Abstract

All investigated parameters have a predictive value in patients with an infection in the ED. According to the trend observed, the APACHE II score seems to have the best discriminative power. Use of the APACHE II score already at the time of admission to the ED may be useful for stratifying patients at risk for ICU treatment, thereby using the same score in the ED and the ICU.
