One or two coexisting conditions were present in Demographic and clinical characteristics of patients in high-risk PSI groups by age.

However, mortality was 0. The decision to admit a patient with CAP in medical wards or ICU may depend on subjective clinical views poft peculiarities of the local healthcare setting and different studies have demonstrated that the establishment of valid criteria for a definition of severe pneumonia would provide a more reliable basis for improving patient risk assessment and therefore help physicians in their daily practice 2,5,6 The Pneumonia Patient Outcomes Research Team PORT 7 developed a prediction rule to identify patients with CAP who are at risk for death numonia other adverse outcomes Pneumonia Severity Index [PSI].
Multivariate analysis was performed by using a forward step-wise conditional logistic regression procedure considering all variables included in PORT-score as independent variables and mortality as the dependent variable. You can change the settings or obtain more information by clicking here.
Patients and methods The Hospital Universitario Virgen de la Arrixaca in Murcia Spain is a university teaching hospital comprising beds, of them belonging to the General Hospital.

Points are assigned based on age, co-morbid disease, abnormal physical findings, and crirerios laboratory results. Are you a health professional able to prescribe or dispense drugs? There were no other exclusion criteria.
Simpler criteria to assess mortality in CAP were identified. Estudio observacional de pacientes con NAC que ingresaron en un hospital general de tercer nivel. Mean hospitalization stay was calculated excluding patients who died to avoid artificial low stays in more severe patients.
The PSI Algorithm is detailed below.
This site-of-care decision is medically and economically important and almost all of the major decisions regarding management of CAP, including diagnostic and treatment issues 9revolve around the initial assessment of severity 1. Eur Respir J, 15pp. Score taken at hospital admission.

Community-acquired pneumonia in the elderly: Clin Infect Dis, 38pp. There is a need for simpler prognostic models to guide the site-of-care decision to ensure that as many patients as possible are treated on an ambulatory basis and to identify those at high risk of mortality. Van der Eerden, R. This categorization method has been replicated by others  and is comparable to the CURB in predicting mortality. Epidemiological, clinical, radiological and laboratory data associated with mortality were analysed.
We think that it might be more practical to implement easily memorable criteria and dealing with 5 variables instead of 20 offers greater simplicity and applicability.
