Doctors design tool to predict rapid COVID-19 decline
from Medical Xpress
Two Yale emergency physicians have designed a tool to help clinicians better identify COVID-19 patients whose condition is likely to worsen rapidly and who will need intensive care within 24 hours. The tool, which uses predictive modeling, is called the COVID-19 severity index and is available online. To use it, emergency room doctors input just three patient parameters: rate of breathing, oxygen level, and the amount of oxygen required from a nasal cannula, a device used to deliver supplemental oxygen.
