Predicting hospital mortality in COVID‐19 hemodialysis patients with developed scores
Seminars in Dialysis — Sevinc C, Demirci R, Timur O, et al. | August 04, 2021
In COVID‐19 hemodialysis patients, the risk of developing critical illness can be estimated using various risk scores such as COVID-GRAM Critical Illness Risk Score (COVID-GRAM), quick COVID-19 Severity Index (qCSI), and systemic immune-inflammation index (SII).
A composition of admission to the ICU, invasive ventilation, or death described critical illness.
Mortality in HD patients could be reduced by estimating the risk of critical illness.
There is 13.8 times increased need for ICU and 21.3 times increased mortality when the qCSI is over 6.5.
The ICU need increased 14.7 times and the mortality increased 33.7 times when the COVID-GRAM score is > 157.
SII score of > 1,145 is linked with 4.2 times increased necessity for ICU and 3.1 times increased mortality.
