Pneumonia Severity Index Pneumonia Severity Index Presentation Transcript

  • Pneumonia Severity Index Shank's Wee Wee Vol. 1
  • MedisGroup Cohort Study • 1989 cohort of 38000 pts. • Developed PSI based on o History o Physical Exam o Lab0ratory Data • Five Classifications as a risk stratification tool • Inappropriately used as decision tool for disposition.1
  • Patient Outcomes Research Team (PORT) • Research team with multiple publications, and validation studies up to 1996 building from original cohort study.2 • Prediction Rule article in NEJM 1996 • http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/N EJM199701233360402#t=article. • Exclusion based on HIV and recent hospitalization3
  • Two Step Scale • Step 1 defines class I (very low risk group) o Age<50, HR<125, SBP>90, RR<30, 35<Temp<40 and No: Heart, Liver, Renal disease or Cancer. • Stage 2 delineates all others into classes II-V based on Labs. • Mortality in class II (0.6-0.9%) in class III (up to 2.8%) • Class IV and V- Strongly think about inpatient.
  • CURB-65 and Others • CURB-65: British Thoracic Society • CRB-65: for people who don't like labs • IDSA/ATS 2007 consensus guidelines • SCAP score and SMART-COP: for deciding ICU admission4 And the List Goes On
  • Comparisons • 2010 Meta-analysis demonstrates PSI/PORT to be more sensitive than CURB-65, CURB is more specific • Negative predictive value of all 4 scores studied correlated well for low risk pts.5 • Second Meta-analysis in 2010 found no difference in prediction of mortality.6
  • Summary • Use your decision tools and use them correctly! • Step 1 of PORT decision tool finds low risk patients: Age, Vitals, History. • Use the classifications in discussions with your consults/colleagues. • Access all the tools at MDcalc.com
