About Sick Scores

Signs of Inflammation in Children that can Kill (SICK score) is a new severity-of-illness score. It uses the physical signs of the Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS) and its continuum - Multiple Organ Dysfunction Syndrome (MODS).


The development of the score used multiple logistic regression model coefficients converted to integer scores that have been published earlier.
