In order to evaluate and compare the predictive ability of the APACHE II (Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II) and the SAPS (Simplified Acute Physiology Score) scoring systems in relation to outcome in a medical intensive care unit (ICU). The authors reviewed consecutive medical ICU admissions (n = 482) at a tertiary hospital over a 2-year period. For each patient, demographic data, diagnosis, APACHE II score, SAPS score and ICU outcome complied during the first 24 hrs of the ICU… Expand
