Emergency Medicine & Critical Care

Objective:

severity, prognosis, stage

ICD-10:

R57

Description:

Niskanen et al developed 2 models based on logistic regression to predict in-hospital mortality for patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) as a result of a gastroenterologic emergency. This can help identify patients who may benefit from more aggressive interventions. The authors are from 6 university hospitals in Finland.
