Risk stratification for short-term mortality at hospital admission for acute exacerbations of COPD.

Summary of "Risk stratification for short-term mortality at hospital admission for acute exacerbations of COPD."

Exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (ECOPD) are associated with increased in-hospital and short-term mortality. Developing an easy-to-use model to predict adverse outcomes will be useful in daily clinical practice and will facilitate management decisions. We aimed to assess mortality rates and potential predictors for short-term mortality after severe ECOPD. Classification and Regression Tree (CART) model was used to identify predictors of adverse outcome.

The C-reactive protein (CRP) levels obtained at hospital admission are associated with the prognosis of several cardiovascular diseases, including acute coronary syndrome. Although the admission CRP l...

Short and long-term geriatric mortality after acute traumatic subdural hemorrhage.

Acute subdural hemorrhage often occurs in those ≥65 years of age after trauma and tends to yield poor clinical outcomes. Previous studies have demonstrated a propensity toward high in-hospital morta...

Independent factors associate with hospital mortality in patients with acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease requiring intensive care unit admission: Focusing on the eosinophil-to-neutrophil ratio.

Factors associated with hospital mortality are unclear in patients with acute exacerbation of COPD (AECOPD) requiring intensive care unit (ICU) admission. We aimed to characterize these patients and i...
