  1. Inconsistency of a model aimed at predicting bacteremia in hospitalized patients.

    Article - En anglais

    Clinical prediction rules can help physicians determine the necessity for blood cultures in specific patients and/or in whom empiric antibiotic treatment should be administered.

    Before adopting a prediction rule its validity must be evaluated in different settings.

    We revealed independent predictors of true bacteremia and developed a risk score based on them in one group of adult hospitalized patients (n=474; derivation set).

    An attempt was made to validate this risk score in a second group of in-patients at the same hospital (n=438; validation set).

    The derivation set included 540 blood culture episodes and the validation set 516.
