Reuters Health - 04/02/2022 - For patients hospitalized with bloodstream infection, a pair of new scores can help doctors predict how likely they are to survive 14 days and six months, respectively, researchers in Germany report. "The use of the BLOOMY (Bloodstream Infection due to Multidrug-resistant Organisms: Multicenter Study on Risk Factors and Clinical Outcomes) scores to identify populations at high risk of mortality could facilitate the development of therapeutic and management protocols for in-hospital patients at high risk of short-term mortality, and also decision making at hospital discharge with tailored follow-up of patients at high risk of long-term mortality," they write in The Lancet Infectious Diseases. "The scores could also have a pivotal role in improving patient selection in clinical trials and epidemiological studies that assess the burden of sepsis," they add. To develop and validate the two scores, Dr. Evelina Tacconelli of the DZIF G...
