Probability of Mortality Model of Groeger et al for Predicting Outcome for Cancer Patients Requiring Mechanical Ventilation

Purpose:

To estimate the probability of hospital mortality for an adult cancer patient who requires mechanical ventilation.

Specialty:

Critical Care
Emergency Medicine
Hematology Oncology
General Surgery

Objective:

severity, prognosis, stage

ICD-10:

J96, R57

Description:

Groeger et al developed a model for predicting mortality in cancer patients who require mechanical ventilation for respiratory failure. In general these patients have a poor prognosis, and having a reasonable estimate of the prognosis can aid physicians and family members in making management decisions. This was a multicenter study, with the authors from Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Mount Sinai Medical Center, MD Anderson, City of Hope National Medical Center, and Johns Hopkins Hospital.
