Description:

Patients with a peripheral blood hematopoietic stem cell (PBSCT) or bone marrow transplant (BMT) tend to have a poor prognosis if they are admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU). Price et al developed a prognostic model for predicting mortality in these patients. This can help determine if intubation or other intervention is likely to benefit the patient. The authors are from MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
