to need ventilatory and hemodynamic support (resp., 85.7% versus 45.4%, p = 0.17; and 67.8% versus 18.2%, p = 0.05).
