We conducted a prospective observational review of 100 consecutive patients admitted to our ICU. We collected data relating to daily maximum organ dysfunction scores. Outcome was defined in terms of length of ICU stay and ICU mortality.
Maximum and admission SOFA scores are of prognostic value in the intensive care setting; allowing patients with increased risk of mortality and prolonged stay to be identified.
