Model for Predicting Death or Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation in Patient with Acute Lung Injury

Purpose:

To evaluate a patient with acute lung injury for risk of death or prolonged mechanical ventilation using the score of Gajic et al.

Specialty:

Pulmonology & Critical Care

Objective:

risk factors, severity, prognosis, stage, complications, selection

ICD-10:

J80

Description:

Gajic et al developed a model for predicting an adverse outcome in patients with acute lung injury. This can help identify a patient who may require more aggressive management based on parameters measured soon after admission to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The authors are from the Second International Study of Mechanical Ventilation and ARDS-net Investigators from the United States and Europe.
