  1. The SUPPORT prognostic model : objective estimates of survival for seriously ill hospitalized adults.

    Article - En anglais


    To develop and validate a prognostic model that estimates survival over a 180-day period for seriously ill hospitalized adults (phase I of SUPPORT [Study to Understand Prognoses and Preferences for Outcomes and Risks of Treatments]) and to compare this model's predictions with those of an existing prognostic system and with physicians'independent estimates (SUPPORT phase II)..


    A survival model was developed using the following predictor variables : diagnosis, age, number of days in the hospital before study entry, presence of cancer, neurologic function, and 11 physiologic measures recorded on day 3 after study entry.

    Physicians were interviewed on day 3. Patients were followed for survival for 180 days after study entry..


    The area under the receiver-operating characteristics (ROC) curve for prediction of surviving 180 days was 0.79 in phase I, 0.78 in the phase II independent validation, and 0.78 when the acute physiology score from the APACHE (Acute Physiology, Age, Chronic Health Evaluation) III prognostic scoring system was substituted for the SUPPORT physiology socre.

    For phase II patients, the SUPPORT model had equal discrimination and slightly improved calibration compared with physicians'estimates improved both predictive accuracy (ROC curve area=0.82) and the ability to identify patients with high probabilities of survival or death.
