High Lactate levels have been validated to identify the degree of shock and also response to resuscitation in patients with a normal blood pressure and a Tukey post hoc test revealed that patients with modie Shock Index >1.3 had statistically signicantly higher L lactate levels.

Equivalency between the shock index and subtracting the systolic blood pressure from the heart rate: an observational cohort study

The simple shock index strongly correlated with the shock index, and two one-sided tests revealed a very strong equivalency between theshock index and the index estimated by the above equation using the simple shockindex.

Clinical guided computer tomography decisions are advocated in potentially severely injured trauma patients: a one-year audit in a level 1 trauma Centre with long pre-hospital times

The high proportion of patients with no or only minor injuries detected in the SWBCT group and the significantly lower use of CT among children, indicate that use of a selective CT examination strategy in a higher proportion of the authors' patients would have approximated the ICRP’s justification level three, the individual dose limitation principle, better.

Reverse shock index multiplied by Glasgow Coma Scale score (rSIG) is a simple measure with high discriminant ability for mortality risk in trauma patients: an analysis of the Japan Trauma Data Bank

rSIG ((SBP/HR) × GCS score) is easy to calculate without the need for additional information, charts or equipment, and can be a more reliable triage tool for identifying risk levels in trauma patients.

The Assessment and Interpretation of Vital Signs

This review reports recent research into the four classic vital signs and how their normal ranges should be defined. It also considers other parameters that might be used as additional vital signs

Shock Index as a Predictor of Myocardial Damage and Clinical Outcome in ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction.

STEMI patients with an elevated admission shock index had more pronounced myocardial and microvascular damage and the shock index was independently associated with MACE at 12 months and identified as an independent predictor of MACE.

Evaluation of Miniature Wireless Vital Signs Monitor in a Trauma Intensive Care Unit.

The findings suggest that MF does not accurately predict the most critical patients, likely because erroneous PWTT values confound MF calculations, which are promising, but require fine-tuning before deployment.

Argininemia and plasma arginine bioavailability – predictive factors of mortality in the severe trauma patients?

Those results confirm the high prevalence of arginine depletion in severe trauma patients and the relevance of Argininemia and PAB as predictive factors of mortality in this context.

Vital Sign Prediction of Adverse Maternal Outcomes in Women with Hypovolemic Shock: The Role of Shock Index

For women with hypovolemic shock from obstetric hemorrhage, shock index was consistently a strong predictor of all adverse outcomes, and in lower-level facilities in low resource settings, it is recommended to recommend a shock index threshold of ≥ 0.7.
