Impact of Surge Strain and Pandemic Progression on Prognostication by an Established COVID-19-Specific Severity Score

Yek, C., Wang, J., Fintzi, J., et al. (2023). Impact of Surge Strain and Pandemic Progression on Prognostication by an Established COVID-19-Specific Severity Score. Critical Care Explorations. 5(12):e1021.
The authors of this article analyzed the modified 4C (m4C) score, a tool that predicted hospital capacity during the COVID-19 pandemic. They found that mortality prediction according to m4C was more robust during patient surges and less effective during later waves. They conclude that crisis standards of care guidelines should be frequently reassessed to ensure resources are allocated adequately.
