SESSION TITLE: Critical Care - ICU Management

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: APACHE (Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation) II scoring system is the most widely used severity-of-illness scoring system. It combines age, physiological measurements, co-morbidities, and indication for admission to estimate the likelihood of mortality in patients admitted to the medical intensive care unit (ICU). However, similar to other scoring systems, these calculations are time-intensive and difficult to perform efficiently in the ICU. Furthermore, the APACHE II score has not been validated in the veteran population. The aim of this study is to assess the validity of the APACHE II scoring system in predicting mortality in a VA medical ICU population and to develop a simplified survival scoring system. Our hypothesis is that the APACHE II score does not perform as well as it does in the general population.
