The quick sepsis-related organ failure assessment (qSOFA) score was proposed as a risk tool to facilitate rapid identification of patients at risk of mortality or intensive care unit (ICU) admission related to suspected infection.
The quick sepsis-related organ failure assessment (qSOFA) score was proposed as a risk tool to facilitate rapid identification of patients at risk of mortality or intensive care unit (ICU) admission related to suspected infection. The score was originally designed to predict mortality conditional on baseline risk, but in practice and subsequent evaluations, it is often used as a stand-alone tool. So how does the accuracy of qSOFA for predicting mortality change across increasing levels of comorbidity burden?
In this webcast, co-author Stephanie Parks Taylor, MD, will tackle that question as she discusses the Critical Care Medicine article “Predictive accuracy of qSOFA for hospital mortality decreases with increasing comorbidity burden among patients admitted for suspected infection.” Dr. Taylor will also address the article’s relevance to clinical practice and invite participants to ask questions and engage in a conversation on this topic. Anthony T. Gerlach, PharmD, FCCM, will moderate the webcast.
