Among the PSSs, the Simplified Acute Physiology Score
(SAPS) was investigated thoroughly and revised due to the improvements in health care (6,7).
Severity of clinical findings was assessed at enrollment using the Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II) score and Simplified Acute Physiology Score
2 (SAPS2) and on a daily basis during the ICU stay using the Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score.
Comparison of Acute Physiology And Chronic Health Evaluations II and III and Simplified Acute Physiology Score
II: a prospective cohort study evaluating these methods to predict outcome in a German interdisciplinary intensive care unit.
However, the subset of patients who underwent cardiac surgery was excluded during the development of several general scoring systems such as APACHE and the Simplified Acute Physiology Score
. Even so, most of these scoring systems are used in cardiac surgery ICUs because of the lack of an appropriate risk index for this patient subset (21).
[1,2,3] Many scoring systems have been developed and used successfully to grade the severity of acute peritonitis like, Acute physiology and chronic health evaluation (APACHE) II score, Simplified acute physiology score
(SAPS), Sepsis severity score (SSS), Ranson score, Imrie score, Mannheim peritonitis index (MPI).
A multiple logistic regression model was then fit to the data to show a relationship between the measured sentiment and 30-day mortality while controlling for gender, type of ICU, and simplified acute physiology score
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

for risk prediction in unselected critically ill patients," Critical Care, vol.
In literature, numerous scoring systems were used to assess patients with poor prognoses, such as the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), the Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE-II), the Simplified Acute Physiology Score
(SAPS),4 Body Mass Index (BMI),5 plasma cholinesterase (PChE) levels, biochemical and inflammatory response markers and red cell distribution width (RDW).6
(23) showed the prognostic value of RDW for ICU mortality, in-hospital mortality, and Simplified Acute Physiology Score
On admission to the ICU, the Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) and Simplified Acute Physiology Score
(SAPS 3) scores were collected [6-9].
