Intoxicación aguda: mortalidad



Triage vital signs predict in-hospital mortality among emergency department patients with acute poisoning: a case control study
Jiun-Hao Yu y col. BMC Health Services Research 2012, 12: 262 doi:10.1186/1472-6963-12-262
"Poisoning patients who admitted to our emergency department during the study period were enrolled. Patient’s demographic data were collected and odds ratios (OR) of triage vital signs to in-hospital mortality were assessed. Receiver operating characteristic curve was used to determine the proper cut-off value of vital signs that predict in-hospital mortality. Logistic regression analysis was performed to test the association of in-hospital mortality and vital signs after adjusting for different variables."
