- To review recent revisions of systems for estimating the probability of hospital mortality of adult intensive care unit (ICU) patients.
Emphasis on comparison of components of systems and potential uses.
- Published articles in which the systems were presented.
- Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE III), Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS II), and Mortality Probability Models (MPM II) are the major severity systems for ICU patients.
- Information on variables collected in the systems, characteristics of databases from which they were developed, and reported performance of models were evaluated from published articles.
