ICU scoring system in covid19

Details and patient eligibility


In this study, we planned to investigate the role and determine the predictive performance of both APACHE II and SAPS II scoring systems and compare them in COVID-19 patients admitted to the intensive care unit of Assiut University Hospital.

Full description

Since the start of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, intensive care units (ICUs) worldwide have struggled to treat affected patients who require a completely different approach to treatment than other patients [1]* .This study aims to evaluate the efficacy of single dose analgesia in combination with local anaesthesia to control pain during TUS guided procedures. It also aims to assess the effect of its use on procedure performance time and rate of complications occurrence compared to local anaesthesia alone.Although many severe cases are admitted to ICUs, it is unknown whether the conventional disease-severity scoring systems that were developed for ICU patients can be applied to patients with COVID-19.Several recent studies have used Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) and Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS) to provide information on the clinical severity of COVID-19 [2-4]*. However, very few reports have examined their validity of applying them to patients with COVID-19.

Inclusion and exclusion criteria

Inclusion Criteria:•

  • • This study will be conducted on laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 patients who will be transferred to the intensive care unit of Assiut University Hospital

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients would be excluded from this study if they died or were discharged from the intensive care unit prior collection of data required for both the APACHE II and SAPS II scoring systems, if they were discharged before their outcomes were determined and if we could not obtain consent from them or their companions to participate in this study. All patients involved will be subjected to a full history with special stress on age, gender, special habits, and associated diseases. Information such as the patient's need for ventilatory support as well as the length of ICU stay will be entered. Also, the laboratory results and Imaging findings will be registered. Scores of APACHE II and SAPS II were calculated as illustrated in the previously published works *[5,6]* .Patients will be followed up until their outcome was determined.
