Asadollahi et al identified risk factors associated with hospital mortality in a patient who was admitted acutely. The authors are from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
(1) plasma glucose
(2) serum sodium
(3) white blood cell count
<= 11 mmol/L
> 11 mmol/L
>= 125 mmol/L
< 125 mmol/L
white blood cell count
<= 10 * 10^9/L
> 10 * 10^9/L
number of risk factors =
= SUM(points for all 3 parameters)
• minimum number of risk factors: 0
• maximum number of risk factors: 3
Pattern of the Factors
glucose + WBC + sodium
WBC + sodium
glucose + sodium
glucose + WBC
• The mortality rate when all 3 parameters are normal was not stated. The mortality rates in Figures 1, 2 and 3 are about 1% for when each parameter is normal.
