  1. 1. SMART-COP tool for assessing severity of community- acquired pneumonia (CAP) in adults CAP confirmed on chest X-ray 50 years old or less more than 50 years old S systolic BP less than 90 mm Hg 2 points S systolic BP less than 90 mm Hg 2 points M multilobar CXR involvement 1 point M multilobar CXR involvement 1 point A albumin less than 35 g/L 1 point A albumin less than 35 g/L 1 point R respiratory rate 25 br/min or more 1 point R respiratory rate 30 br/min or more 1 point T tachycardia 125 bpm or more 1 point T tachycardia 125 bpm or more 1 point C confusion (acute) 1 point C confusion (acute) 1 point O oxygen low 2 points O oxygen low 2 points PaO2 less than 70 mm Hg, or PaO2 less than 60 mm Hg, or O2 saturation 93% or less, or O2 saturation 90% or less, or PaO2 /FiO2 less than 333 PaO2 /FiO2 less than 250 P pH less than 7.35 2 points P pH less than 7.35 2 points Total points score (maximum 11)BP = blood pressure, CXR = chest X-ray, br = breaths, bpm = beats per minute, PaO2 = partial pressure of oxygen,FiO2 = fraction of oxygen in inspired airAdapted with permission from: Charles PG, Wolfe R, Whitby M, Fine MJ, Fuller AJ, Stirling R, et al.
